  • Brunch with a MasterChef

    Event update: Brunch with a MasterChef will now place in Karam Al Bahr, InterContinental Hotel, Dubai Festival City.

    Start your festival Saturday the right way with 2017 MasterChef winner Saliha Mahmood Ahmed (Khazana) and be treated to a spread of dishes inspired by the rich cultural heritage of the Indian subcontinent and her own travels in the region. She will speak with Peyman Parham Al Awadhi about her incredible journey since MasterChef, how food and culture so easily intersect, and what it means to cook with love and passion. Brunch-goers will also receive a take-home jar of her granola, straight from the pages of her new cookbook, The Kitchen Prescription.
