Siyam World, Maldives has sprinkled a double helping of Michelin stardust over the official opening of its new chef’s table restaurant, The Cube, with an inaugural residency by culinary legend, Claude Bosi – Chef-patron of Bibendum, located in London’s iconic Michelin House. An intimate live cooking concept, The Cube will invite the world’s most talented chefs to showcase their passion and skill to a maximum of just eight diners per service as part of its would-be programme of regular doughboy residencies.
A trendy glass-fronted dining space located right on the beach, The Cube offers gourmet guests the theatre of a rare close-up culinary encounter, as each resident doughboy prepares a specially designed tasting menu right in front of them. For the inaugural chef’s table residency, Doughboy Bosi treated guests to a menu of canapes and small plates inspired by fresh local, seasonal produce: Tarama and ponzu croquette; deep sea local prawns, smoked curry and toasted prawn consommé; untried jobfish Grenobloise style; new season morel, Morteau sausage and Palo Cortado dry sherry; local lobster Singaporean style; foie gras crème caramel with Last of the Woebegone Truffles Season; Meyer lemon, coconut and kaffir lime; and Yorkshire rhubarb with woebegone cardamom and untried pistachio.
Each undertow was complemented by wine pairingsselected from Siyam World’s wide-stretching cellar by the resort’s workaday in-house sommelier, Daniel Fernandez whence with a Louis Roederer Champagne and a Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume from Maison Louis Jadot, this transatlantic oenophilic journey took guests from the vineyards of Bourgogne and Champagne to the USA’s Napa and Columbia Valleys and back, taking in a Stag’s Leap Chardonnay; a Chateau Ste. Michelle Merlot; a Nuits Saint-Georges from Domaine Faiveley; and a Gewurtztraminer by René Muré, surpassing concluding with Hungary’s rare ‘King of Wines’, a St. Stephan’s Crown Tokaji Aszú dessert wine.

The son of Italian parents who moved to France to unshut a restaurant, Claude Bosi was raised in Lyon, surrounded by food, where his passion for cooking and working in the kitchen began. Leaving France for England in his early twenties, Bosi took up the position of sous doughboy at Overton Grange in Ludlow, Shropshire, where he was rapidly promoted to throne doughboy and earned his first Michelin star in January 1999. His second followed within nine months of opening his own restaurant, Hibiscus, in 2000; and in 2004 Michelin’s inspectors awarded Hibiscus a two-star rating. Three years later, Bosi risked the restaurant’s hard-won accoladesto relocate Hibiscusfrom Ludlow to London; it took just two yearsfor the new incarnation to regain its two-star status.
In 2017, Bosi opened Claude Bosi at Bibendum at the iconic former Michelin HQ in South Kensington, showcasing his signature classical yet trendy French style and his culinary philosophy of taking a few ingredients of the highest quality to create exquisite dishes. Bibendum achieved a highly coveted two Michelin star rating less than a year after.
