Again, thanks to this platform, I have had the opportunity to meet some top-notch chefs who were kind enough to give me their time to say a few words for DIAF. Please visit the ‘Taste’ section to watch more interviews. So, when I ask them this question, ‘Which cuisine would you choose if you were to open a restaurant of your own in Dubai?’, it gets them on the spot. We are all too spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in Dubai. And when you are asked to vote for your favorite restaurant, how do you choose? Well, Dubai’s eating out population seems to know their food and who they think, is well, the best!
The food at the What’s On 2011 Awards was to die for. From a variety of specialty cheeses on display to ‘interactive cheese stations’ to live cooking stations, several types of cakes and desserts, this was a gastronome’s paradise. Celebrating its 10th year now, the annual What’s On Awards is the UAE’s only restaurant and entertainment awards voted entirely by the public.
Some of the award categories and their winners are captured for you in this video, along with interviews by Chef Emiliano Bernasconi, Executive Chef, Armani Hotel and Mr. Franck Royer, Executive Assistant Manager, Al Bustan Rotana.
