Fatafeat's revamped studios in Dubai.

Fatafeat, Discovery’s Dubai-based local studio, won the Studio of the Year award 2020 swatting away competition from the likes of TwoFour54.

Amanda Turnbull, general manager, Middle East, Africa, Turkey, Discovery said: “We’ve worked incredibly hard… producing hundreds of hours of high-quality content each year. Following a huge transformational upgrade to our facilities in 2019, the space is now at its most effective, not only housing the local production of all of Fatafeat’s content, but also lending its services to aid in the production of long-form television shows for other channels within the Discovery portfolio, including Food Network Italia, Food Network South Africa and Food Network US’s new App ‘Food Network Kitchen’.”

In 2012 Fatafeat, the world’s largest fully Arabic cooking brand, became a subsidiary of Discovery Networks International. Today, the channel is in millions of homes via satellite with beIN, and has a digital footprint of over 14 million in the MENA region.

The brand also has a huge digital and social media presence, and has recently launched its new cooking course app, ‘Genius Kitchen’ in the UAE, Oman and Egypt.
