Erth Hospitality

From the beating heart of Abu Dhabi, Erth glows as a beacon of Emirati hospitality, as its ancient and distinguished history flows beautifully for more than 25 years in the world of hospitality and culinary arts. Erth is characterized by an exceptional vision, as it works to embody creativity and excellence in the various talents it offers to renew the spirit of innovation that inhabits it, as they were not just small details in its journey, but rather were the basic elements that deeply rooted it in every stage of its continuous development, in addition to its constant keenness to preserving the rich traditions of our Emirates’ ancient heritage.

Chef Alain Ducasse

“We must open our doors to all cooking enthusiasts and let them get to know, try and understand where the delicious food served to them comes from. We aim to offer classes that suit today’s tastes, by opening up to other types of cooking, by adapting to different levels of ability in a modern and user-friendly space with efficient and easy-to-use equipment. This cooking school is a condensation of experiences and know-how, adapted to everyone’s desires”
