BBC Good Food ME – 2018 August

Brunch for two

As temperatures soar in the region and we retreat indoors, here at BBC Good Food Middle East we’re bringing outdoor summer vibrancy inside the kitchen with beautiful summer ingredients and recipe ideas. Delight in dishes like charred asparagus, smoked salmon and shrimp with rye crumb, followed by cumin-crusted lamb with shallots, new potatoes and a side of salted mixed tomatoes – not forgetting a sweet ending of sugar-cured strawberries and white chocolate crumble, plus much more. Inside this issue, you’ll hear our thoughts on three of Dubai’s hottest tables – Hotel Cartagena at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, Kohantei at Dubai Opera – the region’s first-ever Japanese kaiseki restaurant, and Carnival by Tresind in DIFC. There’s also round-ups on where to watch the World Cup, enjoy great restaurant deals around Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well eateries serving up plant based, superfood-filled dishes.
