LAAMU, Maldives – March 22, 2017 – Six Senses Laamu features an organic garden where 40 different herbs, vegetables, salad leaves and micro-herbs are grown. Chef Martin and his culinary team have teamed up with the gardeners to create a daily-changing menu, entirely based on fresh and organic ingredients, served by the pool at Sip Sip.
The menu features a different starter, salad, pizza and dessert every day for guests to choose from. “The idea is to offer guests an additional healthy set of light dish options to enjoy by the pool with locally sourced ingredients. Everything is prepared simply with no addition of processed or modified foods,” says Martin, executive chef.
Chef Martin shares one of his favorite, so far, Farm to Pool recipes for Six Senses Laamu Garden Salad.

Sliced red radish
Four avocado slices
Extra virgin olive oil

For the flaxseed crackers
