Foodies, tourists and Dubai’s general public are on high alert this week, hunting down recipes and international cuisines from this year’s edition of ‘Taste of Dubai’ in the emirate’s Media City.

Five international and regional bands are performing at the three-day event, as 30 of Dubai’s best restaurants kicked off the fest on Thursday, giving visitors the chance to indulge in tastes from Latin America to Asia and Europe.

Armani Ristorante and Armani Amal, Thiptara and Asado, while firm favourites Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Rivington Grill, Rhodes Mezzanine and Gaucho, were among others that are back to show off the very best of gastronomy and indulgence.

However, for those who want to roll their sleeves up and get involved, the interactive cookery school gives amateur chefs an opportunity to show off their skills.

“Our visitors love to enjoy good food and they are always ready to try something new in a city like Dubai which boasts one of the world’s best collections of restaurants,” said Chris Fountain, Managing Director of Turret Media, the organizers of Taste of Dubai.

Celebrity chefs taking part in the festival include the Food Network’s Reza Mahammad and Jenny Morris plus Gary Rhodes, Richard Sandoval and Vineet Bhatia.

The organizers of the event have anticipated up 25,000 visitors
