Cheese connoisseurs can rejoice as SOPEXA, the international partner of food and beverage companies, is launching the largest cheese event of its kind in the Middle East, as part of this year’s Dubai Food Festival.
The Dubai Cheese Fest will take place at the stunning Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, from 7.00pm on 22nd February and 12.00noon on 23rd February 2019.
Between demos and cooking sessions, visitors can indulge in traditional cheese-based dishes from Latin America, Italy, Eastern Europe, Greece, India and the Middle East amongst others, as they amble dozens of exhibitor booths. They will also have the opportunity to sample produce from well-known cheese producers including Soignon goat cheese or discover cheeses from as far away as New Zealand.
Demonstrating the versatility of different types of cheese, the festival will showcase the talents of experts such as cheese word champion Fabien Degoulet, award-winning cheesemonger Francois Robin, Indian artisan cheesemaker Mansi Jasani and critically acclaimed chef Mohanad Alshamali from BHAR, Renaissance Hotel Dubai. They will be creating unique and original pairings with unconventional ingredients from around the world.
While the adults enjoy a line-up of irresistible pairings, families can also keep the kids entertained all day long at the kids’ corner and CheeseArt drawing area.
