The first-ever Dominican Week in Qatar has concluded with an exclusive dinner that brought the best of Dominican gastronomy to Hunters Room & Grill at The Westin Doha Hotel and Spa.

Dominican chef Maria Marte captivated the diners with a gastronomic proposal that combined Dominican, Latin American and Mediterranean cuisine with Arab ingredients – a sophisticated fusion of flavours that represented a piece of the Dominican Republic on each plate.

Presented by HE Federico Cuello Camilo, Dominican Republic Ambassador to Qatar with the support of Qatar Airways and The Westin Doha, the exclusive event was attended by a few local personalities and ambassadors who enjoyed a highly refined dinner with an impeccable service provided by The Westin Doha Hotel team.

Ehab Amin, Qatar Airways Senior Vice President – Qatar, said that the first-ever Dominican Week held in Qatar has been a wonderful opportunity to showcase the Dominican Republic’s stunning beauty, culture and gastronomy and that Qatar Airways is honoured to support the exclusive dinner and help further strengthen the connection between the State of Qatar and the Dominican Republic.
