Chef Marta Yanc, founder of Marta's Kitchen and well-known Dubai TV culinary personality, has partnered up with some of the region’s leading chefs and food experts to launch the Culinary Forum.

The Forum aims to give the general public a chance to get up close and personal with some of the region's finest chef in an educational and interactive masterclass.

“This is not about chefs leading a demonstration from a podium with a microphone: iit’s about getting round a table with a highly reputed chef or culinary expert, where everyone gets their hands dirty,” Yanci said.

Award-winning maître de cuisine Alexandre Pernetta, celebrity chef Sameer Miglani, food connoisseur Dima Sharif, chef Salvatore Silvestrino of the Moevenpick Dubai and Marta Yanci herself are just some of the professionals who will share their expertise with participants in the forum.

Sessions will be held in a new dedicated space in the Marta’s Kitchen headquarters, Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

Tavola kitchenware supplier is sponsoring the forum, which starts on May 15, 2012 with a tapas programme.
