Taste of Dubai returns to Dubai Media City Amphitheatre next month, as part of Dubai Food Festival.

Back for its 12th year, three-day event offers a chance to taste 20 of the city’s best restaurant dishes, be inspired by tips and tricks from celebrity chefs, participate in live cooking demonstrations and enjoy non-stop live music throughout the weekend.

This year’s lineup of international culinary talent includes Masterchef Australia’s judge Matt Preston; Michelin Star chef David Myers; legendary Michelin Star chef Masaharu Morimoto; Dubai-based culinary duo Nick Alvis and Scott Price; English cook and restauranteur Simon Rimmer; meat & grilling expert Tarek Ibrahim and South African chef Lorna Masek

New for 2019, Master French Pâtissier, Eric Lanlard will be running a series of baking masterclasses at the new ‘Jif Big Baking Tent’, where you can learn the art of cake decorating.

The much loved, foodie favourite the Al Ain Farm and Kibsons cooking challenge will be back with a jam-packed schedule of cooking classes with Taste of Dubai’s celebrity chefs for aspiring culinary cooks to participate in.

For the first time in Dubai, Masterchef Australia’s Matt Preston will be jetting in to Taste of Dubai on Saturday March 9 to host a very special Masterchef, the TV Experience ‘Mystery Box Challenge’ where amateur cooks will get a chance to get their dishes judged by Matt himself.

Matt will also join the judging panel at the Chefs’ Theatre as Chef Margarita from the world’s first Masterchef, the TV Experience, restaurant opening in Dubai later this year, takes to the stage.

This year’s edition will feature tastings from over 20 different restaurants in Dubai. The four-day event starts on Thursday March 7 and runs until Saturday March 9.
