The Hotel Show Dubai has announced The Waterfront Market, Dubai’s premier fresh food supplier and the region’s largest fish and seafood market, as an exclusive supplier of all fish and seafood ingredients to chefs participating at the Chefs Table competition at the 21st edition of the trade show this year.
Hailed as a lifeline for the hospitality industry during the pandemic, the Waterfront Market will ensure chefs and their teams are using the freshest and best quality seafood products during the live and in-person event running from May 31 – June 2. Additionally, each fish course that participating culinary chefs will be preparing at the Hotel Show Dubai will also be used in an e-recipe book, available for download from The Hotel Show Dubai and The Waterfront Market websites.
The Waterfront Market showcases over 350 species of fish from the region and around the world. The Waterfront Market takes pride in having a dedicated section for locally produced products, as part of a growing and determined effort to support and nurture the local F&B industry in the UAE.
In advance of the show, Chef Chris, resident chef at The Waterfront Market took center stage alongside President of the Emirates Culinary Guild, Chef Uwe Micheel to guide local industry chefs and members of the Emirates Culinary Guild on an exclusive, engaging and in-depth tour through the market.
