Taking place from March 18 to 20 at the restaurant in Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, the two highly regarded chefs will create a special six-course set menu inspired by Al Saadi’s Emirati background but cooked in a contemporary way using French methods.
Al Saadi said: “This is in no way your traditional Emirati fare. Although our food is inspired by the cuisine from my home country, we’ll be using Western cooking methods and serving each course in a much more refined way. It’ll be my first time ever working with Daniel and I’m really looking forward to sharing the kitchen with him.”
Irvine, chef de cuisine at Ray’s Grill, also said: “The menu will showcase the high-quality food we serve at Ray’s Grill in a brand-new light. We’ll be using ingredients including tuna, lamb and locally caught fish and I am thoroughly looking forward to combining my culinary style with Khaled to create something brand new for the region.”
The six course dinners, which have very limited seating, will take place on 18th, 19th and 20th of March from 7pm until 10pm and will cost AED 395 per person, inclusive of select soft beverages.
