Editor's Letter

Its hard to believe that we are already approaching spring, it seems like only yesterday that a new year was dawning. In a packed issue we explore Washington DC, drive a Ferrari through the stunning mountain roads of Ras Al Khaimah, discover the new Four Seasons in Abu Dhabi, take a stroll through the streets of Dublin, enjoy the palm-fringed city of Miami and visit Valencia. Clarissa Hyman waxes lyrical about Dover Sole, we go nuts with Pippa Murray, take a culinary journey around the eight wonders of the world and Neil Perry delights us with some of his favourite desserts. We sent Food and Travel’s intrepid reporter Jesper Storgaard Jensen to speak with Winner of the World’s Best Restaurant, three Michelin starred chef Massimo Bottura, Sudeshna Ghosh talked to celebrated Michelin chef Tom Aikens about his latest venture in Dubai, superstar chef Gaggan Anand tells us how to spend 30c and three Michelin starred legend Thierry Marx joins our team with his new column for Food and Travel. And if that wasn’t enough to excite your taste buds or get you eager for your next vacation, see who is the best in Bahrain and find out who won the 2016/7 Bahrain Food and Travel Awards.
