It is with great pleasure that we welcome back Christian Wiedenmann as Komandoo Maldives’ Executive Chef. In 2013 we waved goodbye to Chef Christian as he set off for Germany to continue his culinary journey; fast forward 8 years and he has returned to his home-away-from-home, Komandoo.
Christian’s introduction to the world of culinary arts began when he was just 16 years old, working at a hotel in his hometown, Bad Kreuznach in Germany and he went on to complete his Hotel Caravelle Diploma as Certified Chef in Culinary Arts in 1994. Since then he has gained three decades of experience, working at prestigious hotels, resorts and Michelin-starred restaurants across the globe including Ireland, the Philippines and the Maldives.
Known for his creatively-prepared dishes and unique interpretations of local and international recipes, Chef Christian follows the fine-tuned tradition of using only the finest local produce and the freshest ingredients. In his current role, he is in charge of all menu creation and culinary operations at Komandoo, from the main buffet restaurant, Falhu to our fine dining overwater restaurant, Aqua, and every other culinary experience on the island.
Get ready to enjoy the extraordinary and send your tastebuds on a journey never to be forgotten with Chef Christian and his team wowing you at every opportunity. Be sure not to miss the beach dinners, the Indian Ocean cuisine at Aqua with delicious fish and seafood dishes, and look out for Chef’s Table events and other exciting new culinary concepts by Chef Christian.
