Six Senses Yao Noi to welcome Michelin-starred Chef Anthony Demetre

Posted on September 25, 2013


Michelin-starred Chef Anthony Demetre is the latest top international guest chef to visit Six Senses Yao Noi, Phuket. The British celebrity chef will present just three exclusive events from 20th through 23rd October 2013.

Chef-patron of London’s Arbutus, Wild Honey and Les Deux Salons, Anthony Demetre is surely one of the most accepted and talented chefs working in Britain right now. After receiving his first Michelin Star in 2000 he opened Arbutus, which won many prestigious awards and universal praise for its excellent food and its casual, non-tablecloth approach to fine dining.

The scheduled events are much more than enjoying great food prepared by a great chef. They invite participation by guests, who may accompany Chef Anthony as he shops for the freshest ingredients at a local fish farm and marketplace, travelling by long tail boat and tuk-tuk. Shopping has never been such a wonderful experience as ingredients for the communal dinner to be held on the first evening, are selected.


The second event at the Chef’s Table will focus on specific food intolerances and allergies experienced in modern society, where chemically enhanced food production methods could be responsible for food issues of which many people are affected. The chef’s mouthwatering dinner will follow the resort’s concept of offering fresh, local and chemical free food straight from the organic gardens.

This is the perfect synergy between the sustainable and organic approach of the resort and Chef Anthony’s food concept of casual, healthy food. So apart from an excellent dinner, there is an educational aspect for guests who are concerned about their long-term health. He will work closely with the resort’s Executive Chef, Anthony Reynolds and his team.

Accolades come thick and fast for Chef Anthony. Giles Coren, British food critic and TV presenter, said of him “Anthony weaves his slow cook magic and straddles better than anyone else the boundary between new techniques and old recipes”. Jay Rayner, British Journalist, wrote “There are lots of things to get excited about at Arbutus. Great ingredients put together with intelligence and taste; a kitchen, which knows how to make the best use of the best ingredients”.
