Enjoy A Vegan Set Menu With Giorgio Locatelli At Atlantis, The Palm For One Night Only

Try Dubai’s biggest vegan menu and meet the legendary chef this February

In partnership with Ronda Locatelli at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai Vegan Days is offering culinary aficionados the chance to try the stunning set vegan menu, hosted by the Michelin starred chef himself, on Sunday 10th February. Giorgio Locatelli has shared his personal selection of dishes, from what is now being heralded as the city’s largest vegan friendly menu, to create this bespoke experience for just AED 150 per person.

Guests can choose from a choice of three starters, wood-oven baked vegan pizzas and a delicious chocolate avocado mousse dessert. Located within The Avenues of Atlantis, The Palm, Ronda Locatelli brings traditional Italian flavours to Dubai, now the award-winning restaurant is offering a new vegan menu, with more than 40 dishes - making it the largest offering from a standalone non-vegan restaurant in the city helmed by Chef de Cuisine, Salvo Sardo.

Starters on offer are baby spinach with pomegranate dressing, vegan cheese and walnuts; handmade tagliatelle pasta with porcini mushrooms, and a spicy carrot salad with green apple and roasted almonds.

Next up, guests can choose from one of four wood-oven baked vegan pizzas – prepared daily with homemade dough, fermented for a minimum of 48 hours to ensure unbelievable taste and texture. The restaurant’s vegan mozzarella is made from a blend of soya and coconut milk, and produced locally in the neighbouring Emirate, Ras Al Khaimah.

Traditionalists will enjoy the classic margherita, with homemade Sardinian tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil, while the funghi offers the same divine dough, sensuous sauce, vegan mozzarella and mushrooms.

Choose a positano pizza for a white sauce pizza with mozzarella cheese, black olives, cherry tomatoes and rocket, or go full tilt with the vegetariana, which includes that signature sauce as well as mozzarella, aubergines, peppers, onions and courgettes. The evening in the stunning restaurant will be rounded off with a mousse al cioccolato - avocado chocolate mousse.

Diners will also have the chance to discuss the menu and Locatelli’s relentless search for the best ingredients with the man himself, who now holds the Commendatore OMRI for services to Italian gastronomy, the equivalent of a British knighthood. The renowned chef recently became a judge of MasterChef Italia, and consistently ranks among Italy’s top ten chefs.

Will Rankin, co-founder of Dubai Vegan Days, says: “When a chef as famous, charismatic and passionate as Locatelli realises there’s an unstoppable movement towards veganism, you realise it’s reaching a tipping point. We can’t wait to try his brigade’s veganised Italian classics. This is a cuisine renowned for cream, cheese, eggs and butter. This menu is also testament to the fact that any cuisine can be made cruelty and meat free.”
