Fancy dining “underwater”? Michelin-starred chef Stéphane Buron is joining forces with Atlantis’ Grégoire Berger for a nine-course underwater extravaganza tonight (Thursday November 23).
The “Four Hands” feast is being knocked up by the world-class chefs as part of Atlantis, The Palm’s culinary month, at the hotel’s mesmerising Ossiano restaurant, facing onto the Ambassador Lagoon with its 65,000 marine species. The dinner will take place tonight and tomorrow (Fri 24) and will cost Dhs895 per person.
Diners will be able to get stuck into the finest produce from land and sea with dishes including organic warm leek and Gillardeau oyster served with tartar, North Sea Langoustine with smoked leek and goose, seared Fois Gras with beetroot, French pigeon with carrot and caramel sauce and Gregoire’s signature dish, the rainbow trout ‘Floating Island’ with cauliflower royale, caviar and dill.
For dessert, the luxurious Beaufort cheese is served with a quail egg, croutons and truffle, followed by a chestnut Mont Blanc macaroon with light mascarpone cream and a citrus pie served with passion fruit, yuzu and meringue.
Two Michelin-starred chef, Stéphane Buron, of Le Chabichou in Courchevel, bears the much coveted Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, the highest and most prestigious award amongst all professional craftsmen in France.
He will be joined by esteemed Chef de Cuisine Grégoire Berger, who was recently named tenth best chef in the world, at The Best Chef Awards.
We’ve heard that too many cooks spoil the broth, but four culinary hands are definitely better than two – especially when they’re this masterful.
