“There is no sincerer love than the love of food,” said the great George Bernard Shaw. Paying grand homage to the famous author’s adage, we put fun back into fine food with our Master Class on the appreciation of luxury fare. From the Coffin Bay King oyster and where it’s from to caviar - the royal to the regular and white and black truffles – the facts and the fiction, we give you the lowdown on Wagyu and Kobe and a whole host more. Join us on this epicurean adventure through the luxurious delicacies of the world. You may leave a few pounds heavier, but we assure you, you will leave magnums happier.
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well,” says Virginia Woolf. T’is true. For fun or for work, dining, hosting and entertaining speaks volumes about your character, breeding and business manner too. As corporates move from the boardroom to living rooms and negotiations are made at restaurants rather than offices – empowering yourself with knowledge on cultural nuance, social protocol and gracious entertaining has been statistically proven to build professional equity. So add that je ne sais quoi to how you dine and host with our one-of-a-kind Master Class, taught by the internationally renowned celebrity host, chef and food-enthusiast, Dalia Dogmoch Soubra.
Once upon a time, it was the drink of the royals. Today, it is still considered a pastime of the well-heeled. In the wise old words of Henry James, ‘There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as Afternoon Tea.’ We all attend tea parties but do we really know the etiquette of a proper Afternoon Tea? How to pronounce the word scone (correctly), what to start with – tea cake or sandwiches and the difference between Afternoon and High tea (yes, it’s a common error!); garner knowledge from our Master that the Queen herself would be impressed with, over a cup of tea - the proper way - at the Four Seasons Resort, Dubai.
