Foodies can now reserve a seat at the Chef’s Table and reserve a slot for Dinner in the Sky
Visitors can cook and dine with Nobu’s Andrew Bozoki, Indian celebrity Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, and Queen of the Arabian Kitchen, Chef Manal Al Alem
As chefs around the country prepare to show off their culinary mastery for the 8th edition of Qatar International Food Festival (QIFF), foodies and diners looking for special experiences can now book their seats at the festival’s most exclusive dining experiences via the participating hotels’ usual reservation platforms.
The special experiences for which advanced booking is recommended include the all-new QIFF Chef’s Table series and the returning festival favourite, Dinner in the Sky, brought to visitors by Four Seasons Hotel Doha.
Dinner in the Sky allows diners to enjoy a scrumptious three-course meal while enjoying a light spring breeze and elevated vistas of Doha. Throughout the festival, the 22-seater table will take its perch in the sky every hour (between 4 pm and 9 pm on weekdays and between 4 pm and 10 pm on weekends), for 45 minutes at a time. Tickets are for QAR 500 per person and will be sold at the festival grounds.
Meanwhile, the series of Chef’s Table events will be held at select five-star hotel restaurants, giving residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy special live cooking and dining experiences with internationally-acclaimed chefs such as Nobu’s Chef de Cuisine Andrew Bozoki, Indian celebrity Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, and Jordanian Chef Manal Al Alem, known as the Queen of Arabian Kitchen. The events will offer diners exclusive access to their favourite renowned chef, giving them rare glimpses into their cooking rituals and a seat on the dish’s journey from raw ingredients to decorated plates. There are 12 – 20 seats available per table and cost per person ranges from QAR 280 – 1,500.
Mashal Shahbik, Director of Festivals and Tourism Events at Qatar Tourism Authority said that QIFF is celebrating Qatar’s growing repertoire of fine dining experiences by offering activities both at the festival grounds and at participating hotels and restaurants. He was also particularly pleased to welcome The Four Seasons Hotel Doha who came on board this year as host of Dinner in the Sky and the inaugural Chef’s Table.
Other hotels participating in the QIFF Chef’s Table include Marsa-Malaz Kempinski, the Pearl – Doha, St Regis-Doha, Melia Doha, Doha Marriott Hotel, Sharq Village & Spa Doha, and Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel.
