In addition to the chef’s table, the full three-course a la carte menu will be available at AED395 per person. The chef’s table is designed for groups of four or more, is priced at AED695 (around $190) per person.
In his interview with Time Out Dubai I loved his reply to their last question:
What’s your top pastime away from the kitchen?
‘Diving. No blackberry, no emails, no chefs, no menu, no food critics – just me and the sound of my heartbeat.’
Scottish by birth, Gordon was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, from the age of five. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management.
Ramsay’s first years in the kitchen were spent training under culinary luminaries such as Marco Pierre White and Albert Roux in London, after which he moved to France where he worked in the kitchens of Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon for three years where he was able to enhance his expertise in classic French cooking. In 1993, Gordon became chef of the newly opened Aubergine, within three years the restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars.
He has been awarded a total of 12 Michelin Stars and, in 2001, became one of only three chefs in the United Kingdom to hold three Michelin stars at one time; only Joël Robuchon and Alain Ducasse have been awarded more.
Ramsay is known for presenting TV programs about competitive cookery and food, such as the British Series Hell’s Kitchen, The F Word, and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, along with the U.S. versions of Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, and MasterChef.
