World's first MasterChef restaurant is coming to Dubai
Dubai is already known as the foodie destination of the Middle East and there are celebrity chefs around every nook and cranny in the city.
Next up to make her Dubai debut is chef Maria ‘Margarita’ Vaamonde-Beggs who is going to head the entire kitchen set-up and menu creation at the world-first MasterChef, the TV Experience, at the new Millennium Place Marina, in Dubai in April.
Based on the hugely popular MasterChef reality television series, the restaurant will introduce a world-first dining experience to Dubai.
MasterChef, the TV Experience, will introduce guests to the talents and recipes of contestants and champions from various global series of MasterChef.
Margarita’s expertise spans 12 countries, including Venezuela, the USA and the UAE, with career highlights being relaunching of the Four-Season Hotels and Resorts Buenos Aires, Argentina; launching Catch Dubai as Sous Chef; transferring to Catch LA as Executive Sous Chef; and returning to Dubai as Executive Sous Chef for Morimoto to work alongside the legendary Masaharu Morimoto.
Guests arriving at MasterChef, the TV Experience, will instantly feel in familiar surroundings with the restaurant’s quasi ‘industrial’ interior design - complete with a dedicated drinks bar - inspired by the recognisable setting of the TV series. Food will be served on classic white ‘casual’ china with sturdy, yet lightweight, cutlery ensuring the focus remains firmly on food.
Contestants and champions from the worldwide series will share their stories and experiences with guests through signature dishes served during short-term residencies at the restaurant.
