BROUGHT TO YOU BY EMIRATES AIRLINE
The intersection of cultures that have influenced celebrity chef Ludo Lefebvre have served him pretty well. The culinary lessons he brought from his native Paris to the sunny streets of Los Angeles twenty years ago have been enthusiastically received — to the tune of four wildly successful restaurants, an embarrassment of accolades (including two James Beard nominations) and a position as one of television’s go-to toques.
CHEF LUDO LEFEBVRE
So we figured what better guy to take with us to an actual intersection of culinary culture: Dubai.
The gastronomy of that glittering oasis in the desert bears the standard of more nations than a General Assembly, and it’s all waiting with open arms for any foodie with a sense of adventure, a couple days to kill and the smarts to book with our friends at Emirates Airline.
Post trip, we sat down to chat with Ludo about his thoughts on the journey, his penchant for spices, and what it’s like to have a killer falcon perched on your arm.
