The capital will get its taste of the innovative concept, with fans able to experience a sizzling fusion of flavour and entertainment at Abu Dhabi Hill in the Yas Marina Circuit, over February 24 and 25. Alongside the culinary action, you can also enjoy cooking workshops, competitions, panel discussions and musical performances as the ground-breaking event marks a significant step in the UAE’s culinary history.
In an exclusive chat with What’s On, Steve had this to say: “We’ve never done it out here before. I’m going to bring a couple of real barbecue bad boys out to Abu Dhabi, and we’re going to do it the way we do it down south in Georgia, Iowa, Texas and Kansas City.”
His passion for barbecue, and the art of barbecuing, is evident. “Nobody does it the way they do it over there, and I’m going to bring the boys that know how to do it. It’s going to be a flavour you’ve never tasted before, and you’re going to love it.” “Barbecue in the States, in areas like South Carolina or Memphis, happens seven days a week, and you’re about to see why.”
A line up of highly-skilled fire chefs will descend on Abu Dhabi to introduce you to the rich traditions and unforgettable flavours of open-flame cooking, in a gastronomy masterclass inspired by Steve’s passion for the art of cooking over fire, as culinary traditions come to you from around the world.
Global culinary hub? Abu Dhabi is that, and so much more.
