After spending over a decade helping carve out Dubai’s culinary scene, acclaimed chef Scott Price is leaving the city to head back to the UK – and doing something very special to bid us farewell. In recognition of his 11 years in the UAE, he will commemorate his last service at folly by Nick & Scott with a five-course tasting menu on July 14. Selecting his favourite dishes from his time at Table 9, Taste Kitchen, and (of course) folly by Nick & Scott, Scott will treat diners to the likes of quinoa with beetroot and horseradish, Peking quail with parsnips, sirloin of beef with mushrooms à la crème, and a sweet finish in the form of hazelnut, vanilla, and salted caramel – each paired with the chef’s favourite tipple.
The menu is priced AED 595 per person. To book, call 04 430 8535 or e-mail [email protected].
