Three new chefs have joined The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah’s current collection of ten celebrity restaurants, celebrating a total of 7 Michelin stars at their most recent culinary appointments.

The announcement that Francky Semblat, Kim Joinie-Maurin and Kasper Kurdahl have joined the Burj Al Arab team follows the recent milestone recruitment of Michael Ellis as Chief Culinary Officer – the former Managing Director of the Michelin Guide.

Whilst Francky Semblat and Kim Joinie-Maurin are both protégés of the famed Joël Robuchon’s school of excellence, Kasper Kurdahl worked alongside culinary legends like Roger Souvereyns. All three chefs add a unique touch to the dining scene at Burj Al Arab.

The hotel’s Al Muntaha restaurant welcomes Chef Francky and Sky View restaurant Chef Kim, whilst Chef Kasper joins Al Mahara restaurant.

Anthony Costa, Regional Vice President of Jumeirah Group and Managing Director of Burj al Arab, who appointed the three celebrity Chefs said: “I am thrilled to be welcoming Chefs Kasper, Francky and Kim to Burj Al Arab. Their experience at some of the world’s best restaurants coupled with their diverse backgrounds and entrepreneurial adventures will pave the path to a wonderful gastronomic journey.”
