7 top budget tips for Dubai families
Make seven simple lifestyle changes and you could save Dhs24,000
Give up: Weekly dinner delivery for two at Dhs5200 per year (Dhs100 x 52)
Swap for: Monthly cookery course with L’Atelier des Chefs at Dhs3000 (Dhs350 x 12)
With restaurant menus slotted under our doors on a seemingly daily basis and fast, hectic lifestyles, we all know how tempting it is to pick up the phone and order our dinner to be delivered to our door pronto. When we order several times a week at roughly Dhs100 a pop, however, it can send the family budget rocketing.
Give up just one delivery every week and you could be saving a staggering Dhs5200 per year – so why not put the extra cash to good use and enroll yourself on a gourmet cookery course once a month to boost your repertoire in the kitchen?
L’Atelier des Chefs offers a wide choice of interactive classes, all taken by professional chefs who will guide you through every step of the menu. Current classes include ‘Profiteroles Singing’, ‘Flavours of Italia’, ‘Impress your Guests’ and ‘Make your own burgers’, with the schedule changing on a monthly basis to build your skills quickly.
The classes are suitable for everybody, from complete novices to experienced cooks – and better still, every session concludes with the chance to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
