Cooking Demo, Mosque, Arabic Coffee & Dates | Sharjah/Dubai Vlog 1

  • If you've been following me on social media, you will know that I recently went to the United Arab Emirates! I was invited to do cooking demos based on my cookbook at the Sharjah International Book Fair, but on top of that, I got to do some sightseeing in Sharjah, Dubai AND even a little bit of Abu Dhabi!
    In this video I share with you my first couple of days in Sharjah, which is just right next door to Dubai.
    Day 1: We start out at the beautiful hotel (Sheraton) where I experienced an orange coconut! Met some fans, tasted delicious Middle Eastern dips at the lunch buffet, and then headed off to the book fair for my demo.
    Day 2: We visited the largest and most famous mosque in Sharjah. This is where I discovered Arabic coffee, and realized what really good dates should actually taste like!
