Ramadan at the JW Marriott Hotel Dubai is all about the taste, tales and trails of the spice routes. Whether rare or familiar, all spices share the intriguing history of being traded along these ancient routes. Connecting people and cultures, this trade led to an exchange of knowledge and changed the culinary world forever.
Spices are not only synonymous with flavour, but also with colour and creativity and so, the artists of Mawaheb from Beautiful People, brought the concept of “Ramadan Along the Spice Routes” to life on canvas. Mawaheb from Beautiful People is an art studio for adults with special needs that has the mission of breaking down boundaries and stigmas associated with special needs people, by integrating them into society and demonstrating that each individual can be creative in their own unique way. The group of artists visited the hotel, learned about spices and cooked together with the chefs before enjoying a preview tasting of the Iftar dishes. The fun-filled event resulted in a unique and colourful painting that is now on display in the hotel and used in all promotional collateral and advertising.
Take a look at our film on how the artwork came together and don’t forget to pick up a beautiful Ramadan greeting card with their painting when you come to dine at Iftar.
