Hell's Kitchen chef descends on Dubai
Michelin-starred chef and television personality Angela Hartnett is set to delight Dubai diners next month, when she takes to the kitchen at Hilton Dubai Creek’s Verre by Gordon Ramsay restaurant.
Hartnett, who spear-headed the outlet’s launch in 2001, will return to guest-chef alongside executive chef Matt Pickop for two days only, to mark Verre’s eighth anniversary.
The visit on November 9-10 will see Ramsay protégé Hartnett join forces with Pickop to create a special anniversary menu, accented with her signature Italian touches.
“It’s been eight years since we launched Verre, Gordon’s first-ever international venture, and it holds a special place in all our hearts," said Hartnett.
"Gordon’s vision of Dubai was right on target: the city has blossomed into a culinary haven," she added.
"It gives me great pride to return to Verre, a restaurant that has truly made its mark, and of course Dubai — one of the most vibrant cities in the world."
Dubai's cooking enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to learn some Michelin-star style themselves, when Hartnett ruhosts a one-off culinary master-class, on November 10.
“Signature hospitality and off-the-cuff expertise from culinary masters Angela and Matt will give participants a rare opportunity to experience a celebrity chef demonstration, as well as a sit-down, three-course meal with a culinary idol,” a spokesperson for the restaurant said.
Hartnett currently oversees two of Gordon Ramsay’s award-winning restaurants in London: fine-dining Italian restaurant Murano, located in the heart of Mayfair, and the York and Albany, on the edge of London’s Regents Park.
She has become a household name through appearances on UK television shows such as Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Criminals.
Murano was recently awarded a Michelin star in the 2009 guide.
