Collaboration success

“I am thrilled to present Folia at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay in collaboration with my partner Chef Matthew Kenney. Building on the success of our first collaborative effort at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, it gives me immense pride to launch Folia in the Kingdom of Bahrain as our premier Middle East destination,” Prince Khaled, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, KBW Ventures, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“Chef Kenney’s ingenuity at crafting cuisine positions the menu’s selection as attractive to all diners. The concept, dedicated to guests looking to experience an array of quality healthy choices, demonstrated immediate success shortly after its launch in California.

“Now, KBW Ventures is proud to share Chef Kenney’s selection in Manama, allowing visitors to Four Seasons from all over the Gulf to choose delicious and considered dining through Folia.”

Food innovation

“At Four Seasons, we are always looking for fresh ways to innovate and create unique experiences for our guests,” Richard Raab, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, added. “With increasing numbers of travelers seeking to adopt a healthier lifestyle, the appeal of plant-based cuisine has never been stronger.

“In addition to providing outstanding fine dining for our vegan guests, this new menu will also offer a delightful surprise for those unfamiliar with the tremendous array of dishes available in the plant-based world – particularly when a master chef is at the helm.

“We are excited to bring Matthew Kenney’s vision of healthy eating to life here in Bahrain, and look forward to introducing our guests to the many flavors of Folia’s plant-based cuisine.”

The menu will launch at the Hotel’s Bay View Lounge from March 15. It follows Folia’s successful introduction at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills in California last year.
