You’ve probably seen Chef Josh Niland on TV in Masterchef Australia and gawped open-mouthed at his fin-tastic ability to use every part of a fish for cooking and make it disappear. Now, you can treat yourself to his unique gill-to-fin culinary approach right here in Dubai this weekend.
For two nights only on September 23 and 24, the renowned Sydneysider chef and restaurateur and Ossiano’s head chef Grégoire Berger are teaming up to host a four-hands dinner at Atlantis, The Palm. Therefore, you won’t have to schlep all the way to Sydney to dine at one of his pioneering seafood restaurants.
What will the ‘Grégoire Berger x Josh Niland’ menu include?
Josh Niland is the only Aussie chef to make it into the prestigious World’s Top 100 Chefs list. And Chef Berger is the award-winning visionary behind Dubai’s Michelin-star underwater eatery Ossiano. So, as far as foodie math goes, adding the two of them equals a mind-blowing gourmet experience.
Set against the serene backdrop of Ossiano’s Ambassador Lagoon aquarium, this 10-course dinner will showcase both chefs’ commitment to sustainability and reducing food waste.
That translates to a menu crafted from fish parts typically considered gross. Yep, the stuff most of us scrunch up our noses at in disgust will be transformed into lip-smacking delights. Dishes such as jerk turbot head and fisheye ice cream will shock and awe.
