In this week’s episode of Mama Baba Ganoush, I head to Qatar’s yearly celebration of food and culture at QIFF!

This year, the festival has moved to a fantastic new location slap-bang in one of Doha’s top spots – Hotel Park on the Corniche. There’s something for everyone here, from live cooking demonstrations with top celebrity chefs, to daily entertainment, shows, outdoor movies, and fireworks.

But let’s not forget about the food! There’s loads on offer to tickle those taste-buds! This year’s festival features a wide selection of delicacies from around the globe including some home-grown talent from Qatar. Whether you’re craving big, juicy burgers, slices of pizza, hot spicy curry, or delicious desserts – QIFF’s got you covered! Be sure to check out the food trucks and trolleys around the festival too. Food is priced between QR 5 to QR 35, which makes this a budget-friendly deal.

You’ve still got time to catch the festival so be sure to head there this week to celebrate the incredible range of food available in Qatar! You don’t want to miss it!
