Bare Grills BBQ Series

July 20, 2020 - Corporate Food and Beverage Director Jonathan Heath joins our Executive Chefs to find out their go-to snacks during the lockdown as part of our #AtHomeWithSixSenses series. Load up the coals, pour a cool drink and enjoy the banter!

  • KUHLHAFILAH (LAAMU)

The first Bare Grills session took place on June 26, when Corporate Food, and Beverage Director Jonathan Heath, joined Executive Chef Stefan Goehcke at Six Senses Laamu, Maldives.

With a pristine white sand beach and crystal blue lagoon behind him, Stefan was in a buoyant mood. Originally from Germany, Stefan’s go-to snack is sauerkraut, or the fresh catch of the day such as tuna from the waters around the Laamu atoll. He loves international old school rock music and his favorite drink is red wine or cooling coconut water (depending on the time of day). His favorite restaurant is Leaf restaurant, which is light, bright and right on the beach!

Another day, another glorious backdrop, this time at Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand. On July 3, Jonathan, dressed in his best BBQ shirt and joined Executive Chef Walter Butti for more enviable views and chats around the heated coals.

Tomahawk with Aioli

  4. Start at high temperature to brown the meat all around, then turn the temperature down to around 80°C for 25 minutes

  4. Slice the Tomahawk and serve the Aioli as a dipping sauce

On July 10 we were treated to two glorious views. Executive Chef Marc Lores showed off the vineyards basking in the sunshine behind him while this time Jonathan didn’t need a fake background as he joined from Six Senses Yao Noi.

Originally from Catalonia, Marc Lorés Panadés recently joined Six Senses Douro Valley as the resort’s Executive Chef. His personal values around wellness, sustainability and zero waste align perfectly with those of Six Senses. Believing a glass of wine a day is good for you, Marc had a glass of local port in hand while rosemary-scented coals glowed behind him. He loves to sing along to British pop and his go-to food is flatbread with mushrooms or pizza.
