World record attempt taking place in Abu Dhabi

World of Food Abu Dhabi is back this weekend.

Part of Abu Dhabi Culinary Season, supported by the Department of Culture & Tourism - Abu Dhabi, runs until December 9 at Umm Al Emarat Park.

As well as the usual mix of street foods and celebrity chef appearances there's also an world record attempt taking place.

The food stands are powered by the Armed Forces Officers Club kitchens and will offer funky items from chicken donuts, to sushi rice burgers, risotto with basil ice-cream, beef lollipops, waffle schnitzel, choc hot dogs and loads more.

Famous chefs appearing include Ghada el Tally and winner of Masterchef India Nikita Ghandi, Claude Taffarello from France, Julia Komp from Germany and Denis Puchert from Switzerland.

Organisers Purple Kitchen Events have teamed up with the Emirates Culinary Guild and Madinat Jumeirah Conference & Incentives to set the stage for another food Guinness World Record.

Supported by the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA) and Umm Al Emarat Park, on the evening of Saturday December 7, the largest variety of desserts will be created, featuring more than 2,400 unique desserts offering more than 10,000 servings, and each dessert must have two different ingredients.

“The logistics involved must be perfect,” says chef Uwe Micheel, president of the Emirates Culinary Guild and director of kitchens at Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek.

“We have a fixed window to collect all of the desserts into our refrigerated trucks, they are really coming from all across the UAE. We then have a three hour window to present, audit and consume in order to break the world record while meeting food hygiene standards," he adds.

For Dhs10 you'll be able to choose two of the massive selection to try.
