Al Faisaliah Hotel, A Rosewood Hotel's Canadian Food Festival will begin on October 5 and runs for 10 days in the Cristal restaurant, while La Brasserie restaurant will feature Canadian cuisine throughout the entire month of October.
Al Faisaliah Hotel, A Rosewood Hotel managing director Peter Finamore said: “We are thrilled to introduce the diverse cuisine of Canada to Riyadh with the launch of the Canadian Food Festival.
“We take great pleasure in continuing to contribute to the evolution of the Kingdom’s dining scene. City residents and hotel guests are assured authentic, elegant meals in three of our most beloved restaurants.”
The property’s Il Terrazzo restaurant will also feature a selection of Canadian meats and seafood throughout October.
According to the hotel, this will be the first time a "Canadian culinary extravaganza" has taken place in the KSA, and the festivities will kick off with a glamorous gala dinner at the hotel, held under the patronage of Canadian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Excellency David Chatterson.
Some of the Canadian treats on offer in October will include butter seared diver scallops or braised bison and sweet potato ravioli.
