Last year, the price of oil dropped to $40 a barrel and since then life in the UAE has been a little boring. My big fat extravagant Abu Dhabi life changed overnight as companies cut budgets, friends left the country, and the expat mood as a whole turned a little sad. That was until my lucky day when an acquaintance reached out with a champagne and caviar event.
I was sitting on the sofa feeling sorry for myself reminiscing about all the good times I once had in my $100 a barrel life when I received an email from the Emirates Palace asking if I could attend a champagne and caviar event in two days.
We realize this is very short notice….but we really hope you can attend the ultimate caviar experience and become better acquainted with the world’s most renowned delicacy at our upcoming Amstur Caviar’s Masterclass event. Can we reserve a place for you? Oh, and by the way, the event will be hosted by Nick who just so happens to look like Justin Timberlake.
You had me at Justin. I mean….Nick. I will be there.
If you are like me caviar isn’t on the regular grocery list or for that matter not a regular on the dining out menu either. I had absolutely no experience with this delicacy so I had a lot to learn about caviar. If the AmStur Masterclass media event was a mini version of what’s in store for tomorrow’s Masterclass then you are definitely in for a treat. This high brow event is brought down to earth as Nick the caviar guru explains the differences between the caviar varieties, the company history, the farming process, and then provides simple instruction on how best to eat caviar. Plop it on your hand and lick it up. Yep, that’s the way it is done!
This event will definitely provide a James Bond in Monte Carlo roe eating and bubbly drinking experience as you might feel the need to wear something slinky. The extravagant Abu Dhabi life couldn’t get any better especially when the event includes a 4-course meal at Sayad — all of this for 450AED pp (plus taxes). So scratch your plans and give the Emirates Palace a call because this event is too unique and much too glamorous to pass up!
