On this week’s episode of Dubai Works, a business podcast for Smashi TV, we were joined by a true gastronomic encyclopedia, Michael Ellis, the Chief Culinary Office at Jumeirah Group.
Michael has occupied this role since 2018 having moved from Michelin Restaurant & Hotel Guides across Europe, Asia and the Americas, and oversees the Jumeirah Groups F&B operations across hotels & resorts for signature fine dining to family and more casual dining experiences.
On the show, Richard and Michael discuss Foodie Kids, a new initiative by Jumeirah Group, and Michael’s views on:
- Whether France are still culinary leaders
- The history of the Michelin Guide, how it started out
- The best meal he ever had – he has eaten in 1,500 Michelin Star Restaurants
- Social Media & Instagram Food Critics
