Nobu, Cooking Class
Greetings to all of you! We hope the year of 2017 started off well for all of you around the world. Have you ever participated in a cooking class? We have tried several ones over the last years and all of them were great fun.
Our most recent experience, at the wonderful Nobu, located in the Atlantis Dubai, however, was one of the greatest experiences ever. This is why we would like to share it with all of you who:
- are looking for a great gift
- are looking for a high-class team outing or simply
- great food and a great experience
The Nobu is known for its fine-dining Japanese cuisine as well as for its stunning service and amazing atmosphere. Arriving at the Nobu on a Saturday noon and participating in a fine-dining cooking class, however, takes the Nobu experience to a whole new level.
We booked (about 1 month prior to our desired event date) for the 2 of us and paid around AED 3,000 (which is nothing for what we received in return) in total. Initially, we thought that we would just go there, cook a few dishes and leave again; this, however, was not the case. The cooking classes are for 6 people at once, this is why we were grouped with 2 other couples and accompanied by 1 chef each.
Upon the arrival, we were greeted by the lovely and super-energetic restaurant manager, from the States. He welcomed us to ”his” restaurant and offered us a round of coffee t o start with. We waited for the other couples to arrive, bonded a little bit and right away received our super classy, black aprons. We were then greeted by the other chefs and started with a round of home-made sushi and maki. The sticky rice was everywhere, and the eyes were burning from all the Wasabi we put on top of our creations.
The sushi and maki experience was followed by a trip to the restaurant’s main kitchen where we prepared the mis en place for lobster, grilled with asparagus, Shitake mushrooms, and dried-tuna-infused rice wine. It was one of the chef’s birthday, this is why the restaurant manager decided to open a bottle of Champagne, which bubbled-and sparkled up our overall experience even more. The lobster was followed by the signature dessert: chocolate fondant with green tea ice cream! We obviously had to try every single dish we prepared and were super stuffed and happy already when the Nobu-team invited us to a 6-course lunch accompanied by a Sake-tasting and more drinks.
What an experience; what amazing service, and guidance from the chefs, and what a fun group to share this experience with.
We had such a great day and afternoon and can only recommend to book one of Nobu’s cooking classes and experience it for yourself. We loved every minute of it and want to thank the team for an unforgettable day, SE.
