Norway’s Only Three-Michelin-Star Restaurant Will Debut In Dubai

Chef Gregoire Berger kicks off his 2023 season of world-class culinary collaborations this February with the three Michelin Star, Maaemo, helmed and owned by one of the world’s most celebrated chefs, Esben Holmboe Bang. The collaboration is part of the Dubai World Cuisine movement – a new chef-driven movement launched by Gulfood that aims to provide a platform for UAE-based chefs to collaboratively shape the cultural identity of Dubai, and further establish the city as a global culinary capital.

As one of the world’s most northerly Michelin-Starred restaurants and an experience many believe to be truly once in a lifetime, Maaemo was awarded its third Michelin star in 2016, making Chef Esben one of the youngest chefs and the first in Norway to front a restaurant holding Michelin’s highest accolade.

Taking place for one night only, on Thursday 23rd February, the first in the 2023 series of Ossiano’s world-class collaborations will see the two leading culinary talents unite to serve an unforgettable 10-wave menu priced at AED 1,500 per person. Titled “North” the duo’s tasting menu will feature the best produce from the ocean and land, focusing on natural flavours and seasonal, raw ingredients from a fusion of the best French and Norwegian producers in the world.

The immersive journey, focusing on a story specially crafted by the creative duo and interpreted through the culinary lens of each chef, will feature oceanic-inspired dishes from Chef Berger, including plankton and a marinated scallop pearl. Whilst Chef Esben’s interpretations (and globally celebrated signatures) include a gently cooked king crab shoulder paired with a chilled broth of smoked reindeer heart, caviar Maeemo selection with hazelnut and buckwheat and lightly steamed Skrei with salted butter, seaweed marmalade and sauce of roasted chicken and marigold.

Chef Gregoire Berger X Chef Esben Holmboe Bang will take place on Thursday 23rd February from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.  The menu is priced at AED 1,500 per person.  Seating is extremely limited, and early reservations are highly recommended.
