Al Dente, the signature Italian restaurant of the Coral Beach Resort Sharjah, was awarded a trophy for ‘culinary excellence’ at the 6th edition of the Al Qasba Food Festival that was held at Al Qasba - Sharjah’s cultural hub and leisure destination from March 22 to 31.
The hotel, which was a Hospitality Sponsor of the highly popular event, presented a beautifulbanquet at the SadiaChef Theatre, which was a daily activity during the 10-day gourmet fest.
“The award recognises the services we rendered as hospitality sponsor and the culinary excellence of our chefs for the banquet they presented. It’s a huge honour and we are proud we have been able to contribute to the cause of tourism in Sharjah. We see our hotel as an integral part of the cultural, leisure, entertainment and sports scene in the emirate and have always used our extensive facilities to support and sponsor activities in all these areas, whether it is a food festival, tennis tourney or health and wellness event,” says Regional General Manager Jean Pierre Simon.
“The festival, which was launched in 2007, is proving to be enormously popular judging by the growing crowds in each successive year. The theme this year was ‘Culinary Talents’, the focus being on Emirati cuisine, and our chefs were among the exceptional group of elite chefs from branded hotels and restaurants in the UAE who exhibited their culinary skills at the Chef Theatre with their specialty dishes. They really did us proud and their success has focused attention on the fine dining options we offer,”Mr Simon acknowledges.
The Chef Theatre hosted chef shows, competitions, cooking workshops and food carving displays, while the ‘Tikka Cooking School’ hosted specialist culinary workshops for adults and children.
