President Message



Dear fellow chefs, ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the November issue of our Gulf Gourmet. Starting this month, things are going to get busy. The holiday season and big events across the country will combine with good programs for educational and social events. 

Young chefs will visit the East Fish premises to get a close look at the seafood trade.  Our friend and partner, Nestle Professional, have two nutritional seminars planned in the coming days. I attended the seminar last September and I highly recommend this course for young chefs that want to learn. It is even great for seniors as a refresher course. 

Konstantina Bouman has a masterclass of European food products rice, fruits and juices on November 10, 13 and 14 respectively.
We are working in full swing for World of Food Abu Dhabi, SIAL Abu Dhabi and the planning of ExpoCulinaire with our Salon Culinaire from March 3-5, 2020.
World of Food Abu Dhabi will feature celebrity chefs from different counties presenting their signature dishes on stage as well as wild street food dishes in their respective stations. The main event will be the attempt to break the Guinness World Record. We are still open for partners to help us with the desserts. The plan is to prepare and display 2,500 different desserts, which will then be consumed by the public in the Mother of Nation Park in Abu Dhabi. Contact me if you are interested at
The registration for La Cuisine Du SIAL is open. We have spaces in all classes. The live classes are filling up, so register soon.
See you all in Abu Dhabi!
