The annual event will be held as part of the Gulf Food 2013 that attracts participants from more than 88 countries. Over 1300 chefs from various hotels are expected to submit their entries. Each dish will be judged on use of ingredients, originality, hygiene, presentation, creativity, food wastage, taste and table display.
Led by Executive Chef Youssef Darwish, who is also one of the marshals this year, the team from Taj Palace Dubai will compete in 12 categories ranging from canapés to vegetable and fruit carving, gourmet dinner and Arabic feast among others.
Last year, the Taj Palace Dubai had fared exceedingly well at the competition winning several awards. According to Chef Youssef Darwish, “Emirates International Salon Culinaire competition is celebration of culinary art and a great platform to see tradition and innovation come together.”
Part of the renowned Taj Group of Hotels, the Taj Palace Dubai is conveniently located in the heart of Deira, minutes from Dubai International Airport, and features 159 rooms and suites, 90 ServicedApartments and a highly acclaimed spa. With a delightful choice of award-winning restaurants, Taj Palace Dubai is where flavors come to life. Dining here only once is not enough. Whether it is an authentic Arabian buffet at Al Waha, a hearty international lunch at Le Rendezvous, an exotic Asian dinner at Sakura or an indulgent Indian meal at Handi, every meal is magical.
