Locatelli unpacked: a meeting with Chef Giorgio in Dubaiopens in new window
IF YOU HAVE been a UAE resident for any amount of time, you'll most likely be aware of this chef's name above the door at his Atlantis The Palm restaurant, Ronda Locatelli. However, if you are a fine dining aficionado or even have a passing interest in major international cooking TV shows, you will feel on familiar terms with the Italian maestro. This was our experience as we greeted the 56-year-old at Ronda this week as he paid a visit to Dubai in order to run his expert eye on how the eatery was faring. Having watched Giorgio Locatelli's BBC exploits for almost two decades on shows including Italy Unpacked and more recently on Netflix's The Big Family Cooking Show, his off screen persona is thankfully as ebullient and enthusiastic as when the cameras are rolling. We approached our intimate meeting table where, upon peering up from his signature translucent-framed specs, the chef rose and outstretched a hand to shake ours with gusto. We sat and almost immediately had to launch into an IMDb page recital, ticking off his past television work we had enjoyed.
