A great way to keep the little ones entertained…

Schools out! And that means there’s plenty of summer activities going around in Dubai for the little ones to take up.

However, if your child is an aspiring culinary genius, then consider taking them to one of these spots in Dubai where they will hone their talents and become a little master chef.

Here are 3 spots in Dubai where young budding chefs can cook up a storm.
