A single flavour can define a moment, a season, a destination. To weave a multitude of distinct flavours into a dish, and that into a menu which transports you on a gastronomic journey, is truly an art. Aman celebrates this art form with masterful simplicity, tuned in to the seasons and the abundance they offer, and placing the quality and freshness of ingredients and their ethical sourcing above all else.
The launch of new restaurants Nama and Arva in select locations worldwide represents the beginning of a significant new chapter for Aman in the world of gastronomy.
Paying tribute to Italy’s rich culinary heritage
Arva celebrates the robust flavours and simple ingredients of Italy’s cucina semplice culinary tradition, and the ingenuity required to tease out both the most powerful and delicate tastes from what is seasonally available. Arva pays tribute to this in its name, ‘cultivated land’ in Latin, and its ethos: the shared enjoyment of uncomplicated flavours in a welcoming and congenial atmosphere.
Celebrating Japan's tradition of culinary artistry
Nama offers exquisitely crafted sushi and sashimi at the heart of a menu celebrating Washoku, the UNESCO-celebrated ‘food of Japan’. Drawing its name from the Japanese word for ‘raw’, Nama is imbued with a strong sense of place, and serves simple yet sophisticated dishes that are true to the age-old preparation techniques of the Japanese kitchen.
Whether matsutake mushrooms picked in Bhutan’s forest glades or oysters plucked from the Andaman Sea, the finest produce and delicacies inform Aman’s menus across the globe.
Dumpling Making in Hangzhou
Symbolizing wealth due to their auspicious shape, dumplings are an integral part of the cuisine served during many Chinese holidays, and in particular the Spring Festival. Guests at Amanfayun can learn how to make ‘jiaozi’ or Chinese dumplings with the executive chefs at Fayun Place.
Khmer Banquets in Siem Reap
For special occasions, the 10th-century temple of Prasat Kravan, beautifully lit up, plays host to alfresco banquets. Magical evenings are accompanied by live musicians and dance performances, bringing to life the stone apsaras on the temple’s walls.
Beach Dining in Sri Lanka
Set amidst a coconut grove at the edge of the ocean, ginipandans – Sri Lankan oil torches – light a spectacular seafood barbecue under the stars. Those who are lucky may witness turtles emerging to lay their eggs during the evening.
