Traditional Arabian delights with a modern international twist
February 28, 2016, 1:31 pm

Dean & Deluca, Kuwait’s gourmet café, has launched the ‘Taste of Arabia’- an exclusive all-day menu featuring classic Arabian dishes with a modern international twist. The launch coincides with Kuwait’s celebration of National and Liberation days and pays tribute to local and regional food traditions.

Available from 23 February to 9 April, Taste of Arabia features dishes that will be made with premium quality ingredients sourced from around the region and prepared by experienced chefs. This seasonal menu pays tribute to Dean & Deluca’s presence in Kuwait and the café’s first location in the Middle East.

The highlights of the new menu include an all-Arabian breakfast of Hommous Fatteh – slow-braised chickpeas on a bed of baked Arabic bread, laced with smoothed hommous and topped with pine nuts - and the classic Arabic Style Baked Eggs, with homemade soujouk and roasted tomatoes.

No Arabian meal is complete without Cheese Sambosa, stuffed with Dean & Deluca’s special cheese mixed with black sesame seeds; or the Arabic Style Cheese & Meat Arayes, seasoned with a unique combination of spices and topped with tomato and cheese.

Diners can also enjoy the Kuwaiti classic Chicken Majbous, slow-cooked to perfection and served on a bed of saffron-flavored rice, or a contemporary Prawn Hamsa Taco, topped with avocado and served with a side of sour cream, shredded cheese, pickled jalapeno, and mabouj. Guests can also relish the Jambalaya, cooked in dill, turmeric, tomato, and served with saffron-flavored rice.

For the perfectly sweet ending to a meal, dessert lovers will be delighted by the Taste of Arabia’s dense and creamy Date Cheesecake covered with caramel, or Rice Pudding & Orange Jelly “Moubaten”, flavored with rose and orange blossom water.

For almost 40 years, Dean & Deluca has made it their mission to provide the world’s best epicurean treats for cooking, eating and entertaining. Committed to a quest for excellence, the chefs continue to innovate and celebrate sumptuous food with the introduction of fresh and uplifting menus aimed to inspire food lovers everywhere.
