KANIKA CULINARY TEAM AT ATLANTIS

CHEFS THEODOR FALSER & PANIKOS NEARCHOU TEAM UP IN DUBAI

Our Hotels consultant Michellin Star Chef Theodor Falser received an invitation to the Atlantis Culinary Month in Dubai. Theodor Falser was there among other celebrity chefs to take centre stage cooking. In addition, our own Kanika Culinary Development Chef, Panikos Nearchou, was chosen to travel with him, as part of his team.

Atlantis Culinary Month

Atlantis, the Palm hotel hosts the Atlantis Culinary Month for the past four years. It showcases a wide range of food experiences, ideal for foodies. Specifically, the 2021 event included unique experiences from celebrity chef appearances to underwater dining. In fact, they invited Theodor among other celebrity Michelin star chefs, to create a 6-course menu for the White Restaurant. The event is one of the best food festivals in Dubai.

Theodor Falser and Kanika Culinary Team joins Ibrahim Ata

Panikos Nearchou, joined Theodor Falser at this international food festival, as his assistant. Additionally, they joined forces with Chef Ibrahim Ata for a unique four hands dinner. For two nights only, diners could enjoy a six-course set menu with each dish paying homage to nature. They used only hand-picked ingredients and locally sourced produce. The main aim was to create delicious food. Led by Michelin star chef Theodor Falser, diners had the opportunity to taste delightful dishes. Some of their creations included freshly baked farmer bread with linseeds and a superb risotto with stinging nettle. In addition, a honey-glazed roasted duck breast dish and a carrot butter poached turbot fillet plated with carrots, forest garlic, and puntarella. Last but not least, a brown butter rye-bread ice cream. In other words, just amazing food!

A Unique Culinary Experience for the Kanika Culinary Team

Specifically, during their stay in Dubai, the two chefs had the opportunity to enjoy the hotel cuisine. As special guests, as well as by getting an insight of behind the scenes. Together, they took charge of the kitchen by creating the menu for two days. In the end, upon his return, Panikos Nearchou stated:

“The visit was extremely constructive and gave me the opportunity to gain new experiences outside of Cyprus. Also, it gave me the opportunity to enrich my knowledge which will aid me in my future development within the hotels’ industry.”

Theodor Falser’s Collaboration with Kanika Hotels & Resorts in Cyprus

To begin with, Theodor Falser is a world-renowned culinary icon with over 30 years of experience in creating superb dishes. A Michelin Star Chef with a host of accolades to his name. Theodor worked closely with Kanika Culinary Team for years. Particularly, Theodor has worked with our excellent team of chefs to create epicurean tastes. The collaboration began in 2018 with Theodor Falser as a consultant for the Amavi | MadeForTwo Hotels in Paphos. At the Amavi, he designed the menus for two of the restaurants. Immenso with Asian and Peruvian cuisine and the Nocturne with Meditteranean cuisine. Also, these menus will apply to the new Amanti | MadeForTwo Hotels in Ayia Napa, as well.

Plans for the future

We have now expanded the collaboration to all Kanika Hotels and Resorts. In fact, Theodor is now working with our team to innovate the menus for all of the hotels. Theodor is working on two of our restaurants at the Olympic Lagoon Resorts. Specifically, he is working on new menus for two of our restaurants in Ayia Napa and Paphos. In addition, he is working on menus for Alexander the Great in Paphos. In Theodor’s own words:
