The culinary festival will open on Thursday October 24 with a series of quality dinners, showcasing the talents of South African chef Reuben Riffel at Prime68, along with international chef Bobby Chinn’s signature dishes at Tong Thai.

Foodies of Dubai can also expect a signature menu by the executive chef at Masala Library by Jiggs Kalra, in consultation with an ayurvedic specialist, to design a mindful and flavourful menu.

There is a host of well-being activities over the weekend too, including a breakfast at La Farine Café & Bakery, kids’ yoga at Aqua Outdoor Pool Deck, a post-yoga family picnic with specially prepared hampers and a motivational speaking session titled ‘being the best you’ with ITV personality and author Sally Bee.
