Back at Souk Al Bahar
You must know your growers to know your food. On Friday 10th December, don’t miss the opportunity to meet local farmers and farm hands at the Farmers’ Market on the Terrace, from 9 am to 6 pm. Join us on the terrace outside Souk Al Bahar’s Baker & Spice.
From 12th November onwards, Baker & Spice has a new Central Kitchen Shop & Café in Dukkan Al Manzil, Downtown Dubai. Our new kitchen and bakery allows us to introduce a new range of exciting artisan sourdough breads and lots of new wonderful food and cakes, as well as a new party catering service. The little café will become the new centre point for the hood.

Baby leaves For the first time in the UAE, B&S Dubai is now serving a selection of locally grown baby salad leaves. Our chosen mix – especially grown for us – at the moment includes red oakleaf lettuce, Boston butterhead lettuce, local rocket, pak choi, bull’s blood and red chard. The mix will grow and change with the seasons and availability.
We are eagerly waiting to see and to taste the first baby spinach when it arrives in our kitchen shortly.
Our supplier is Salata Farms in Ras al Khaimah, and this is the first time this product is available home grown in the UAE.

B&S Dubai Tip of the Month
Know your food
When shopping in the markets for your fresh fruits and vegetables, ask about the origins of your purchases. Remember how you feel after a long flight? Well, imagine how a strawberry would be after a minimum 24-hour journey.
B&S Dubai Buys From
We, at B&S Dubai, love to highlight the fabulous work done by our suppliers. We're extremely proud to buy the most incredible fennel, strawberries, aubergines, potatoes, herbs and much more from Abu Dhabi Organic Farms, which also retails at Mazaraa in Abu Dhabi.

Organic white mulberry (white tut) is harvested from the trees at Mazaraa Farm as we speak. These trees are young and this is the first crop they are giving. This is an Afghan variety. The fruit is very long and very sweet. You would normally find this fruit in its dry form in local shops and we recommend using it in your muesli.
Fresh tut is very sweet with a honeyed note.
At B&S Dubai we are hurriedly turning it into a jam, with very little added sugar and a drop of lemon juice. This jam will be officially launched together with our afternoon tea menu this week.
