The ‘Art’ Of Afternoon Tea with Van Gogh

During the month of March, Fairmont The Palm will pay tribute to some of the world’s most iconic art with an exhibition and bespoke afternoon tea honouring Vincent Van Gogh. Seven of the most famous Van Gogh works, including Sunflowers, will be on display at Mashrabiya Lounge at Fairmont The Palm as part of the exclusive newly created Van Gogh Museum Relievo collection of fine-art reproductions. Combining the passions for art and food, the culinary team has created the Van Gogh themed afternoon tea, inspired by flavours from the Mediterranean where the great artist lived and worked.


Bringing classical European art to your Dubai doorstep, the Van Gogh afternoon tea and exhibition will make the ideal Mothers’ Day occasion and a day she will remember.


Start this delightful journey with a selection of savoury offerings inspired by the Mediterranean with fresh and vibrant ingredients made famous by the region. Provençal shrimps and basil on capsicum bread, and roasted and lavender infused duck with plum chutney are two of the delectable options available. Follow with an almond dragée choux, or a lemon and sesame macaroon for the perfect afternoon tea.


Admire each brushstroke in the Relievo collection on display at Fairmont The Palm, which will include Sunflowers, Almond blossom, The harvest, The bedroom, Wheatfield under thunderclouds, Boulevard de Clichy and Landscape at twilight. Informative tours of the collection, providing valuable insight into each piece, will take place every Saturday in March starting at 2pm in the lobby of Fairmont The Palm.


The Van Gogh afternoon tea is available daily from 12pm to 6pm at the award-winning Mashrabiya Lounge at Fairmont The Palm from 26 February until 31 March 2015.
