Dubai Food Festival 2009 Gears Up To Present Cuisines Of The World

Creating a feast of exotic tastes and smells, the Dubai Food Festival, a signature event of DSF 2009, is all set once again to give taste buds a treat. Beginning at UPTOWN Mirdiff® on Feb 1, the two-week event will see a host of culinary activities and cuisines from around the world through the participation of over 20 well-known restaurants from across Dubai.

This year the food festival will truly bring out the essence of a market place which will be the centre of the action as more stalls join the square. Fresh and local produce will be on offer, with everything from top quality ice cream to fruits and coffee, in addition to food markets, cookery workshops, and tasting sessions.

Participating restaurants will present a wide variety of cuisines including Sri Lankan, Filipino, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Japanese, British, Egyptian, Lebanese, South Asian, French, and Emarati cuisine.

Yousif Mubarak, Chief Operations Officer of DSF Office said, “Dubai Food Festival is a celebration of not just cuisines but of the different resident cultures in Dubai. Food is an element that brings people from various backgrounds together and this is very much in line with the ‘One World. One Family. One Festival.’ slogan of DSF.”

Food enthusiasts can find a host of activities at this year’s Dubai Food Festival:

World Record Attempt:
An attempt of breaking a world record on the 13th Feb 2009, the festival along with the ECG (Emirates Culinary Guild) will create a largest Dessert Buffet of total of 2009 different desserts. The endeavour will be part of DSF’s new initiative – Dubai Records.

Buffet Tuesdays: 3rd Feb and 10th Feb 2009 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm ‘Buffet Tuesdays’ provide a choice of 40 delicious delicacies for AED 40 only.

Live Cooking Tents: Since its inception, the Dubai Food Festival has encouraged a broad range of restaurant participants, not to mention the diversity of restaurants from Calzones to Shwarmas, Biryanis to Burgers.

Food Market: The festival isn’t just about eating. It’s also about the entire experience while strolling the streets of the festival. The Food Market is a great place for amazing buys.

The Demonstration Area: This area is a marquee set up at the festival; it hosts a rolling programme of cookery demonstrations between 6pm and 10pm everyday - along with some additional tastings.
