Folia, a celebrated range of plant-based fare, is a collaboration between internationally acclaimed Chef Matthew Kenney and Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed’s KBW Ventures
Discerning diners visiting Sintoho and Dai Forni at their stylish rooftop locations now have the opportunity to order from a thoughtfully curated plant-based menu, in addition to all their usual favourite dishes at the Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya. From September 1, the Hotel proudly becomes the latest partner of the Folia concept to showcase a menu of progressive plant-based cuisine that provides health-conscious patrons a range of clean, green, yet delicious menu options.
Folia, meaning “from the leaves” in Latin, was developed exclusively for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, and is the product of a partnership between internationally acclaimed chef Matthew Kenney and HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud’s KBW Ventures. Folia’s mission is to carry a vibrancy of flavour-profile and presentation to the plate using plant-based ingredients for starters, mains, and desserts courses.
“KBW Ventures is thrilled to see Folia so heartily welcomed by Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait, after the menu’s warm reception in neighboring UAE and Bahrain,” said HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud, founder and CEO of KBW Ventures, remarking on the launch.
Supporting the launch of Folia’s newest home at Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait will be an array of opportunities to engage the city’s knowledgeable dining community in experiencing the Folia menu with fun and interactive events in the coming weeks and months.
“The fourth Four Seasons property to present Folia, I’m especially pleased to see another GCC country partner up to present this delicious and healthy dining experience. Folia allows guests to choose the highest quality options in mindful dining out; we’re looking forward to seeing the social media activity from people in Kuwait City experiencing flavourful and hearty plant-based cuisine created by Chef Kenney,” Prince Khaled added.
Kuwait City becomes the latest destination to offer Kenney’s Folia menu and follows successful roll-outs at Four Seasons properties in Los Angeles, Dubai and Bahrain.
“I am excited to be launching these outstanding plant-based menus because it sends such a positive signal to our much-valued diners,” says Didier Jardin, who has been the General Manager of the property since its opening in 2017. “We have the privileged position of operating restaurants in a part of the world where our clientele is sophisticated and very aware of new trends in the dining industry, so it gives me great pride knowing that we are evolving our product to meet changing needs of our much-valued guests,” he explains.
“The Folia concept for Four Seasons is an incredibly exciting moment in the transition to a more sustainable future,” said Matthew Kenney of Folia’s presentation at the Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait. “Creating menus that are seamlessly interwoven into the fine-dining that already exists at the property is a project that we enjoy, and to be working with the team in Kuwait is a dream come true,” Chef Kenney concluded.
