Johannes King, the owner of the Michelin-starred Söl’ring Hof, will serve modern European cuisine paired with a selection of wines 500m out in the middle of the Indian Ocean at Niyama Private Islands' Edge restaurant.

King began his career at Franz Keller in Cologne specialising in French nouvelle cuisine. He then trained under master pastry chef Karl Schumacher at Vienna’s Konditorei Oberlaa. King relocated to Berlin to work at Henri Levy’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Maître, then joined the culinary team at the InterContinental in the upscale Tiergarten area.

The chef’s experiences at Hôtel de la Poste on the Côte D’Or inspired him to open his own destination restaurant in 2000. Söl’ring Hof on the island of Sylt commands two Michelin stars and 17 Gault Millau points. Gourmands make the pilgrimage to the island to taste King’s modern textures and light flavours in a surreal landscape.
