Dubai, 18 January 2016: Jumeirah Emirates Towers will celebrate all things Canadian at Mundo this month – the opening salvo in a year-long series of country-themed culinary promotions dubbed ‘The JET Set’ taking place across the five-star hotel’s extensive portfolio of world-class hospitality outlets.
Mundo, the property’s new, 142-seat interactive global dining restaurant, will celebrate Air Canada’s new direct Toronto-Dubai services with a diverse calendar of Canada-inspired promotions starting with a reception last night (17 January) hosted by the Consulate of Canada.
The event united members of the Canadian Business Council, Air Canada representatives and customers, VIP guests of Jumeirah Emirates Towers and Canadians residing in the UAE.
"We are really excited that the world-class food and beverage team from Jumeirah Emirates Towers are using outstanding Canadian ingredients. Quality is in our nature." said His Excellency Emmanuel Kamarianakis, the Consul General of Canada in Dubai.
During Canadian month, diners can experience one-off culinary events including All Things Poutine and Creamery Winery Smokery - a spotlight of Canada’s finest smoked meats and cheeses expertly paired with Canadian wines, Mission Hills and Peller Estates.
Later in the Canadian Month calendar, renowned Canadian chefs Jason Parsons and Maurice Desharnais will dissect Canadian cuisine during an interactive cooking demonstration on Tuesday 2 February, followed by a sumptuous 3-course dinner prepared by the expert duo.
“Canadian month marks the first promotion in an exciting series of global and diverse, diner-driven culinary events coming to Jumeirah Emirates Towers in 2016,” said Sven Wiedenhaupt, General Manager, Jumeirah Emirates Towers. “Kicking ‘The JET Set’ promotions off with Canadian Month aligns with our objective to create tailored culinary events which inject vitality into the domestic dining scene and simultaneously augment the signature international cuisine available at Mundo and elsewhere across the property.”
