Travellers visiting the UAE next year could have the opportunity to visit the new-look Gourmet Abu Dhabi festival.

Due to run from 5 to 20 February 2013, the event will feature a range of new culinary initiatives and a focus on traditional Emirati dining and local ingredients.

To mark its fifth anniversary, the festival will present a programme including cooking masterclasses, demonstrations and promotions from dozens of chefs, celebrities and special guests.

The Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA) said the refreshed format will take the culinary celebration to the next level and boost interest in the local dining scene.

Noura Al Dhaheri, leisure products development manager at the TCA, said: 'After four successful showings, the new-look Gourmet Abu Dhabi will ensure this culinary extravaganza continues to raise the bar and drive our hospitality sector forward.'

International travellers planning a trip to the UAE can catch flights to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways.
