Dubai Tourism recently invited me to the Dubai Food Festival – what a magical and enchanting experience! One afternoon we wondered off to the Dubai Creek and sat down at a little restaurant. I ordered a rose iced tea. It was this beautiful, pale pink colour, refreshing and made from dried rose petals. Back home I just had to make some but had to do so without the rose petals… I made it with rose syrup. It’s just a delight to look at and reminds me of my truly wonderful Dubai experience.
