We rolled out the red carpet at the beachfront Falcon Lawn of the five-star Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, for the Gala Opening of this year’s Gourmet Abu Dhabi – our annual culinary festival which runs across more than 20 of the UAE capital’s finest restaurants until February 19.

The opening saw the Chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), HE Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, welcome nine of the event’s star-studded masterchef cast – the USA’s Christopher Kostow; Italy’s Marco Sacco; South Korea’s Edward Kwon; Australia’s Russell Blaikie; Denmark’s Henrik Yde Andersen; Britain’s Michael Caines; India’s Sanjeev Kapoor; French master patissier, Fabrice David and the UAE’s very own celebrity Chef Khulood Atiq.

The culinary line up delivered a ‘hats off’ salute to the event which has been ranked by the Sydney Morning Herald metropaper as amongst the world’s Top Six gourmet festivals.

Guests got the chance to savour the creativity of Abu Dhabi’s own hospitality stars with food stations from Gourmet Abu Dhabi hosting venues and chefs from: The Forge, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal; 18° Hyatt Capital Gate, Abu Dhabi; Teatro, Park Rotana Abu Dhabi; Blue Grill, Yas Island Rotana Abu Dhabi; Pachaylen, Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara; Brasserie Angélique, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Abu Dhabi; Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor, Café D’Alsace by Royal Catering and The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort.
