Session No. 119 

Living in the UAE is like living with a confluence of myriad different cultures, which we all learn to embrace enthusiastically. But each of us has special bonds with our home country, unique memories that hold significance for us. Food is an important part of that bond, a nostalgic link to our home countries and a way of keeping our heritage and traditions alive.

In this session, 12 expat women living in the UAE come together to celebrate their diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds and their personal relationship to the recipes they love. In the process of writing their book Memorable Flavours together, they also share what they’ve learned from each other and how that expands their experiences. Join a discussion that will be a real treat for anyone wishing to take a trip down memory lane and learn about other cultures and food traditions.
