Dubai, 20th February 2012
In March it will be time again for an entire weekend of enjoying tastes from around the world. From March 15th to 17th, Dubai Media City will be taken over by internationally renowned chefs cooking up a storm for eager foodies.
More akin to a music festival than a restaurant experience, Taste of Dubai promises demonstrations by chefs such as Gary Rhodes and Vineet Bhatia, many of them affiliated with restaurants in Dubai. But whilst a little instruction never goes amiss, I personally have no ambitions to become a chef, and will be there solely to sample the food.
25 restaurants (including lovey Rivington Grill, gorgeous Rhodes Mezzanine, yummy Ronda Locatelli, Zafran and many more) will be participating offering visitors samples of their signature dishes; the local alcohol shop MMI will allow people to broaden their knowledge of the humble grape and there is a VIP tents for some bubbles to accompany the dishes. A resident band will entice you to dance off those calories, or lounge around on the grass taking in the atmosphere, and there is plenty of entertainment for younger family members, too.
Last year some 17,000 people came, saw and ate. Make sure you book early, otherwise the goodies will be gone…
