Celebrated for serving authentic French cuisine in Qatar, Sel & Miel at The Ritz-Carlton, Doha, is considered one of the country’s most valued dining establishments. A magnet for culinary talent looking for the opportunity to showcase their gastronomic skill, the restaurant continues to impress with the appointment of Gary Richardson as Chef de Cuisine.

Committed to upholding the qualities of classic French cooking, Sel & Miel has developed a unique concept that blends traditional methods with modern interpretations. The new Chef de Cuisine, South-African born, Gary Richardson, is perfectly suited to develop the offering and brings a wealth of experience to the role. Having worked in fine-dining venues throughout Europe, most notably the acclaimed Daylesford Organic in England, Gary’s passion for the farm-to-table philosophy is well-honed. His recent stint back home in South Africa saw him heading up the kitchens for two eminent wine estates, before moving to Qatar as Head Chef.

Speaking of his new role, Gary said:

I have always held classical cooking in the highest esteem and consider French cuisine to be the pinnacle of culinary arts. I’m so excited to take on the role of Chef de Cuisine at Sel & Miel, Doha, and I share a natural affinity with the restaurant’s dedication to crafting homemade dishes. My style of cooking is all about simple ingredients and bold flavours – a philosophy I’m delighted to apply to Sel & Miel’s exciting menu of modern classics.

A French brasserie in the heart of Doha, stepping into Sel & Miel transports guests to the streets of Paris. Traditional bistro-style brass topped tables, wicker chairs, gold-mirrored bar and continental music, combine chic charm with modern appeal, while the menu of elevated dishes delights tastebuds and stirs nostalgia. Open from noon until midnight, the restaurant is where refined continental dining and seamless service, meets Qatar’s vibrant social scene.

A rich addition to The Ritz-Carlton, Doha’s wonderful collection of restaurants, Sel & Miel is steadfast in its commitment to quality French dining. Appointing fresh culinary talent like Gary  to the team, enables the restaurant to expand its gastronomic prowess and undeniable appeal.
