AALIA is wrapping up its 2023 Chef Series with its final event, featuring French-Lebanese Michelin-starred chef, Alan Geaam, as its final guest. Teaming up with AALIA’s Executive Chef, Paul Farag, AALIA invites guests to experience Middle Eastern cuisine with a twist. 

Alan Geaam is celebrated for his Lebanese heritage dishes with a refined French touch. His unwavering dedication to innovation and passion for pushing culinary boundaries are now on display in the heart of Sydney, promising an exceptional dining experience.

The collaboration between the talented duo marks the bittersweet farewell of AALIA’s 2023 Chef Series. This exclusive event will take place over two nights, Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th of October, 2023. 

Promising a blend of flavourful techniques, the menu features an array of dishes such as hummus cornet with trout roe and nuts and lobster with freekeh and arak. For dessert, guests are invited to indulge in a sweet brik pastry baklava with cashew ice cream and preserved quince and a Mouhalabia lollipop.

“This will be the first time we embark on emulating the ‘Alan Geaam dining experience’ anywhere else in the world. I am so excited to delve into Sydney’s fresh and local ingredients to bring a creative, beautiful, and delicious menu to life with Chef Paul and his team. I am beyond excited to give Australian diners the best possible experience,” says Alan.

Head Sommelier Eleonore Wulf has curated two wine pairings and one non-alcoholic pairing for the evenings. This selection will showcase a range of Lebanese varietals, adding an extra layer of sophistication to the dining experience.
