Cassale Sherriff, Event Director, Turret Group Middle East says:
"Taste festivals are growing rapidly thanks to popular demand and we're delighted to be launching Taste festival in Dubai next year. With its vibrant restaurant scene, Dubai is being hailed as the culinary hub of the region. Taste of Dubai will be an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our exquisite restaurants & gourmet produce."
Held annually, the International Taste events in London, Edinburgh, Bath, Dublin and Birmingham have all been incredibly successful attracting over 130,000 visitors each year.
In addition to leading local chefs, Taste of Dubai will feature the who's who of the international culinary world at its Chefs' Theatre where visitors can catch celebrity chefs in action during demonstrations and tutorials.
Gary Rhodes says: "I am thrilled to be a part of Taste of Dubai. It's a great opportunity for foodies both living in and visiting Dubai to sample an array of delectable foods from across the world. It's also a great way for us to showcase our unique take on British cuisine with my restaurant - Rhodes Mezzanine."
As well as food, the show offers the chance to sample an amazing array of drinks from specialty suppliers and themed bars as well as exhibitors selling gourmet food and lifestyle products.
Taste visitors will discover a mouth-watering array of gourmet food suppliers at the event in
February, in addition to browsing the stalls, and trying delicious specialty food and ingredients available to buy and enjoy at home. Some of the line-up includes The Lime Tree Café, Barakat, Shakespeare's, Impulse, Lauqen, Fire Fly Tonics, Extreme Drinks, Mark Wilkinson Furniture, Tavola, Magrudy's & Paul Newmans Own.
Taste of Dubai will also offer an amazing array of beverages. Specialized tastings in a dedicated Beverage Theatre will showcase daily tutorials on pairing grapes with food, from leading experts and connoisseurs.
