Tasting the Emirates

I have written earlier on this site about the need for more Emirati chefs and greater opportunity for UAE residents and tourists to experience Emirati food.

It was a pleasant surprise to discover the blog, ‘Arab Mania’ and today’s post entitled, ‘Tasting Emaraati Traditional Food’.

The blog writer, described as a ‘proud humble Muslim wife who enjoys what is good’, has brief descriptions and pictures of popular dishes served in the Emirates.

These dishes include:

* Raqaq (made from soft unleavened dough)

* Shobab (traditional Bedouin bread)

* Al Harees (meat and wheat dish)

And, so many more delicious dishes.

Thank you for the posting. Shukran.
