CHEESE MASTER, GÉRARD POULARD PRESENTS A SPECIAL EXTRAVAGANZA AT ROSSO, AMWAJ ROTANA, DUBAI
Amwaj Rotana Reveals the World of French Cheese with Maître Fromagier, Gerard Poulard
Dubai, September 15, 2013 – One of the many prides of France, cheese is not something to be taken lightly. And that is exactly what Gérard Poulard, Cheese Master, will be sharing with guests at Amwaj Rotana on the 8th and 9th of October.
A native of France itself, Gérard, shares that his home country can boast of more than 2,000 different varieties of cheese and France applies a system called Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC), which means “controlled designation of origin” in order to protect the authenticity of its cheese.
Having travelled the world to share his passion for the subject, Gérard, has an educated palate such that he can identify the type of cow that produced the milk for a particular type of cheese, as well as whether it has been made from sheep or goat’s milk.
To cement his knowledge, he has won numerous awards for his expertise, including The Order of Agricultural Merit, the Cordon Bleu France, and the Prosper Montagné from Quality House.
And now, on his visit to Amwaj Rotana, Gérard will give a unique presentation of 75 cheeses paired with a selection of French wines at Rosso. The hotel invites guests to a novel and inventive evening to savour a cheese buffet at only AED 195 paired with regular wines and AED 245 paired with premium wines.
