Held at @Inked, the creative dining space in Al Quoz, Dubai, diners were treated to a high-end five course menu, which focused on butter sauces – choosing green, black, red and yellow as the individual themed colours. Even the décor was carefully thought out, balancing golden hues to remind everybody of the colour of butter, in addition to the four colours of the dinner.
“The idea behind the event was to stress just how creative one can be when cooking with French butter. For instance, for this dinner, the Chef suggested different ways of savouring butter, whether it is served like a Maître d’Hôtel, noisette or monté. Dairy butter can literally enhance the flavours of any type of cuisine or indeed recipe,” said Laurent Damiens, chief operating officer, CNIEL – The French Dairy Board.
“This is particularly important in major cosmopolitan cities such as Dubai, home to over 3,38 million people from more than 200 different countries around the world, each with their own diverse tastes,” added Damiens.
