United Arab Emirates Dinner

Bailliage of United Arab Emirates
Dubai, December 12, 2022

Christmas came early
" The presentation of the dishes was a visual as well as a taste extravaganza "

Christmas came early in Dubai for Chaîne members who managed to book a seat at the festive dinner held at the Secret Winter Garden in the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, Deira.

It was a great evening with excellent cuisine of exceptional quality. Delicious starters and four different unique Christmas-style meat roasts followed by specially selected wines from the exclusive Jumeirah wine cellars.

The presentation of the dishes was a visual as well as a taste extravaganza. The service was outstanding, as expected.

The evening finished as it started, with the merry mingling of friends around tables. This time, with Christmas pudding, stollen and mince pies
