Dubai, UAE: We had written about the ‘Spanish chef from Seville’ experience at Under One Roof. I had, once again, the chance to experience the Italian food experience this time, courtesy of Wafi Mall’s Mezzo.

Chef Angelo Albera made Italian cooking look so easy. A double helping of risotto as well as tiramisu resulted in a very happy and jolly Cultural Arts Traveller. Sadly, we don’t have any photos of the event. We decided to leave our camera at home. It’s quite hard balancing the camera in one hand and the delicious tiramisu on the other!

These demo classes at Under One Roof are really a great way of meeting great like-minded people, as well as getting to see in person the awesome furniture that Under One Roof make.  So if you would like to attend the next masterchef class, please write to Ms. Orla Lamb , and give the name of Jan D’Sa, from the Cultural Arts Travelogue.

As side note, Wafi has now launched a new discount card and one of the offers was to attend the Opera in the Park at the end of this month. We are hoping to be there and listen to some great music, under the stars and with a great food basket.

Still on the topic of masterchef demos and food, the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel in Bur Dubai, is organizing a Singapore food festival running from November 10th to November 25th – that’s next month.  This is to celebrate the opening of its signature restaurant Kris.

Singapore’s celebrity chef, also called the Spice Queen, Devagi Sanugam, will be conducting two master classes for aspiring gourmet chefs, on November 10th and 11th, in the morning, and it’s followed by lunch. The cost is very reasonable. Just Dhs 80.  We must try to get there.

I have fond memories of one of my favourite countries, Singapore, especially the Serangoon Road, where one can taste various cuisines from South East Asia. The other mall I loved going to was Bugis Junction and eat some of the best satays I’ve ever tasted.

The menu is going to be put together by Chef Poonsak Sumonratanakul featuring noodles, chicken rice, rojak and other Singaporean delicacies.  If you attend this food festival, could you please drop by our website and leave some comments? We’d love to hear from you.

And here questions of type such if honestly strike me not much as I wrote everything higher. It is visible you simply you don’t want to read all this. As my parrot does.
