The Middle East, and especially Dubai, is an important destination for the gourmet and connoisseurs of fine food and dining. Recent oil wealth, population growth and diversity, combined with the rapid expansion of the tourism and hospitality trade have combined to create a highly lucrative market for suppliers of premium and speciality foods.
