#DineWithWMFA at Marina Social

“The best way to multiply your happiness is by sharing it with others”. We know we get our happiness from our dining moments and what better way to express our love for our followers than by sharing our culinary journey with them! Which is why we have officially launched a monthly gourmet dining experience – #DineWithWMFA that take place at some of the best high-end restaurants in Dubai. Our motive to launch #DineWithWMFA was simple. We essentially wanted to interact with our followers who are as passionate about food as we are and introduce them to some of the best and most talked about fine dining restaurants in Dubai. We make sure our dinner parties are not just merely gatherings of people sitting down at dinner tables and gorging on food. What we strive for, is to make this a money-can’t-buy experience where our followers can meet and interact with the chefs, experience private masterclasses and fill their tummies with customized dishes and cocktails.
We didn’t blink twice before we decided to kick-start our #DineWithWMFA series with Marina Social – Dubai’s hottest restaurant by acclaimed Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton. The British-inspired restaurant deformalizes fine dining to bring you extraordinary dishes and an unpretentious casual atmosphere.
When you have over 40,000 followers on Instagram it’s difficult to choose just six lucky winners to be a part of the first #DineWithWMFA, which is why we posted a competition on social media to make life easier. After all the entries were submitted (there were ALOT), we randomly chose our lucky six!
Since we wanted to make our event a bit personal, we decided to create personalized invitation cards and send them out by post. We designed and printed out the invites by ourselves and created handmade envelopes as well (took us back to our childhood Arts and Crafts days).
We had a lot of fun during our event; our followers not only got to taste some of Marina Social’s signature dishes, but witnessed a private dessert masterclass conducted by the very humble and talented Chef Patron Tristin Farmer and meet the man himself – Jason Atherton. The team at Marina Social were kind enough to produce a beautifully delectable ten course menu that left our followers stuffed and crawling out of the restaurant.
The dishes included the famous Goats Cheese Churros with Truffle Honey, English Breakfast “Tea and Toast”, Duck Leg Agnolotti with White Onion Puree and Duck Crumble, and Potato Gnocchi with Roasted Pumpkin and Wild Mushroom. In the end, we got a live demonstration by one of the most renowned chefs in Dubai (Tristin of course) on how to flawlessly perfect the art of making a Banoffee Soufflé. Our dining experience concluded with a trolley full of sweet treats being drawn to our table and our followers getting the chance to take home a souvenir of Marina Social’s #SocialSweets
Once again we’d like to thank the brilliant team of Marina Social for being the perfect hosts. We couldn’t have thought of a better way to kick start #DineWithWMFA and are highly indebted to them for creating this beautiful memory for us and our followers. Below are a few screenshots of what our followers shared on social media and here’s what the lovely Annika Panikker had to say about our dinner on her blog (http://bit.ly/2fabYU4).
