From market to table, discover a chef's up-close and local perspective on Dubai
Who better to acquaint you with Dubai than an expert chef who is closely in touch with the people and produce of the locality? We invite you to spend the day in the company of our chef, starting with a personalised tour of the local fish and spice market.
Take in the sounds and aromas and hear about regional ingredients and recipes. You will also take a ride in an abra, one of the small wooden ferries that cross the creek between old and new Dubai, to see local life at first hand. Come home to Raffles for a hands-on cookery lesson in our kitchens, learning the chef's tricks of the trade and secrets of true Arabic cooking. Take your recipes home as a reminder forever of your immersive Middle Eastern experience.
**Please note: two weeks' advance booking is required
