Because cheese is always a good idea…

If you’re deep into any kind of #cleaneating phase for the next month, then avert your eyes (in fact, just scoot on over to our vegan round-up instead). For everyone else, there’s cheese. Lots and lots of lovely melted cheese. To help you live your best life, here are four of Dubai’s best cheese fondue and raclette venues…
