Dubai provided the backdrop for the latest episode of MasterChef Australia which was aired over the weekend.
Qantas flew the MasterChef Australia production to Dubai to participate in cooking challenges that included a traditional Arabian feast served to guests at the Al Waha Desert Camp and a three course meal at the iconic Atlantis The Palm.
MasterChef Australia judge Matt Preston said the emirate was a new and exciting destination for this year's international challenge.
"Dubai provided a spectacular backdrop for the tough challenges of this year's international trip. What a journey for our contestants; from the tradition of the souk and cooking a desert feast to running a fine dining restaurant complete with an audience of 65,000 sea creatures. A most memorable time,” said Preston.
Qantas Group executive brand, marketing and corporate affairs, Olivia Wirth added: "The Middle East is a key international market for Qantas. Since launching services there in March this year, we have flown over half a million passengers between Australia and Dubai,” said Wirth.
"We have worked with our partners Emirates and Dubai's Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing to support coverage of Dubai's wonderful food experiences and we look forward to doing more in future to promote Dubai as a hotspot for Australian travellers.” – 7Days
