The series’ second episode, set to air on Sunday, will see Manu explore Dubai’s Souks and fish markets, source local herbs and spices from the Deira region and learn the secret to Arabic pastry making.
Manu on Dubai; “My time in Dubai was unforgettable, the experience of staying in the desert, dressed like a local, the 4×4 car ride as well as the camel back ride was fabulous. And the food!? Well, it goes without saying, it was all delicious (except the camel burger perhaps), I love the spices, the array of dishes, one coming after the other like a private mini buffet. The amazing Middle Eastern pastries and the coffee culture was quite a surprise too but most of all the people, so welcoming, polite and helpful. I would recommend to visit Dubai to everyone.”
