British kosher caterer to establish kitchen in Dubai

Move comes following the UAE's normalisation of ties with Israel


A British kosher caterer will help establish a kosher kitchen in the United Arab Emirates to serve the hospitality industry in Dubai following the normalisation of political ties between the Gulf nation and Israel.

1070 Kitchen, based in London, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with hospitality provider Blue Horizon to establish a kitchen that will supply hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions.

The joint venture is in anticipation of Jewish tourists travelling to the UAE following the agreement signed between the two countries earlier this month.

The new kitchen will be established under the guidance of 1070’s head chef Oren Goldfeld, who himself hails from Israel and started out working in the UK under Yotam Ottolenghi.

1070 already supplies kosher food to many London hotels, including the Ritz and the Savoy, as well as several airlines, including El-Al’s lounge at Heathrow Airport.

The news comes just a day after it was announced that UAE’s first kosher restaurant has opened in the world’s tallest building.

Armani/Kaf sits on the ground floor of the Burj Khalifa, as part of the Armani Hotel, and will provide room service and a delivery provision throughout Dubai. It will be certified as kosher under the supervision of Rabbi Levi Duchman, UAE’s Chabad rabbi.
