Inspired by Princess Diana’s visit to the Fabled Green Mountain and The Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar, the spectacular 5-star mountain top hotel, is thrilled to announce a royal inspired popup culinary event due to take place at the heart of the resort, at Diana’s Point, where Princess Diana herself once stood and met with the Sultan of Oman in 1986. With its fascinating history and royal links set in place, the hotel has been inspired to partner with royally acclaimed Chef Nikolaos Koulousias, famed for working on the menu for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle. This culinary talent was one of the selected chefs enlisted to prepare the official menu for the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and brings with him a wealth of experience. The thirty-seven-year-old was recently awarded the prestigious title of Ambassador for Greek Gastronomy for his success in spreading Greek food worldwide.
“When I heard that Niko played a major role in the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan, it was an obvious thought to link this event to Diana’s Point,” said the Hotel’s GM Dagmar Symes. The culinary popup will take place from 6th-8th November at the edge of the mountain top, on Diana’s Point. During the course of the three-day event, guests will enjoy an unforgettable dining experience, including a welcome cocktail with Chef Niko and a meal inspired by dishes selected from the Royal wedding with a blend of local produce. Guests will have the opportunity to dine where Princess Diana once stood and supposedly read her book, whilst Prince Charles painted the magnificent scenery in water color on the mountains’ edge.
Surrounded by spectacular mountain views, Chef Niko’s Royal Affairs Dinner will help revive this iconic and memorable spot with royal flair, taking guests on an unforgettable royal journey through the mountains. “Omani flavors, pomegranates and rosewater blended into the spirit of the Royal Wedding will be the highlight of the event,” remarked Symes.
