JEN Maldives Malè by Shangri-La introduces the first of its little chefs in the making classes with the Master Chefs at JEN. The first classes were held during the weekend of 7 to 8 August 2021 at JEN Maldives Malè by Shangri-La.  

With experienced chefs from around the world under one roof, JEN continues to be recognised locally and globally as one of the city’s prime dining outlets. Extending the experience to nurture the curiosity of younger generations about food and the culinary arts the chefs’ team have created a series of fun hands-on classes for the little chefs, allowing the children to learn valuable skills in a safe environment and teaching them the basics, starting from proper hand washing.  

The first weekend class was dedicated to children who love pizza, as pizza-making is always a winner with people. Mr. Prabu Vijayan and his team taught the little ones how to make dough with the correct measurements of ingredients and gave them a chance to stretch their own dough, add toppings, then they could watch it bubble to perfection in the pizza ovens. The freshly-baked pizzas were finally taken home to be enjoyed with the family.  

The children were accompanied by their parents during these sessions and the cooking class was certainly a successful start. “We certainly will conduct more cooking classes over the coming months and this great start is just the beginning,” said the Chef de cuisine, Mr. Prabu Vijayan.

As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility JEN works with the community and this was in conjunction with International Youth Day 2021, themed as ‘Transforming food systems, youth innovation’.  

Shangri-La and its properties are well known for their part in Corporate Social Responsibility and raising awareness and contributing and conducting initiatives and awareness programmes every year for their guests, staff and for society.
