Dubai World Hospitality Championship 2014 (DWHC) kicked off on Thursday at the Dubai World Trade Centre, under the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council. The opener was attended by H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, VIPs, highly skilled chefs from around the world, prominent personalities from the artistic and sports field, and well- known media figures.

An operetta was organised today on the sidelines of day one of the Dubai World Hospitality Championship 2014. 

The operetta included four different shows and performances, attracted huge participation from school children, youth and Emirati artists. The show displayed a colorful canvass that successfully captured the true essence of authentic Emirati hospitality and promoted unique heritage and culture of the U.A.E.

Four teams competed in day one of the "International Competition", including Algeria, Bahrain, Jordan and Egypt to prepare the finest and most innovative Arabic and Gulf dishes in front of a jury of the most skilled and professional chefs and culinary experts.

The "Gulf Product Competition" received positive feedback as well based on the exceptional performance of the 308 participants who took part in the two main "Food Creations" and "Kits and Cooking Utensils" challenges. The broad participation from the Gulf made for a rich, diverse and excellent competition that highlighted the traditional flavors and culinary delights of the Gulf as well as its unique form of hospitality, all of which reflected the cultural heritage of the represented countries.

The "Emirati Competition" started off strong on the first day, showcasing the skills of 532 highly talented participants who competed in 4 categories; "Traditional Cooking," "Professional, "Amateur," and "Young." In "Traditional Cooking," the contestants prepare dishes reflecting the local style of cooking accentuated by Emirati real wood and ember flavors outdoors at the Heritage Village, one of the championship's designated venues. 

"Professional" participants, on the other hand, made innovative renditions of various appetisers, main meals, and desserts. The "Amateur" category launched strongly with contestants aged 15 to 27. Children took to the limelight as well with their dazzling performance in the "Emirati" competition where they skillfully prepared sandwiches, decorated cakes and arranged dining tables.

The Hospitality Sector Competition brings together around 700 of DWHC's total 2588 during the first day, which was marked by strong technical and aesthetic competition in various areas including ice, chocolate, fruit and sweets sculpting and wedding cake decoration.

Ahmed bin Hareb, President of DWHC, praised the performance of the participants comprising cooking and hospitality elite from the U.A.E., the GCC and the world. Bin Hareb pointed out that the enthusiasm, creativity, performance and professionalism shown by the participants on the first day confirms the successful efforts of the organising committee to create a global platform for strengthening cultural ties through the culinary arts. He added that the manner in which Emirati and Gulf cooking and hospitality were showcased would help strengthen and preserve practices in these areas for future generations to enjoy.
