The biggest food event to take place in Abu Dhabi each year has opened its doors to visitors.

Sampling some delicious food can be very enjoyable during a stay overseas and people currently in Abu Dhabi have the opportunity to taste some delicious treats at Gourmet Abu Dhabi.

Opening today (February 16th 2012) the event will see some amazing foods offered by a range of producers and restaurants, while guests will also have the chance to sample the offerings of a number of esteemed chefs.

There is a wide variety of food on offer, from the tasty mid-morning snack that is created for the Gourmet, Chocolate and Pastry Bunch on February 17th to the Foie Gras dinner that takes place the same day, featuring the skills of chef Bruno Menard.

Anyone who wants to learn some new skills try heading to the Chocolate and Pastry workshop, held from 09:30 local time on February 18th.

Abu Dhabi could soon be attracting more cultural visitors to the state in the coming years, as it is planning to open three new museums by 2017.
