Sultanate of Oman Chapitre
Muscat, February 15, 2018
Futuristic event at the InterContinental Muscat
" The very entertaining menu, great wines and exceptionally memorable setting made for an evening that will be long remembered "

A dark tunnel illuminated with blue LED lights led the members and guests into a world of the future.

Following the promotion and induction of members old and new, the scene had already been set by unusual appetizers accompanying the champagne: “Reverse spherical Manzanilla olives”, which burst apart into a shot of flavourful liquid at the first bite and “Cinnamon-infused Granny Smith and grenadine shooter”, a spectacular combination of flavours.

We emerged into a dining area and took our places for an extra-ordinary dinner themed: “French Cuisine and Molecular Gastronomy”
