A favourite among the city’s food-loving crowd, Dubai Food Festival will run from February 20 until March 7. The annual celebration of all things gastronomy brings together international talent in the culinary universe and homegrown concepts for a range of family-friendly events around the city. It is a chance for Dubai’s gourmands to travel the world through food, sampling treats from an array of global cultures. One of the event’s biggest draws, the Beach Canteen is set to return at Jumeirah Beach with its array of street food stalls and gourmet cuisine. Elsewhere in the city, foodies can enjoy curated fine-dining experiences, workshops and culinary tours.
