At.mosphere to welcome Michelin-starred chef
Michelin-starred French chef Hélène Darroze is to showcase her culinary skills in Dubai with a three-day residency at At.mosphere, the world’s highest restaurant.
From April 28 to 30, Darroze will work in partnership with executive chef Jitin Joshi at the restaurant, which is located on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa.
She will draw on both her southwestern French heritage and influences from her London and Moscow restaurants, and create two degustation menus for lunch and dinner.
“I’m in the business of happiness and am rooted in tradition, so my philosophy is to create dishes that are dear to me, and which I hope will be dear to my guests,” said Darroze.
"Wherever they dine under my name, they will savour dishes that incorporate emotion, authenticity, and creativity.”
Darroze has won Michelin stars for her restaurants in Paris and London, while her most recent venture was Raff House, a boutique and fine dining destination in Moscow.
“For Dubai diners my emphasis will, as always, be on presenting exceptional quality ingredients with a native southwestern French influence,” she added.
“The region’s cuisine and geography are incredibly diverse, extending from Charentes to the Spanish Basque country, and I am looking forward to bringing a taste of my tradition to the Middle East, but delivered from a thoroughly modern perspective.”
