It’s the season of food festivals…and competitions! Next month sees the launch of a new marketing platform for a trio of culinary events in the capital – the Abu Dhabi Food Festival, which runs from the 5th – 21st February.

The existing Gourmet Abu Dhabi remains as one of the three events from the 11th to the 20th February, however the festival will also showcase Emirati cuisine with cooking workshops and a souk (Emirati Kitchen from 5th – 7th February), whilst also bringing a caravan of local and international food trucks (Street Feast from 5th – 21st February).

So like last year, we have a couple of generous prizes up for grabs for FooDiva readers across the UAE:

  1. Dinner at The Forge restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal on 12th February, along with entry tickets and cooking master classes at the Emirati Kitchen from 5th – 7th February – all events are for two people.
  2. A gourmet barbeque night at La Piscine in Al Raha Beach hotel on 12th February, along with entry tickets and cooking master classes at the Emirati Kitchen from 5th – 7th February – all events are for two people.

All you need to do to enter, is name your favourite Emirati dish, explaining why. Leave your answer as a comment on this post AND using the submission form below. You can increase your chances of winning by commenting and sharing the competition post on FooDiva’s Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram channels. Don’t forget to mention @visitabudhabi and hashtag #inabudhabi.

The giveaway competition closes on 2nd February when the clock strikes midnight, and two winners will be picked randomly (through random.org) on 3rd February. You will have 24 hours to claim your prizes otherwise we’ll have to select other winners.

    Khabeesa – I love sweets and especially its creaminess and crumbliness.

    Jesheed is my favorite Emirati dish: the mixture of shark meat with Arabic spices, lemon and the rice is simply delicious.
