Cheese, Truffles and Dumplings – A Round-Up of Foodie Events in Doha

Today I felt the faintest hint of a chill in the air in Doha. Which means it was 27 degrees instead of 35.

Still, winter is coming and this is the most active time in Doha for foodie events and happenings.

So for my Qatar-based readers, here are three foodie events you should try and make happen in the coming days and weeks.

My love of dumplings is well documented and I have even traveled to China and Hong Kong on dumpling expeditions. W Doha’s Spice Market is running a Dim Sum promotion with renowned Chinese chef Allan Huang.

For QR250 you get a soup, two starters and six baskets of dumplings plus desserts. There is a special cocktail and mocktail menu for an additional charge. The promotion runs until 19 November. Tweet @wdoha for bookings. *Special note on this, the dumplings are now available a la carte and not in the special menu

It’s white truffle season and Doha is not immune to the fervor that greets these earthy delights. Ritz Carlton Doha has a special promotion at its lovely Porcini restaurant have a special a la carte menu designed around these “diamonds”

Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention a cheese event. Every last Tuesday evening of the month, Four Seasons Doha hosts a Cheese and Jazz night at it’s Italian restaurant, Il Teatro.
