Dubai Food Festival (DFF) returns for its seventh edition on February 26 as part of plans to cement Dubai’s position as the gastronomy capital of the region.
Running until March 14, the upcoming edition of DFF will celebrate the city’s culinary diversity drawn from the UAE and the cultures of over 200 nationalities in Dubai, a statement said.
It added that the event will also give residents, visitors, families and foodies an insight into the latest tastes and trends from the global gastronomy scene.
Organised by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), the 18-day festival will offer a range of mouth-watering events including annual favourites such as Dubai Restaurant Week, Beach Canteen and Hidden Gems.
Foodie Experiences will also feature masterclasses, chef tables and unique dining fare as well as appearances by celebrity chefs, food-related events and promotions at malls, restaurants and hypermarkets.
