Dubai Food Festival "Taste of Dubai"

Most waited by all foodies event in Dubai. Unfortunately i could not go to it last year - so this year i panned my visit way ahead of time! It started on Thursday 3rd at 1 pm and I was there by 2 pm!! Early you say - i will too - it was still kind off "under construction" (as everything in Dubai).
 But i had my reason to head there so early - reason is early sign up for cooking classes! The one thing i was looking forward to so much. Miele hosted their cooking school second year in a row and they are very professional. Hope they will open soon permanent cooking school here in Dubai.
That days - was quite and I managed to sign up for 3 classes. First I signed up myself and Khaled for separate tables to make pan-seered Sea Bass with cauliflower puree. It turned out really beautiful for me and fire-like experience for Khaled - his pans were smoking black and Cheef had to come down to remove burning pans and discard the oil.

I will add recipe for this beauty in the next post. Really simple and quick!
Next class we had - right after this one - was "Duck Breast with Warm Lentil Salad and Orange Seared Chicory". We did this class together on the same table and nothing went n fire, thank god, this time.
