Last month we attended a spectacular event at Palazzo Versace Hotel Dubai. Fatima Goga Salya launches her cookbook ‘A Feast For Friends’.
Evening was loaded with entertainment and generously flowing canapés & drinks which was later followed by grand buffet dinner.
The grand launch of the cookbook , speech by Fatima Goga Salya , cake cutting, live entertainment , lucky draws & giveaways were the highlights of the event. The luxurious event was attended by media, bloggers & special guests.
Fatima has been a resident of Dubai for the past 13 years where she moved after her marriage. She was born in Greater London and then moved to Lancashire where she had been living before moving to Dubai.
Fatima has no formal culinary education but a deep set passion and love for cooking since she was young led her to cook meals for friends and family and experiment with different cuisines. Over the years she has been experimenting with cuisines from all over the world.
Having constantly being asked for her recipes, she decided to put a compilation of her most in demand recipes into a book that will be culinary journey and delight. Some time ago she went on a trip to Lesvos in Greece to help the refugees in various ways. This has inspired her to use the proceeds of this recipe book for a worthy cause.
She is also hoping to launch an app within the next year which will contain many new and exciting recipes, including a vegetarian section. She hopes to continue to experiment with recipes of dishes from the world over.
The proceeds will be given to various worthy causes benefitting underprivileged children, & women.
