Previous years have clearly displayed the sheer diversity of Dubai’s culinary offerings. Of course, with over 200 foreign nationalities living in the UAE it comes as no surprise that this is the case. Each nationality brings with them their own unique application of the art of cooking which in turn is derived from centuries of cultural history that is passed on from generation to generation. These unique styles come into contact with each other and the result is the wondrous melting pot of culinary excellence that currently exists in Dubai. It is precisely this phenomenon of ‘syncretic gastronomy’ that the Dubai Food Festival 2018 attempts to highlight!
