Four Seasons Dubai Greets the Crescent Moon with Experiences That Celebrate Togetherness

The spirit of Ramadan comes to life at the shimmering coast and in the heart of the city
March 18, 2022,
Dubai, U.A.E.

A month dedicated to reflection and peacefulness, Ramadan brings with it feelings of warmth and nostalgia, budding from memories cherished under the crescent moon. Age-old traditions traverse the distance between past and present.  The drummers of Turkey, cannons of Arabia, night-callers of Jordan and lanterns of Egypt share one thing in common: they mark the beginning of the Holy Month. This is when every meal means more, each connection is made stronger, and all hearts are made warmer through togetherness. With this sentiment in mind, Four Seasons Dubai has launched experiences across its beachside resort and city hotel, bringing Dubai’s residents and visitors, ever closer this Ramadan.

Gateaux De Ma’moul by Nicolas Lambert

Taking inspiration from the iconic Arabian holiday dessert, the date-filled ma’moul cookies, Senior Executive Pastry Chef Nicolas Lambert has created a cake to be savoured during the Holy Month. The dough features notes of almond, and while soft in the middle, is satisfyingly crispy on the outside. The filling is made up of layers of artisanal pistachio cream with a hint of orange blossom, scattered with delightful pieces of dates. The pastry is then finished with fresh pistachio and a mashrabiya patterned cardamom crust. The cake is available for pick-up orders at Shai Salon throughout Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr.

  • Date: Available throughout Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr
  • Rate: AED 250 per cake – suitable for up to eight persons

Ramadan in the City: Cherish Comradery at Four Seasons Hotel DIFC

This is where trades and haggles make way for comradery and connection at the Iftar and Suhoor tables, as colleagues and friends strengthen their bonds and celebrate successes at Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre.

Iftar at MINA Brasserie:

Bridging the flavour gap between Arabia and the west is one of celebrity chef Michael Mina’s passions. Peppering innovation into Arabian classics, MINA Brasserie’s Iftar menu is one to savour. The Levantine classic Fatteh for instance is re-imagined with the unexpected punchiness of cranberry balancing out the creamy and nutty flavours the dish is known for. The Braised Lamb Shank, which is cooked with European precision, satisfies the Arabian appreciation for lamb by blending in earthy flavours with a serving of mushroom orzo. These specials among others will be added to MINA Brasserie’s A la carte menu during the Holy Month.
