Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay has launched a new plant-based menu, 'Folia', at the hotel's Bay View Lounge - after its successful launch at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills in California last year.

The menu has been developed by chef Matthew Kenney - who has founded more than 30 vegan eateries worldwide - in partnership with KBW Ventures, founded by HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud.

Folia’s culinary selection includes 10 plant-based items including starters, entrées, and desserts, and will be available from March 15, 2019. The Folia menu will showcase a range of seasonal dishes such as watermelon poke, marinated in a flavourful ponzu lime broth; hearts of palm ceviche with cherry tomato, peewee potato and olives in a dijon vinaigrette; beet hummus with oregano cream; and dukkah avocado with spicy greens, preserved lemon and tomato jam. Entrees include green herb tacos filled with roasted squash and king oyster barbacoa, and wild mushroom sandwich with caramelised onions and truffle aioli. Dessert options include coconut cream pie and coco-berry mousse with hazelnut gelato.

"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,” said Prince Khaled, founder and CEO of KBW Ventures.

Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay general manager Richard Raab added: "At Four Seasons, we are always looking for fresh ways to innovate and create unique experiences for our guests. With increasing numbers of travellers 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 flavours of Folia’s plant-based cuisine.”
