This remarkable fine-dining experience is enhanced when the Head Sommelier is invited to pair the perfect beverages with diners’ choices. Any experience characterised as avant-garde might seem a little unusual at first. Which is why guests and visitors are invited to have a drink at The Conservatory linking Gordon Ramsay and its sister restaurant Opal to watch the theatre and satisfy a thirst for the out of the ordinary. Guests are welcome to use the private entrance to the restaurant which is located from the ground floor on the right hand side of Hakkasan; a private elevator will lead you directly to Gordon Ramsay. 4446 0105, gordonramsaydoha.com

COCKTAILS AND MOCKTAILS

When throwing a party, put some cocktail sparkle into the celebrations. You don’t have to be a mixologist to indulge in some of the old-school classics. There is an almost endless list of cocktails and mocktails to create. To help you on your way, we have put together a list of a few timeless favourites.

St. Regis Hotels have a signature Bloody Mary cocktail attached to their hotels around the world. In Doha you can try the Signature St. Regis Bloody Mary and the Spice Route Mary. Not for the faint hearted!

Bubbles on Two in the East wing at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Doha, serves up a pretty perfect Long Island Iced Tea. Typically made with sugar syrup, lemon or lime juice, chilled cola, light rum, tequilla and gin. There are loads of variations of this drink, add vodka and Cointreau for that extra kick!

The mocktail variation of Long Island Iced Tea, minus the alcohol, suggests adding two or three ounces of lemonade or ginger ale and topping off with a couple of maraschino cherries.

Spice Route Mary is made with a medley of fragrant spices and contains lemon salt, sumac powder, tomato juice, V8 juice, fresh lime, harissa paste, cumin, ginger, premium pepper vodka, celery stalk and lemon wedge for garnish, saffron oil, Worcestershire sauce, black olive powder, and ras el hanout (a North African spice). Create a Virgin Bloody Mary by excluding the pepper vodka, it’s a gorgeous savoury drink full of flavour and will heat you from the inside out. © m a r h a ba Dining Guide

145


Lava at the InterContinental Doha will serve you a devilish Martini – shaken, or stirred. Elegantly presented and mixed with gin, dry vermouth, a garnish of lemon zest twist and/ or an olive or two. If you find yourself heading toward Downtown Doha, pop into the pub at the Mercure Grand Hotel Doha City and enjoy a Martini and a nibble. The mocktail version of this cocktail exists only in a bowl of olives, savoured with a sparkling lemon drink.

The Meliá Doha offers a sophisticated selection of mocktails by day or night at their poolside patio – in the evening cocktails are served in their classy club, Noir. Pay a visit to the Westin Doha Hotel & Spa, they are shaking up the cocktail culture in Doha with mixology magic!

Should you find youself poolside at either the Concorde, Al Shaqab or Wyndham Grand Regency Hotels, they serve mouth-watering mocktails from a selection of freshly concocted potions. The way to keep cool and hydrated on those very hot Doha summer days.

A Mojito is always a firm favourite amongst many, made with white rum, lemon juice, sugar, fresh mint and a choice of ginger, red berries, kumquants or passion fruit. Deliciousness to make your mouth water and your tastebuds dance.

Pink grapefruit and pomegranate with soda is a simple and fruity juice. Try a twist on this mocktail – the Al Dirwandi Special at Adagio Premium Aparthotel Doha West Bay. Add lingonberries to enhance the flavour – or a little vodka and your mocktail is now a cocktail.

BUSINESS LUNCH ETIQUETTE

When people can relax and have a good time, they're more likely to open up, making it easier to strengthen a business relationship. So be yourself and have a good time! The savvy professional knows the importance of strong dining skills and it should come as no surprise that dining, unless done well, could be disastrous to your reputation. It is for this reason that second interviews are often conducted over a meal. How you conduct yourself at the table, under pressure with a mouthful of food, can either positively or negatively influence a business decision. The key is to know what to do before the uncomfortable moment presents itself. A successful business meal requires advanced skills and thoughtful planning. The following are a few basic dining etiquette tips that a young graduate or seasoned executive can't afford to overlook.

The host is responsible for the success of the meal. Everything from selecting the restaurant to paying the bill and taking care of the tip falls under the heading of a 'sophisticated host.' However, not all hosts are sophisticated and as a guest you must assume nothing. Make sure to carry money and a credit card in your wallet in the event there is confusion with the bill and the server hands it directly to you (a rare occurrence but it has happened). The host should immediately take control but in the event he or she delays, put your credit card in the leather bill holder without hesitation.

202

Dining Guide Š m a r h a b a

If this is a job interview, think carefully before accepting a job from someone who is not prepared to pay for the interview meal. A well-bred executive knows how to make their guest comfortable. He or she knows the importance of offering menu suggestions; giving the guest subtle parameters. As a guest, ordering too little sends the message that you are nervous or unsure. Ordering the best on the menu sends the message that you are ravenous or taking advantage of the free meal. A good rule of thumb is to follow the lead of the host. Drink from your own water glass and stay away from your client’s bread plate. A sure way to negate your own professionalism is by making the mistake of drinking from your client’s water glass or eating from their bread plate. Your drink will always be placed on the right side, above your knife and soup spoon, and your bread plate will always be placed on the left side, above your fork or forks. A tip for remembering: bring the tip of your index finger to the tip of your thumb as the other


three fingers are straight. The right hand will make the shape of a ‘d’ -- a reminder that the drink is on the right-hand side -- and the left hand will make the shape of a ‘b’ for bread. Your salad and entrée plate will be placed in the centre of the utensils, below the bread plate and water glass.

Salt and pepper are married. When someone asks for salt, pass both the salt and pepper. This small gesture indicates you are familiar with the rules of the table, as well as extending a courtesy to fellow guests. Try a little of everything on your plate unless you have a food allergy. You will present yourself as unsophisticated (and juvenile) if you eat only your steak and potatoes, turning your nose up at your peas and carrots.

If an accident at the table occurs, handle it and move on. Ask for assistance from your server and don’t give the situation more attention than it deserves.

A dropped utensil stays on the floor. Kick it out of the way so other restaurant guests will not trip or slip. It’s not necessary to dive under the table to retrieve it. Signal your server for another fork and encourage your guest to continue eating. Use the business meal as an opportunity to build a relationship. People do business with people they trust. Employers hire those they feel will represent their company in the best possible light. A lunch meeting is a great opportunity to showcase your professional knowledge, strong communication skills, and attention to detail. Taking the time and making the effort to hone your dining skills is an investment in your business success. Finally to reiterate, be yourself! There is a reason you›re not in the office. You can accomplish quite a lot with business lunches, but you shouldn’t lose sight of why they work so well: when people can relax and have a good time, they’re more likely to open up, making it easier to strengthen a business relationship.

When leaving the table during the meal, place your napkin on your chair and push the chair back under the table. It is not important to announce where you are going, or what you will be doing when you get there. A cough or a sneeze should be directed into your left shoulder, shielded by your left hand, keeping your right hand germ free. Avoid using your napkin as a tissue. © m a r h a ba

ROOM FOR DESSERT The word dessert comes from the French word desservir, which means to clear the table. Desserts are usually a sweet course served after the end of a meal – whether as a quick snack or to finish out a grand dinner. Over the years, desserts have changed from natural candies and nuts to complex multi-layered cakes, and can also include cookies, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding and sweets. Moderation is key, but every once in a while grant yourself permission to indulge after a meal, or just because. When in Doha you will find a seemingly endless array of dessert options from across the world, from India’s gulab jamuns, to English mince pies, delicious French macarons or the quintessential American apple pie – and of course, here you’ll get to indulge in a wide selection of scrumptious and authentic Middle Eastern sweets to please any palate.

JUICING VS SMOOTHIES

If you’re looking to add liquid nutrition to your regimen, fresh juices and smoothies both offer nutritional benefits. Each, however, has distinct advantages and drawbacks. When you want to boost your intake of fresh vegetables and fruits, juicing is a good way to achieve that goal. If you need an on-the-go meal or snack that provides nutrients to keep you feeling full, smoothies are an excellent choice.

the juicing process makes the nutrients in produce more readily available because your body doesn’t have to break down the food before absorbing the nutrients. However, no scientific evidence exists to confirm whether this is healthier than eating fresh fruit. Things to consider about jucing Juicing strips most of the fibre content from vegetables and fruits. The daily recommended amount of fibre is 25 gm

The advantages of juicing The top reason to juice is to increase your intake of fresh produce. Vegetables and fruits supply the body with a wealth of vitamins and minerals that help boost immunity and fight oxidative stress in the body. Juicing also affords you an opportunity to experiment with vegetables you might not normally consume or know how to use in recipes, like kale or beets, which are bursting with nutrients such as vitamin K and B vitamins. Clinicians believe

JUICING VS SMOOTHIES.indd 1

3/11/16 12:19 PM


Smoothies are full of fibre that contributes to your daily intake, and can often be substituted for a light meal or snack.

or more, depending on gender and age. Because the produce used to make fresh juice won’t count toward your fibre intake, you’ll need to make sure you are getting enough fibre from other daily servings of vegetables and fruits. Juice is also not a meal replacement, since it is not a significant source of protein, and protein and fibre are the nutrients needed to fill you up. Finally, you will need to invest in a juicer to start juicing, which is an added expense. The advantages of smoothies You don’t need any special equipment to make smoothies, just an ordinary blender. Given the right ingredients, you can easily make a light, nutritious meal with a smoothie by combining fruits and vegetables with a

source of protein, such as soy milk, low-fat yogurt or a scoop of protein powder. As with juicing, making smoothies allows you to blend foods you might not think of combining. For example, a standard green smoothie mixes a leafy green vegetable like kale or chard with an antioxidant-rich fruit like blueberries. You’ll retain the fibre in fruits and vegetables when you make a smoothie, and you can add more beneficial fibre and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids by tossing in a couple of tablespoons of flaxseed or chia seeds. The fibre and protein in a smoothie add up to a satisfying meal or snack. Things to consider about smoothies If you pack your smoothie with sweet ingredients – ice cream, flavoured yogurt, sweetened almond milk, honey or too much frozen fruit – you’ll be adding significantly to your daily sugar intake, which increases the drink’s calorie count and may lead to blood sugar spikes. For the most nutritious smoothies, aim for a mix of fruit, vegetables, healthy fat and protein, which can help you lose or maintain weight by keeping you satisfied until your next meal. © m a r h a ba

CHAPATI & KARAK KARAK TEA AND CHAPATI

Building Number 23

Hundreds of cars stop daily in front of the store in Katara to take a sip of its special karak chai and taste the crispy chapati. Traffic moves at a snail’s pace on the designated side of the road, while young waiters stand on the roadside from early morning till late at night delivering chapati and karak chai to customers in their cars. For the convenience of families only, there is a designated paved outdoor seating area.

CHAI AND CHAPATI Karak chai is a firm favourite of locals and expats alike. It was first introduced to the Gulf through the Indian SubContinent. Made from the finest Indian dark tea, together with herbs, warm spices, mellowed with full cream milk and slow cooked to ensure the infusion is of the highest quality. Chapati was also introduced through the Indian Sub-Continent. Chapati is a flat unleavened bread from a firm but pliable dough mixture of flour, water, salt and oil. Small portions are rolled out into discs, thrown on to a preheated dry skillet (tava), quickly cooked on both sides and served immediately while still hot.

EXPLORE AL WAKRA The suburb of Al Wakra is located halfway between Doha and Mesaieed. Originally an old fishing village, it has now grown and includes a state-of-the-art hospital alongside a farmer’s market, with historic architecture including a castle, mosques, and a harbour. Recently opened to the public, Souq Waqif Al Wakra has been many years in the making, and provides a new venue to walk, eat or shop. The market area stretches approximately 3 km along the coast, with a picturesque corniche – perfect for a lazy stroll before taking a break at one of the pavement cafés and restaurants. Designed along the architectural lines of Souq Waqif and Katara, many more outlets will open in the future, making this a new cultural hotspot for Qatar’s residents.
