BBC Good Food Show Dubai was a 3 day event held at World Trade Centre, Dubai. From a super theatre that hosted 6 amazing Chefs to a cake design competition to book signing & interaction with the Chefs, the show seems to have been a super success.
This show was sponsored by known brands in the region including Maggi, Teka, Jones the grocer, Lurpak, Starbucks and more! We saw the sponsors with exhibit stands and the guests seem to be quite excited about some exclusive offerings and discounts on the day. The retail area was quite interesting but nothing exciting enough for me to buy!
Our tickets included entry to the VIP lounge powered by Indigo Living lounge, where we got a beverage and a cosy area to rest at. This seemed like a pure sales tactic from Indigo, and nothing great really. But the furniture display was quite interesting, though I’m not sure influential enough for a customer to buy.
Paul Hollywood, infamous judge on The Great British Bake Off alongside Mary Berry. He enthralled the audience with 2 dishes that he made look easy peasy! But gave some tricks & tips that we could take home. Hope to make the most of the inspiration from the show to my own kitchen soon enough!
P.S. : I have never baked by myself 😀 any more beginners tips are welcome. I always get cold feet when I need to attempt baking and always land up cooking instead
The most exciting part of the evening was when we won a free license from MMI, which was quite unbelievable, as I am hardly ever lucky to win at spin-and-wins! The challenging part is to convert it within 10 days with all the required documents within 10 days!!
The cake displays were really cool and the winning cake design by Rowena Gratel was truly deserving, though I could not get the best shot of all the cakes. I really enjoyed the pretty giveaway by Teaforte, the tea is a must try!
Wish I could’ve witnessed the other chefs as well, but it was also exciting to just bump into Chef Atul Kochhar.
To sum it up, I’m glad we could spend a couple of hours here, spending time and interacting with many other foodies !
