Published March 15th, 2010 - 09:37 GMT

Tefal’s ‘Nutritious and Delicious,’ range of Cooking Appliances  designed to prepare healthy meals will feature at the “Taste of Dubai exhibition,” with a live cooking demonstration by Arabic Chef Maher. The event will take place at Dubai Media City from 17th to 20th March.

Tefal will be using the “Taste of Dubai” exhibition as a platform to showcase new concepts in healthy cooking using revolutionary new products. During the “Taste of Dubai” show, the chef will offer a wealth of cooking advice, including recipes, cooking techniques and practical tips and features useful to culinary students, housewives and food lovers alike using the new Tefal Nutricook, Actifry and Vitacuisine.

“Taste of Dubai 2010 is a follow up to the successful inaugural award winning event. Main attractions include: Restaurants and dishes, Entertainment, Celebrity Chefs and award winning cuisine

Ms, Shonila Misra, Marketing Director, Groupe SEB Export-Dubai said that Tefal would be following up on the successful debut of “Nutritious and Delicious” range of products which offer healthy cooking options to consumers at “Taste of Dubai,” with a new improved presentation.

The “Nutritious and Delicious,” range will include this year Nutricook - the first pressure cooker in the world with four exclusive cooking programmes in addition to Vitacuisine a versatile steamer, and Tefal Actifry, a revolutionary fryer which can cook a kilo of crispy French Fries with just one spoon of oil. She added that French fries cooked using Tefal’s Actifry contain fat content as low as 3%.

"Nutricook Is  part of Tefal’s Nutritious and Delicious range of products born from the desire to combine nutrition and pleasure and to respond to new requirements and consumer demand," said Ms. Misra.  “Tefal’s Research and Development revealed that steam cooking is without a doubt the method that best retains the nutritional qualities of food.”


She added that Nutricook uses an air vent system that activates automatically when cooking starts. The vent eliminates up to 90% of the oxygen present in the pressure cooker. Oxygen has been found to degrade food quality.

Other features of Nutricook are the optimized steamer basket developed based on cutting edge research on the steam flow inside the pressure cooker during cooking. The steam first flushes out the oxygen and then accelerates the cooking process.

The solid wall of the Nutricook basket prevents the oxygen from coming back into contact with the food.  The other innovation in this product is the use of gentle steam towards the end of the cooking process to cook the core of meat for example without overdoing the meat surface. Thanks to all these features Nutricook allows a custom made cooking for each food group: Vegetables, Starchy foods, meat, fish.

“Taste of Dubai,” is now widely considered one of the must-attend events in the UAE. Last year saw world-famous chefs from the city’s most-acclaimed restaurants create a memorable four days for food lovers by recreating a spectacular array of their star dishes’.

You can also enjoy world class cuisine at the Tefal Chef’s Theatre which would feature international Celebrity Chefs like Gary Rhodes, of Rhodes Mezzanine, Grosvenor House Hotel, Gary is the Official Patron of Taste Dubai and is a renowned Celebrity Chef on the International Circuit.

Also present will be Georgio Locatelli, James Martin, Anthony Worral Thomson and Vineet Bhatia all world renowned Chefs.

In addition, visitors to Tefal’s stand at Taste of Dubai will be in for a special treat – Tefal gives you a unique opportunity to “Take home a chef” - to experience an intimate cooking master class with new Executive Chef Scott Price and the team from Verre by Gordon Ramsay.
