Danish Thai chef in Arabian debut promotion
Abu Dhabi, November 11, 2013
A top Denmark-based chef is set to head a Thai restaurant promotion for the five-star Easter Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara, Abu Dhabi in February next year.
Henrik Yde-Andersen, the ‘Masterchef Denmark’ judge who owns and runs six restaurants in Denmark and is the man behind Bangkok’s Michelin-starred SraBua by KiimKiim restaurant, has singed up for the promotion as part of Gourmet Abu Dhabi culinary festival.
During his stay in Abu Dhabi, chef Henrik will introduce diners to his singular and much-acclaimed modern Thai cuisine style from February 5 to 8.
“Henrik is known for his theatrical deconstruction of Thai classics and this will be a rare opportunity for UAE residents and visitors to sample the creations of a man who has taken molecular Thai cuisine back to its source,” said Moritz Klein, general manager of the Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara.
“As a Thai brand which has played a significant role in exporting the popularity of Thai cuisine from its home base, we look forward to celebrating the mastery of a man who has lifted this particular culinary art to a whole new level.”
“A reputation for honouring a guest is something that Thailand shares with Arabia so it will be a great experience to celebrate Thai-style hospitality in a destination renowned for hospitality,” said chef Henrik.
Gourmet Abu Dhabi will run across the finest of the emirate’s restaurants from February 4 to 19 with a roll-call of some of the world’s greatest masterchefs and culinary experts.
“This is the first time a Danish chef has appeared on the Gourmet Abu Dhabi bill and is part of our continuous desire to introduce new personalities and cooking styles to our programme,” said Noura Al Dhaheri of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), which presents the festival.
“Thai cuisine has a big following in the UAE and the wider Gulf region and we can expect chef Henrik’s promotion to be a highlight of the festival.” - TradeArabia News Service
