TASTE OF DUBAI: FOODIES DELIGHT

I had never visited the Taste of Dubai food festival before, and I was not going to make that mistake again! So on Saturday (which happened to be the last day) I ventured out at noon. Luckily not too many people so got to meet a lot of the Chefs (setting up for future Chef Talk interviews), tried some wonderful food (thankfully they were small portions), learned about new dishes from different parts of the world and basically met some wonderful people along the way.

Here is my journey of the sights and tastes at the Taste of Dubai event:
