Celebrity chefs coming to Taste of Dubai

Taste of Dubai is back with three days showcasing 20 top restaurants, ten celebrity chefs and dishes to ditch the diet for.

The annual festival will return from Thursday March 7 until Saturday 9 for a brand-new series of masterclasses, demonstrations, tastings and competitions, while punters also enjoy basking in the glorious Dubai sunshine with access to a host of bars, live music and entertainment. Bring it on.

Tony Hadley, the former lead singer with Spandau Ballet, will headline the opening night of Taste of Dubai.

Getting things underway at the weekend of live entertainment at the food, drink and music festival, the former lead singer of Spandau Ballet will perform classic hits including Gold, True, and Only When You Leave.

And 2019 is set to be a year to remember, with the celebrity line-up including Michelin-starred chef David Myers, Dubai darlings Scott Price and Nick Alvis, Iron Chef Masuharu Morimoto and patisserie pro Eric Lanlard.

They will be showcasing their signature dishes, discussing the latest cooking trends and putting the latest culinary technologies to the test.

They will also be putting together their knowledge and passion for food and making live appearances in the Chefs’ Theatre and Al Ain Farms & Kibsons Cooking Challenge.

So for all you foodies out there, if you fancy picking up new recipes, tips and tricks straight from the best in the industry, this is the event for you.

Taste of Dubai will also see 20 of the best restaurants in the city serving up miniature versions of their signature dishes.
