“The new classes at the hotel really play on what the food enthusiast is looking for these days when it comes to a truly exciting experience other than dining in a great restaurant. It also allows our chefs to connect with our guests and diners and engage them on a one to one basis, which is something that a lot of people really like. We are very excited about the new classes and are sure that we will build on them with more options over time” said Stephan Vanden Auweele, General Manager of Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers.
