The selections of sandwiches and sweets was overwhelming, but I think we did so some serious damage!
Here is Gary himself, putting the finishing touches to the perfect display, He's so hands on.....I was thoroughly impressed:)
Amongst the tasty selection of savories was a thick cut Roast Beef sandwich with Horseradish Cream, Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese, Egg Salad, and Cucumber Watercress sandwiches. A very traditional spread for an English Tea. Amongst the hot selection of food were Prawn and Chicken Satay with a peanut dipping sauce, Fish Croquettes with Hollandaise, and Duck and Cranberry Turnovers.
He even had time to pose for a picture with me. Gary is very comfortable in the culinary and media scene in Dubai. He has just launched his third venue, Rhodes in Residence, an all day dining concept with in the luxury hotel Grosvenor House, Tower Two. He has also become synonymous with food festival known as Taste of Dubai which is set to launch in March 2012, and said, he couldn't imagine not being a part of it since Dubai has become his second home!
After the elaborate Tea, we were also served these cute little cones with Raspberry Sorbet plus Toffee and Chocolate Ice Cream!
Gary Rhodes has two established restaurants in Dubai already, Rhodes Twenty10 in Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa as well as Rhodes Mezzanine in The Grosvenor House, Tower One.
