Medieval Arab Cooking at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha

On 3rd and 4th of May, IDAM by Alain Ducasse hosted a medieval banqueting event, with an extensive menu drawn from over half a millennium of recipes from the medieval Arab culinary tradition, covering a geographical area from Muslim Spain (al-Andalus) to Baghdad.

The event was preceded by a guided tour in the Museum discussing various relevant cooking-related artefacts from its collections, after which guests were introduced to the menu and some of the more unusual ingredients.

A big thank you to everyone who helped make this such a resounding success: Susan Parker Leavy (Director of the MIA Library), Fabrice Rosso (Head Chef), Y. Godard (Director of F&B Operations and Commercial Leasing), J. Cheminade (Executive Chef), Mathieu Courtin (Food and Beverage Manager) and their teams!
