From exciting masterclasses and fun dining experiences, to personal chef interactions…

Dubai Food Festival (DFF) is set to make its return from February 26 until March 14. The 18-day event will culminate some of Dubai’s best restaurants and chefs to deliver a host of exciting masterclasses, chef’s tables, demonstrations and experiences to get involved with.

Food Experiences will be available for Dubai’s food fans to get involved with throughout Dubai Food Festival, from cooking lessons from a Masterchef winner, to styling and shooting food in a photography workshop, and even experiential dining in the desert – there’s so much on offer this year.

No matter what your favourite cuisine or cooking style, there’s a masterclass available for you. Whether you’re looking to discover the secrets of sushi, how to expertly decorate a cake, or even learn the art of pizza dough throwing, there’s plenty of option to sign up and try something new this DFF.

If you’re more of an eater than a cook, try one of the chef’s table experiences. Popular restaurants BOCA, LOWE, Akiba Dori, and even desert bar Brix are all offering tasty menus prepared by their expert chefs to give you an opportunity to try their signature dishes.

Finally, you also have a selection of experiential events. These experiences are unlike anything you’ll have tried before. Whether it’s an organic tasting tour of Emirates Bio Farm, an afternoon tea with Charlotte Tilbury make-up artists, or dinner under the stars at an authentic Bedouin Village, make sure you check these out.
