Travellers on a holiday in Dubai next month may be keen to experience the emirate’s annual two-week food festival.

Showcasing the culinary expertise of more than 20 restaurants across Dubai, the festival will also offer a number of cuisines and culinary activities from around the world, Al Bawaba has reported.

Fans of sweet treats will be keen to check out the festival’s attempt to break the world record for the largest dessert buffet. The buffet, which is to be held on February 13th, will feature 2009 different deserts and is part of a new festival initiative entitled Dubai Records.

Beginning February 1st, the Dubai Food Festival 2008 features a number of other events – including Buffet Tuesdays, Sampling Sundays, competitions, a demonstration area and a food market – during its two-week run.

Writing for the Times last month, Howard Jacobson stated that his holiday in Dubai was calm and relaxing. He marvelled at the quiet, as well as the fact that the city seems to be “getting newer every minute”.
