Taste of Abu Dhabi


Taste of Abu Dhabi is a food, drink and music festival, food being the main attraction. A gathering of people from all corners of the earth can rub shoulders with some of the world’s best chefs, culinary giants of this industry, movers and shakers, masters of modern day gastronomy taught by previous masters and the renaissance masters. I must emphasize that families are most welcome.

This wonderful culinary event is still in its infant stage, however with that in mind, if the past three years are anything to go by; it’s going to be another success! This year the venue has been moved to Zayed Sports City. It runs from the 10th till the 12th November, with the help from the wonderful ICCA Dubai culinary students.

A star-studded lineup with my friend and wonderful TV chef, south Africa’s First lady of cooking, the wonderful Jenny Morris. This year also sees Ed Bains a wonderful chef and extremely well known in the UK for his culinary programs. My good friend Joshua Stanzl (Executive Chef) will be cooking up some mouth-watering treats in both the theaters. UAE favorites and TV Chefs Mohammad Orfali and Tarek Ibrahim also will be a part of the food fair.

However, the two superstars must be yours truly, Marco J Morana and Aziz Rajab, where we will be at the chefs theater and cookery school respectively. So grab your cameras, Panama hats and your Stephen Jones hats and let’s have a wonderful time together.

Taste Runs From 10th to 12th of November at Zayed Sports City.
