By Team FoodeMag: We love this season – a bit of melancholy mixed with excitement for the coming year. What if we could continue with the celebrations from the first week of December itself, munching on gingerbread cookies and festive stollens, and ordering a propah turkey complete with delicious trimmings? Well, now you can! Team FoodeMag parks itself at The Address Dubai Marina to discover what’s brewing here the entire season. There is a lot really to talk about (and taste around) but what attracted us is that there is something spectacular for everyone – be it a visiting tourist or long time residents. Let the magic unroll!
