Watching sunrise over the paddy fields of Bali, or with your toes washed over by the sea on the Copacabana Beach in Brazil. How about the balcony table in a Mediterranean town which cascades down a mountain side. Or all three, and so much more. Whatever your favourite foodie destination, the answer to ‘Where can I experience it?’ is closer than you think, as Abu Dhabi Culinary Season invites you to Travel Through Food. This summer, we’ll travel without crossing the borders, and shine a light on the incredibly diverse culinary scene right here in the UAE capital, to give you a taste of the world we all love. Through four season-long initiatives, Abu Dhabi is taking you to every corner of the globe and through every course and meal, from fancy breakfasts to trendy dinners, indulgent lunches and the sweetest of treats, Travel Through Food is your first class ticket to a unrivalled culinary destination. #TravelThroughFood
This year get ready to be taken on a gastronomical journey as Abu Dhabi’s best chefs create a range of mesmerising menus, highlighting the Capitals diverse culinary talent. Fine-dining establishments will be handpicked to showcase the best of Abu Dhabi’s dining scene.
Discover the inspiration and origins of the most popular dishes at some of Abu Dhabi’s best renowned restaurants, and sprinkle an extra layer of indulgence on top with a brilliant staycation at the five star hotel where it is located. These specially curated exclusive menus will let you travel through food on a journey back to the Head Chef’s childhood home kitchen, or to the fresh fields in which the ingredients were grown. It all adds up to the perfect summer experience.
To celebrate the most important meal of the day, the What’s On Big Brekkie Adventures takes diners on a global tour, serving some of the most amazing breakfast dishes from across the world. Think traditional Balinese breakfast bowls, Turkish Baklava brioche, or how about the iconic Italian breakfast pizza? Enjoy all of these, and much more from July 15 at select venues across town.
