The Taste of Dubai in Partnership with Philips line-up just keeps expanding and this time, the organisers have confirmed that even more food industry icons are attending.

Morris is also a radio personality who has starred in multiple television series. Whereas, Impiazzi has over twenty-five years of culinary experience and he currently works at Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk as the Executive Chef since December 2020.
An entirely new experience called the ‘Taste of Hilton’ was also announced.
Being dubbed the “foodie festival within a foodie festival”, this all-new experience, located adjacent to the VIP Lounge, will be a sustainability showcase offering an exciting programme of eco-conscious food and drink demonstrations, and ‘meet the producer’ opportunities across the three-day event.
Working with the very best farm fresh local produce supplied by UAE agritech platform and local catalyst, Fresh on Table. Chefs and mixologists from Hilton’s UAE 30-strong hotel portfolio will invite guests to meet local farmers and watch as they create farm-to-plate dishes and drinks in an eco-conscious manner.
These sustainable tasters will be offered free, on a first come first served basis, to those who purchase a drink from the dedicated bar.
Sustainability at the forefront
In addition, UAE-based women owned startup, The Waste Lab, will be on hand to ensure that all compostable food and drink waste produced by the Taste of Hilton experience will be properly segregated at source, collected and then composted, closing the loop.
Attendees can also expect live music and to have their picture taken by one of the Hilton ‘Waitographers’ who will be on-hand to capture those all-important festival moments.
