The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has announced the return of the popular Food Forward series to kick off the much-awaited Abu Dhabi Culinary Season, with Michelin-starred Chef Anthony Demetre set to collaborate with the UAE’s Chef Faisal Naser at Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi.

London-based Demetre, the chef and owner of Wild Honey, famous for merging French culinary techniques with seasonal English produce, will partner with Chef Naser, who will infuse local heritage and Emirati-inspired flavours into the pair’s unique culinary exploration.

The pair’s main course includes Emirati fish and chips of battered fish marinated and spiced with Emirati masala, served with goose fat roasted potatoes, black garlic and tarmarind aioli and salona sofrito; slow roasted chicken lacquered with lemon and market vegetables and desserts including classic English custard tart with golden sultanas and more succulent ones.
