Chef José Avillez is collaborating with the House of Dior to create a multi-sensory menu inspired by Maison Christian Dior’s most appreciated scents at his Tasca restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai.
The experience will see each course of the menu paired with the most favoured Christian Dior fragrances in the Gulf region: Gris Dior, Oud Rosewood, Oud Ispahan, Purple Oud, Ambre Nuit and the latest addition to the maison, Tobacolor.
Chef José Avillez worked closely with the maison to bring out the notes of each scent in the six-course menu, blending unique flavours to create dishes such as ‘Burnt Avocado Cocktail and Algarve Prawns’ and ‘Braised Red Mullet Scented with Basil Jam’. The menu will be available from March 25 to April 1.
“We are extremely excited to be able to collaborate with Maison Christian Dior to combine the vibrant dining experience Tasca is known for with one of the most renowned brands in fragrance,” said Chef José Avillez.
“Creating such a unique concept in dining will hopefully inspire people to see this as more than simply dining, but a true feast for the senses.”
Whether dining indoors with breath-taking skyline views or under the stars at the terrace, the exquisite menu will be served in a charming setting and inviting ambience.
The Maison Christian Dior x José Avillez Menu is available at Tasca exclusively for dinner and priced at AED600 per person, food only, with the option of pairing for AED350 per person.
