Kamalaya’s Culinary Director Kai Mueller adds: “I always found it fascinating and exciting to learn from Karina and collaboratively develop tasty and satisfying dishes that follow the guidelines of ancient Asian healing traditions and current nutritional research. Food is such a powerful tool for healing and maintaining well being on all levels. For me, it’s really the dedication and talent of our team of kitchen and service hosts that add the special ‘Kamalaya flavour’ to our dishes and I’m truly grateful to see their enthusiasm recognised.”
