From the restaurant:

Open throughout the day, Cosmo takes guests on a refined journey through diverse culinary traditions from around the world. The menu reflects the chef’s passion for travel and new cultural experiences, while an underpinning of Southern Thai flavours pays homage to The Nai Harn’s rich Phuket heritage.

Cosmo offers a unique gastronomic experience in a paradisal setting. The flagship restaurant of the iconic Nai Harn, it occupies one of Phuket’s most coveted locations, a promontory flanking Nai Harn Bay. Featuring grey furnishings and geometric white décor, the dining area exudes space and airiness. Immediately below us, the sandy beach is framed by jagged rocks.

Executive Chef Mark Jones carefully explains the new menu. Recently appointed and with an impressive CV in high-end catering, he is rightly enthusiastic about a cuisine which reflects his passion both for global travel and culinary innovation. We begin in Northern Japan. Mark’s choice of appetiser is pan-fried Hokkaido scallops with apple ginger, and crispy coppa ham. The juicy shellfish are lightly seared, their succulence complemented by a delicate echo of apple. The main course, again ocean inspired, accentuates the Andaman Sea: moist White snapper steak, and matching croquette.

Other chef’s recommendations reveal a capacity for adventurous combinations. Marinated raw sea bass comes with pomelo, coriander, chili lemon, ginger and lotus root; Seared yellow fin tuna with greens, avocado, watermelon and ponzu citrus dressing. A Mixed grill of Andaman seafood includes the local catch of the day. Char-grilled cauliflower provides an inventive vegetarian option. For carnivores, Australian rib-eye steak with rissole potatoes and oyster mushrooms, rocket, asparagus, garlic and Béarnaise sauce admirably fits the bill. There are artisanal ice creams inspired by local fruits, and crisp organic salads.

The attention to detail is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Every dish is accompanied by exquisitely chosen vegetables and herbs with matching sauces and dips. Ingredients are ultra-fresh. Most of the seafood is purchased twice daily from Rawai fish market, and there is a stress on local, organic produce. The wide-ranging meats are created in the resort’s own charcuterie, even down to regional sausages.

Ingredients

    • 150g pumpkin
    • 90g almond cheese
    • 20g shitake mushroom
    • 40g enoki mushroom
    • 40g shimeji mushroom
    • 40g king rice bran oil
    • 40g pumace olive oil
    • 40g fresh lemon juice
    • a pinch of salt & pepper
    • 10g Thai watercress
    • 10g of rocket salad
    • 40g dried cherry tomatoes
    • 10g local leaf Buabok
    • 500g whole blanched almonds
    • 380g drinking water
    • 100ml fresh lemon juice
    • 14g garlic

Method

Soak almonds overnight in drinking water and next day place in blender. After blending, strain then transfer to kilner jar and seal, storing in refrigerator

If not using organic, soak all vegetables in drinking water with a teaspoon of baking soda 10 minutes then rinse in drinking water to remove pesticides. Cut tomatoes in half, season and then sprinkle with thyme and leave to dry in oven 70-degrees for four hours. Trim mushrooms and place in bowl with lemon juice and oils. Season with salt and freshly-ground black pepper then cut a thick slice of the side of the pumpkin with skin on and with a Japanese slicer, cut thin pieces off. Place a tablespoon of almond cheese inside and bring the pumpkin around so it makes a flower design. Spread the mushrooms attractively around the bowl and place the dried tomatoes. Place the raviolis on top of the mushrooms. Take the leaves and dress with the remaining juices from the mushrooms.

Set attractively around the bowl.
