I like to thank all the chefs and especially Chef Uwe Faust, Group Culinary Director, Jumeirah Group for his kind support”, added WG Magazines Managing director/editor Fabian deCastro.

The concept of this event is to deliver the best brunch experience to the all the expats who are living in Dubai, giving them the chance without taking a taxi to try 24 signatures in just one location.
