Kizmet to host Scandinavian cuisine pop-up in Dubai
Danish chefs who have previously worked at Noma are set to land in Dubai to bring the flavours of Scandinavia to Kizmet.
Part two of a dinner series named The Opposite Kitchen, ‘The Nordic Feast’ will run from March 5-9 at Kizmet, and will enable guests to experience authentic Scandinavian cuisine.
Kizmet Dubai owner Andre Gerschel has once again partnered with Enayat Safi, a Copenhagen-based food entrepreneur originally from Afghanistan, and Danish chef, William Milsted, to bring The Opposite Kitchen to Dubai. The trio first launched this dinner series last June during Ramadan in Copenhagen.
The five-day pop-up event at Kizmet will host young chefs from Denmark who have previously worked at Noma, and will offer 15 dishes that bring all the flavours of Scandinavia, whilst adding nuances of the Middle East.
Arabic flavours will still be a part of the menu with Krebbinet, a minced veal dish with pickled, crispy & creamy potatoes, but Nordic classics are at the forefront for this limited time menu. Guests can get a taste of Danish fare such as: sea bass smørrebrød, local pan-fried sea bass a top rye bread, finished off with remoulade, fennel and juicy capers; smoked mackerel salad with raw and grilled fennel, daikon, apple, rye crackers and finished off with a dill vinaigrette; and a Nordic beef tartare with mustard mushrooms, barley, nutmeg and garlic spinach.
Desserts will include a Nordic strawberry cake or the buttermilk Koldskål, a kammerjunker tuile with lemon sorbet, orange buttermilk and tarragon oil.
From March 5-9, and available for lunch and dinner service, The Nordic Feast will be taking over Kizmet’s regular a la carte menu and will also offer a tasting menu. Prices start at AED 35 and reservations are required.
Kizmet’s regular menu will not be available during this time, except for the breakfast menu on the weekend.
