Chef and Author Greg Malouf Announces Departure from Clé Dubai and Starts Working on his Eighth Book
Michelin-starred Chef and author Greg Malouf today announces his departure from Clé Dubai due to the expiration of his two-year contract. Clé Dubai is the first restaurant project of Malouf in the UAE.
“It is with regret that I announce my departure from Clé Dubai due to the expiration of my two-year contract. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the kitchen crew, service personnel, managers and owners for their constant support in raising awareness about Middle Eastern food. I would also like to thank the customers, suppliers, friends and family for the wonderful support. I will remain in Dubai researching book number 8 due out late 2017 and continue to lift the profile of contemporary Arabic food,” says Malouf.
Malouf is collaborating once again with former wife, Lucy, to write their eighth book, which he describes as an exploration of the food culture of Beirut. Greg and Lucy Malouf have co-created New Feast: Modern Middle Eastern Vegetarian (2014), Malouf: New Middle Eastern Food (2011), Saraban (2010), Turquoise (2007), Saha (2005), Moorish (2003), and Arabesque (1999).
Malouf has also been invited to host dinners and attend food festivals from across the world where he continues to showcase his unique brand of Middle Eastern cuisine. Malouf is also open to working on projects in Dubai, Singapore, London and Beirut.
Born in Melbourne to Lebanese parents, Malouf is widely regarded as the modern Middle Eastern master and has been a defining force on the international food scene for the last fifteen years. With seven best-selling and award-winning food and travel books to his name, Malouf’s food reflects a deep connection with his heritage as well as inspiration from his extensive travels around the Middle East.
