Multi-Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse brings his pioneering take on elevated French dining to AlUla.
Boasting an impressive collection of 20 Michelin stars, Alain Ducasse, a renowned chef of French origin now based in Monaco, stands as one of the world’s most accomplished culinary maestros. Nestled in a picturesque setting, his upcoming pop-up restaurant, Ducasse in AlUla, promises an exquisite and ephemeral oasis-to-table dining experience. Offering inventive twists on French cuisine, including dishes crafted exclusively for AlUla, the culinary venture also prioritizes sustainability.
Positioned in close proximity to the ancient heritage site of Jabal Ikmah, Ducasse in AlUla will be under the guidance of Alain Ducasse’s protégé, Afonso Salvação Barreto. This pop-up restaurant, set to debut this week as part of Winter at Tantora, will showcase plates of Saudi-inspired cuisine, artfully prepared with locally sourced ingredients from nearby farms.
The inspiration for Ducasse in AlUla stems from Chef Ducasse’s own visit to this dessert, where the enchanting oases and farms left an indelible mark on him. The pop-up’s menu, personally curated by Chef Ducasse, will celebrate the distinct flavors of AlUla, creating a unique gastronomic experience for visitors.
