On 8 August 2014, Alila Villas Soori will host an exclusive dining experience crafted by Kiwi chef Matt Lambert.

Online PR News – 29-July-2014 – Bali, Indonesia – On 8 August 2014, Alila Villas Soori will host an exclusive dining experience crafted by Kiwi chef Matt Lambert, the culinary talent behind New York’s Michelin-starred The Musket Room.

Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, Lambert knew from a young age that he wanted to be a chef. Working at a Michelin-starred restaurant in New York City was always a goal, so after two years at John’s Café in Woodbury, Connecticut, he took up a position at PUBLIC, a one-Michelin-starred restaurant owned by the AvroKO group. He continued to rise through the ranks, working at other high-profile establishments within the group, including Saxon + Parole. During his years with AvroKO, Lambert had the opportunity to compete on the reality cooking show “Chopped” on the Food Network. He emerged the winner and received a consulting position with Nestle.

In June 2013, Lambert took his New York dream a step further, opening The Musket Room together with his wife, bringing modern New Zealand cuisine to Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood. The restaurant immediately began making its mark, taking New York’s culinary scene by storm and earning a Michelin star just four months after opening – the youngest ever New York restaurant to receive a star.

Guests at Alila Villas Soori can look forward to savoring Lambert’s modern take on classic New Zealand &New York city dining with flavours in a menu featuring some interpretations of his award winning menu, accompanied by a selection of New Zealand wines.
