We have been hosting a series of exciting and unique events during the month of June, some featuring renowned Chefs from all over the world.
On Friday June 10, Chef Eric Barbe – of the well-known truffle restaurant Bruno in the South of France – prepared a tasty four-course menu for black truffle lovers. The menu was paired with distinguished rosé wines from Château d’Esclans, including the remarkable Garrus 2008. I was very happy to see all Members enjoying themselves and that some even requested to park their cars at the Club overnight after sampling some fine wines.
On that same evening, at the Tropical Poolside “Family, Food & Friends” barbecue, the Australian celebrity chef and writer Kate Lamont introduced the best of her cuisine served with Australian Cape Mentelle wines.
Then, Sichuan Province was celebrated at Horizon restaurant from June 6 to 15 with two Chefs from our sister property, the Shangri-La Hotel, Chengdu. The restaurant’s bookings were full every day and many Members were delighted by the best of Sichuan specialities such as the stir-fried chicken with dried chili and Sichuan peppercorn and the marinated black fungus with chili and sweetened black vinegar sauce.
On June 15 and 16, Caffé Luna was visited by Italy’s “King of Pasta”, Vincenzo Spinosi, who introduced his special Pasta creations made with his own trademark Spinosi Pasta. The popularity of this enchanting evening has reinforced our wish to regularly promote the best of Italy at Caffé Luna.
To end, please allow me to recommend a visit to The Deck from June 24 to 28 to taste Morocco’s refined and diverse dishes prepared by our Guest Chef Mourad Noufel from Shangri-La Dubai.

So as two renovations come to an end, we commence a new and exciting project to upgrade both the male and female 3/F Health Club Jacuzzi, Steam Room and Sauna areas.
