The event which forms part of the organisation’s culinary #EnjoyGermanFood campaign, was attended by members of the local UAE press alongside social media influencers, who savored a taste of both traditional and innovative German dishes and learnt how to prepare German delicacies with Florian Falthauser, Munich’s prominent chef from Steigenberger Hotels.

Food tourism is frequently referred to as one of the most significant trends in travel. The recent survey conducted by the GNTO showed 7% of foreign holidaymakers choose to visit Germany because of the wide variety and high quality of dining, food and beverages  on offer; in fact visiting restaurants and cafés was listed as the second most popular holiday activity after sightseeing.

The latest inbound tourism figures from the Gulf region reflect that Germany is increasingly becoming a popular holiday destination for Gulf nationals. From January to June 2018 overnight stays from the region increased by 4.4% compared to the same period in 2017.

20180920_125800

On the sidelines of the event, Sigrid de Mazieres, Director for the Gulf countries at the German National Tourist Office (GNTO), an affiliate of the German National Tourist Board (GNTB), commented: “Food and drink are often the highlight – if not the main reason for holidays and short breaks. Germany as a year-round travel destination offers a wide range of travel occasions to taste and experience the German food scene. No matter, whether travellers head to our vibrant cities to dine at a fine Michelin-starred restaurant or plan to visit seasonal food events like the upcoming festive Christmas markets, there is truly something for everyone.”

Germany is a leading European travel hub, well-connected with daily flights with a duration of only about 6 hours, making the year-round travel destination a perfect spot for short breaks, too. Emirates Airline, who has helped to enhance German connectivity for more than 30 years, used the event to promote its great network to the German cities of Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. Emirates’ top representatives attending the event spoke of the world-leading airline’s most recent developments on routes connecting the UAE and the GCC region with German destinations.

Shaz Peshimam, Emirates Senior Manager for Dubai and the Northern Emirates, said: “We hope that today’s event is an eye-opening experience to the wonderful culinary adventures on offer, not only in Germany, but also during the journey on Emirates.

Germany is a very important market for us, and we place a strong focus on the authenticity of the food we serve onboard to our four gateways in Germany including Frankfurt, Munich, Düsseldorf and Hamburg. Emirates also prides itself as a global airline with seasonal menus created for celebrations like Oktoberfest, coming up in a few days. During Oktoberfest, we will be offering an enhanced range of German delicacies across selected flights, so customers across all classes can kick off the Oktoberfest celebrations on board with a specially created menu.”

Southern Germany, and particularly Munich has traditionally been the hot spot for most GCC travellers. To gain insight into Bavaria’s special food traditions, participants in the event were invited to take part in decorating Gingerbread hearts, typical for Munich, and to learn to prepare the Bavarian cheese delicacy, Obatzda as well as pretzels.

“Munich provides an inspiration for leading chefs, with the Bavarian capital topping the gourmet charts year after year”, said Robert Leckel – Manager Trade and Media Relations Middle East, Russia and Eastern Europe from the Munich Tourist Board. He revealed that, “a total of eight Munich restaurants have scored top marks in the 2018 edition of the Gault-Millau gourmet guide. The state capital is also home to one of Germany’s eleven three-star Michelin chefs, four two-star venues and six other Munich restaurants have been awarded one Michelin star.”

Stephen Meredith, General Manager of Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay, where the event was held, said: “We are extremely honored to have been chosen to partner with the German National Tourism Office, Emirates Airline and Munich Tourism for this special event presenting the best of ‘Culinary Germany’ to the Middle East.”

Additionally, Meredith announced an exciting line-up of events and gatherings that bring a taste of ‘Culinary Germany’ to the local residents of the UAE. “With one of the world’s largest and well know festivals about to take place in Germany”, he said, “we are proud to continue bringing this tradition to Dubai with our own Oktoberfest, starting in just few days at our Brothaus Biergarten terrace.

Until the end of October we will wave the German flag, serving well-known German favourites, and celebrating our rich culinary heritage. We look forward to welcoming guests to the cheerful ambience of our biergarten for some frosty hops, and hearty Bavarian fare.”

The event concluded with a well-received raffle draw, where lucky winners were given Emirates’ flight tickets and Steigenberger hotel vouchers for Dubai and Munich.

No arguing that a healthy beauty ritual starts with caring for the skin and there is just not enough you can do keep you skins upkeep in great shape…

Step 1 – Cleansing

Cleansing step helps wash off anymake-up, cream, dust and residue to ensure skin is fully clean before applying a whole line of skincare products. The Chia seed cleansing foam penetrates deep into the skin to clean from within.

CHIA SEED FRESH CLEANSING FOAM (Dhs. 63)

Step 2 – Toning

Follow the cleansing action with a toner that will help balance the phlevel on your skin and take away any impurities and minimizes pores. Usually the textures of toners are watery, so it creates a hydrating effect on the skin. When a toner is used with cotton pads, it helps remove excessive impurities and dirt.

Step 3 – Serum

A step you would not want to skip. Made up of smaller molecules, serums deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This is why serums are great for treating specific skincare concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, breakouts or wrinkles.

WHITE SEED BRIGHTENING SERUM (Dhs. 174)

Step 4 – Emulsion

Emulsions are then applied above the serum. While lotions consist of a thicker texture, emulsions are lighter in texture and more water based. Emulsions and lotions are the lighter versions of creams and used to moisturize and soften the skin. In the mornings, emulsion may be used as a daytime moisturizer and a cream for a night time moisturizer.

Step 5 – Face Cream

Facial creams provide a type of barrier that moisturizes the skin and keeps all the nutrients from all of the above products in place.
Creams are also one of the products with the highest concentration among the line, which means they don’t evaporate easily and keeps the nutrients on the skin for a longer period of time.

YEHWADAM REVITALIZING CREAM (Dhs. 263)

Step 6 – Sleep Mask

Finally to top everything off and right before you head for your beauty sleep, apply a sleeping mask. Sleeping masks work to repair your skin throughout the night so you’ll wake up to younger, fresher looking skin.

 Natural Eyebrows

The Korean eyebrow look is generally straight with little to no arch that creates a softer, more natural appeal. Choosing the color of your eyebrow pencil very important and should match the color of you your hair always.

DESIGNING EYEBROW PENCIL (Dhs 32)Smiling Eyes

Winged eyeliner is a thing of the past; smiling eyes are what’s new.Smiling eyes can be created by drawling a thin line with little to no wing on your eyelid. Soft color eye shadows can then be used to complete the subtle look. The use of double eye lid tape is used to create the illusion of your eyes looking bigger than they actually are.

INKGEL PENCIL EYELINER (Dhs. 63)

Glass Skin

The popular glass skin trend continues well into 2019 and can be achievedwith utmost ease. Follow the skincare routine with the application of either a CC oil control cushion or the Ink lasting foundation for a nice dewy glow effect on the skin. Mix a little crème in the foundation for flawless looking skin

TFS OIL CONTROL WATER CUSHION SPF50+ PA+++ (Dhs. 132)

Gradient Lips

Lips are the center of attention and they can completely change your look. A popular K-beauty trend is the “gradient lip” effect where lips are colored with two tones. One lighter tone generally applied on the full lips, and a darker shade applied on the center of the lips for an irresistible pout.

VDIVOV Lip Stick (Dhs. 120)

Non-touring

Now introducing a new way to contour your face! While regular contouring is known for its bold shadings, baking, and highlighting techniques, non-touring is a way to showcase highlighters and illuminators at its best.

Rather than using a shading pact to create depth with shadows on the face, use only a highlighter on light-reflecting areas and a lighter coverage base to create a softer and natural look.

Mask & Chill

We just cannot talk about Korean beauty without the mention of sheet masks. The Face Shop has an endless range of masks on offer from sheet to cream and peel off variants.

These naturally derived sheet masks come with high adhesiveness and are formulated with mild ingredients that come in three types; essence water, serum, and emulsion.
