The Taste of Dubai is an amazing – and delicious – annual food festival held in Dubai. This is its seventh year running, and it has consecutively been my favourite time of the year, especially as I am a food fanatic. This year many famous chefs attended, such as Eric Lanlard and Jean-Christophe Novelli – both of whom are stunning chefs. Many new companies also registered this year, making it an even more varied experience.
The liveliness of the environment hits you from the minute you walk through the gates. The smell of the scrumptious food began to fill my nose and the anticipation began to build. I was mesmerised by Magnolia Bakery’s eclectic array of cakes, and took a cupcake decorating class, led by the bakery’s chef (by far the best part was getting to keep and eat the cupcakes).

Followed by the hard work I made my way over to BiCE which served me a rich Spinach and Ricotta Tortellacci in a Light Truffle Sauce; that pasta was amazing beyond human imagination.
By the end of these tongue twisting tastes I made my way to the stage where Virgin Radio put on very entertaining performances. To put a perfect ending to the night it started to drizzle, bringing along a swirling breeze which paired miraculously with my hot chocolate. All in all, my weekend at Taste of Dubai was perfectly seasoned, and the most flavourful yet.
