Hollywood celebs John Cusack and Jesse Metcalfe are making an appearance at the Abu Dhabi Food Festival next month.

Hosted from December 5 to 23, the event is split into three parts and includes Gourmet Abu Dhabi, Street Feast, and for the first time, the SIAL trade fair.

The celebrities will be making an appearance at Gourmet Abu Dhabi, at special dining events. Metcalfe will be making an appearance at Catch in the Nation Riviera on December 9. He’s best-known for his breakout role opposite Eva Longoria in Desperate Housewives and the 2006 film John Tucker Must Die.

Fans of movie star John Cusack can share a table with the star on December 16, at the Emirates Palace’s presidential suite. He’ll also attend a dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi the following night on December 17.

“We are honoured to be hosting both actors, and their involvement adds another element to an event that is truly international in scope and appeal,” added Sultan Al Dhaheri, Acting Executive Director Tourism Sector, TCA Abu Dhabi. “We know adding both John Cusack and Jesse Metcalfe to this year’s ADFF will give fans of both food and film a huge thrill.”
