LANGKAWI, FEBRUARY 2015 – With the start of a brand new year and endless possibilities ahead, the pleasure of dining, gathering and celebrating in Berjaya Langkawi Resort is taken to a whole new level with the introduction of The CHEFS (Cuisine, Hospitality Experience & Food Showcase) programme. Featuring seven of the resort’s main culinary aces as the focal point of the food galore at the resort, the programme brings together an eclectic mix of illustrious expertise by each and every one of the chefs to create exclusive culinary experiences on the island.
“It is of utmost importance that our guests are able to savour their mealtimes and enjoy themselves in absolute confidence and complete satisfaction at our various restaurants. As it is always the experience that counts, this showcase heightens the entire dining experience for guests as a whole and makes mealtimes here exceptional,” said Chris Niuh, General Manager of Berjaya Langkawi Resort.
He added, “Besides, we have an amazing team of talented chefs here. Being at the core of the acclaimed culinary offerings at the resort, they most certainly deserve the credit. We are proud to feature the culinary craftsmanship of these experts and use this platform to put them on the map.”
Heading the team of culinary experts at Berjaya Langkawi Resort is Executive Sous Chef, Loke Boon Seng, and under his purview, the six other chefs in The CHEFS programme are individually in-charge of running the day-to-day operations in the main dining outlets at the resort. With The CHEFS programme in place, not only does it serve as a platform for guests to get to know the dexterous chefs behind the appeasing gourmet offerings at the resort, it also brings these culinary experts together to celebrate exquisite tastes and fine culinary discoveries.
Riding on the conversion of the resort’s favourite Malaysian-styled dining outlet, Dayang Café into an all-buffet dinner outlet, The CHEFS programme hikes up the fervour for guests with a live showcase of their culinary skills. Amidst the extensive variety and the vibrantly flavoured daily themes, this new buffet offering includes seven specialty dishes by the seven experts. Defining each day of the week, these exclusive selections make up the ‘Chef’s Signature Dish of the Day’ and render a brand new treat for guests every night.
“In addition to the array of fresh offerings at the salad bar, cold dishes, soups and appetisers, hot dishes as well as sweet dessert treats which interchange according to the nightly themes, we feature different culinary specials prepared for you on the spot each night,” said Chef Loke.
“We are delighted to share our trademark dishes and bring out the best flavours to be savoured by all. As the seven of us come from different backgrounds and have different specialty skills, guests can look forward to a fusion of distinct flavours, each unique in its own way,” he added.
As part of The CHEFS’ programme, Dayang Café’s dinner buffet features signature dishes from the seven chefs as below:
