Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar Airways are preparing to host a culinary sensation next week with the fourth edition of the Qatar International Food Festival (QIFF) at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) Park on Doha’s waterfront from  March 28 – 31.

Over four days of family fun and entertainment with gastronomic alfresco eating, drinking and cooking, QIFF will tempt visitors’ taste buds with samples of delicious 5 star cuisine from around the world.  Internationally renowned chefs will join many of Doha’s finest hotels and restaurants to celebrate fine dining with the freshest ingredients and latest food trends, as well as healthy eating options in Qatar’s capital city.

This year, QIFF is cooking a feast for the senses up high and at sea, namely the breathtaking dining experience, ‘Dinner in the Sky’ operated by W Hotel and Residences Doha, staged 40 metres in the air.  Dining at sea in gentle drifting BBQ Donut crafts from The Diplomatic Club, Doha will also offer that special wow factor with flaming barbecue menus.

QIFF is also introducing Qatar Airways’ Cooking Theatre where award-winning celebrity TV chefs, Ramzi Choueiri, from Lebanon, and Vineet Bhatia, from India, will be joined by Grand Hyatt Doha’s Chef David Okuda demonstrating a few of their signature dishes. German Junior Master Cher, Valentin Krapf, will also be on hand to show youngsters how to cook up a menu of healthy snacks and meals.

This year’s festival is on track to deliver a brand new mouth-watering event to set taste buds tingling in Doha’s beautifully landscaped waterfront MIA Park.

Entry to the event is free. Vouchers for food and drink at the festival will be sold on site at the event.
