Bahrain’s first fine dining degustation restaurant Mahonia is launching a series of ‘four-hands dinners’ in collaboration with chefs from the World’s Top 50 list.
A number of chefs are lined up to work alongside Mahonia’s executive chef Herve Pronzato to create the special experience, with Jorge Vallego of the world’s number 11 restaurant Quintoill in Mexico the first to make the trip to Bahrain on February 3-4.
Mahonia’s owner, Sawsan Baluch, explains: “Mahonia is proud to be the first restaurant in Bahrain to present chefs from the World’s 50 Best Restaurants to the kingdom. As a restaurateur, the ‘four-hands dinner' concept is a wonderful way to offer something novel and exciting for our regulars, as well as introduce Mahonia to new dining audiences. When local food connoisseurs want to experience world-class haute cuisine, there’s no need to travel to Europe or anywhere else, they can experience it right here in Bahrain as we bring the best global cuisine and chefs to Mahonia. We select chefs who share the same cooking philosophy with us, which is to surprise and broaden the culinary horizons of our guests by combining the best and purest ingredients with the finest global gastronomic techniques.”
Baluch, who featured in the July issue of Caterer Middle East, is keen to take Mahonia to new levels of gastronomic delight, and the first event with Vallejo will include a 10-course culinary exploration with exclusive beverage pairings by Mahonia’s own sommelier.
