What started out as one man’s fas­ci­na­tion has now be­come the UAE’S pas­sion ( Kitchen Con­fi­den­tial, Feb 10). Gau­rav Tan­don set up the UAE’S first food re­al­ity show, and to­day, i t is on the verge of en­ter­ing a sixth sea­son. It’s cel­e­bra­tion time, and the cre­ators of the show must be so proud of this mo­ment. Hav­ing said that, the show must have greater fo­cus on l ocal cuisines, and also i ncul­cate Arab cul­ture and val­ues that so ev­i­dently man­i­fest them­selves i n the re­gion’s food. That way, it will be­come more UAE- cen­tric. All the best, Food­shala! Keep cook­ing up a good menu.

Dubai has had no dearth of in­cred­i­ble food truck fes­ti­vals of late, and Truck­ers DXB is one of them. I checked out their Food Truck JAM at Emi­rates Golf Club last Satur­day and was amazed by the scene — bal­loons, gi­ant bub­bles, ham­mocks, twin­kle lights and re­ally good music and food. What’s not to love? — Janice Ro­drigues
