To many who explore the world through taste and flavours, food has always been a way of exploring different cultures and experiences around the world. One taste could tell a person so much about the food culture of a country- the spices, herbs and flavours ingrained into one dish is sometimes all it takes to fall in love with a country and its culture and heritage.
Therefore, in a way the culinary world and cooking is an art form that requires specific skills to deliver the perfect dish.
Due to the diversity in the methods and ingredients used all around the globe, becoming a well-renowned chef is also a learned skill: but for some, it is a gift that they are born with.
And over the years, chefs from all around the globe have tested their traditional flavours with flavours they picked up from different parts of the globe in order to create different types of creative fusion food. This is also the case when it comes to the Maldives.
As a country with so much diversity in its flavour palette, over the years chefs from all around the world have started travelling to the Maldives and playing with the different ingredients available at their disposal to create something new.
Some of the differences in dishes cooked by different chefs are extremely evident while others are so good at mimicking or playing with the different flavours that the flavours are distinctive without taking away from the culture.
However, with the islands of the Maldives being so spread out, it can often become challenging for the chefs to find the different dishes and ingredients available on different islands.
As it can be hard to connect or share their ideas and creativity on one platform for all the other chefs to explore, the new portal created by Best Buy Maldives known as ‘Maldives Chef Forum’ might become the newest hype in the culinary field.
With the help of this forum, chefs can blog and review different products, helping each other indirectly and creating some competition and development in the culinary field of the Maldives.
This is a big step towards development in the culinary field as this is the first of its kind to be developed in the Maldives. The portal was inaugurated at the opening ceremony of Hotel Asia, and the culinary world is surely waiting for the official launch that is to take place soon.
