The Diplo­matic Club hosted the third edi­tion of the Ecuado­rian Food Fes­ti­val ear­lier this month along with the Em­bassy of the Repub­lic of Ecuador.

The fes­ti­val opened with a wel­come speech from HE Ka­balan Abi Saab, Am­bas­sador of Ecuador to Qatar, who was de­lighted that Ecuado­rian cui­sine could be cel­e­brated and could bring global cul­tures to cel­e­brate Ecuador. He said: “The peo­ple around the world have many ways to ex­press their cul­ture, and cui­sine is one of the best ways to do it. Our cul­ture is marked by its di­ver­sity of lan­guage, dress, mu­sic, art, lit­er­a­ture, po­etry, and of course gas­tron­omy. The Ecuado­rian ta­ble can be­come a mul­ti­coloured, mul­ti­fla­vored and mul­ti­cul­tural mo­saic; it all de­pends on what kind of culi­nary voy­age you wish to take.” Gen­eral Man­ager Aysha Al Mar­zouqi said: “Achieve­ment of this food tri­umph has come through con­stant trial and er­ror of the chefs at The Diplo­matic Club who have trained with Chef Dayana for the past few weeks. The col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Em­bassy of the Repub­lic of Ecuador and The Diplo­matic Club is in­deed a fruit­ful one.”
