Competition ~ Competition ~ Join the FoodeMag Mother of Chef Competition 2017!

By Team FoodeMag: Every day calls for a celebration of mothers around the world, and designating one day of the year to that special woman doesn’t do justice to the persona that she is. But dedicating a day in honour of a special person or occasion does force us to take a moment and focus our attention to that person or the occasion and that is really a wonderful thing. We are taking this opportunity to call all the Chefs in the UAE this Mother’s Day to salute the real chef who probably initiated you into cooking – your Mama! Is there a recipe in your restaurant menu which you have learnt from your mama? Share with us and join the FoodeMag Mother of Chef Competition 2017!

While Mother’s Day is celebrated on 21st March in many countries around our MENA region – Bahrain, Comoros, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the U.A.E and others, celebration continues across the week with the UK and a few other countries dedicating 26th March to mark this occasion.
