Newly appointed chef Hugo Soulery will be tasked with driving the development of sensational menus at Terra Solis Dubai, a unique desert getaway set to open in October 2022. Inspired by the Tastes of the World cuisine at the world-renowned Tomorrowland festival in Belgium, the destination’s menu is expected to feature a range of dishes from around the world, prepared with seasonal ingredients from farmers and producers. The culinary offering is accompanied by a wide selection of drinks and cocktails, as well as Tomorrowland music.
The French native has worked at several Michelin-starred restaurants, including Le Pre Catelan and Hôtel de Crillon, stalwarts of the French F&B scene, as well as Le Metropolitan in Toulouse and Ma Langue Sourit in Luxembourg. Since then, Soulery has embarked on a journey, enhancing his international experience and showcasing his skills at Dubai’s One & Only Royal Mirage. During his tenure, the chef worked at Celebrities by Mauro Colagreco, the Beach Bar and Grill and Drift Beach Club.
Nicolas Vandenabeele, founder of Terra Solis Dubai, said: “Hugo has incredible experience garnered from working in some of the most luxurious restaurants in arguably the home of fine dining, Paris. This expertise and flair, combined with his drive to innovate and produce exciting menus full of flavor, aroma and color matches perfectly with the brand ethos of Terra Solis Dubai. Standing out from the crowd is exactly what we want to do, and, with Hugo’s culinary insight and experience, we are creating a dining destination in its own right in the Dubai desert.”
Soulery said: “Dubai is at the very epicenter of the culinary world right now, the Michelin Guide and the Gault & Millau awards recognizing the world-class offering available in the city. At Terra Solis Dubai, we are committed to delivering an F&B offering that is representative of the Tomorrowland brand, while always striving to deliver something new and unique to the culinary scene in Dubai.”
With Terra Solis Dubai due to officially open in October, Soulery will be responsible for overseeing the launch of a range of exciting dining and lounge venues, including MESA, slated to open December and set to be the star dining attraction at the desert destination.
