A long overdue update

Sometimes all exiting things come together…. I have been quite busy at work.
So now finally after a while away from posting blogs let me share with you some impressions of my latest activities – between Dubai and Bavaria, again!

Recent filming at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on The Palm for Studio One….

Here the sunset opposite the hotel when I arrived for the filming, packed with ingredients and some inevitable kitchen utensils I can’t live or cook without –
My favorite dish, with deep purple colors had to be featured, of course: Purple potato mash

topped with Miso Beetroot and almond foam – delicious, light, vegetarian food!

Then The Caterer ME Chefs and Ingredients Forum held at Madinat Jumeirah took place where I had the honour to be amongst the speakers.

After that I prepared for the Jumeirah Munich Culinary Week, 10 fantastic days in my beloved Bavaria, filled with meeting great people, cooking good food, and bringing arabian flavors and the unique hospitality of our Jumeirah hotels spread across the globe to Germany.
Of course extra soft and delicious dates from Dubai were a must! Our luggage was filled with baklava, sumac, arabic coffee ingredients and many things more we believed we wouldn’t get in Bavaria in the desired quality…

Benvenuti a Roma

Travelling again! This time it is for work. But you still can be a little bit jealous because I am in beautiful Italy. Rome in spring is magic in particular, and I feel very lucky to work for a couple of days in our company’s new hotel, the Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto.
Very exciting! Sometimes the best things come unexpected.

This place is so elegant, intimate, with Art Deco interior, great location near to the Villa Borghese Park and the Spanish Steps – I love it. Enjoy my first impressions…more to come soon.
