Celebrity chefs, masterclasses and a feast inspired by the royalty of aeons past are descending upon Resorts World™ Sentosa for a culinary extravaganza.
At The GREAT Food Festival, swoon over top chefs from around the world as they perform culinary magic. Don’t get too distracted, though—there will be plenty to stuff your bellies with.
Singapore’s largest food festival, a collaboration between Resorts World™ Sentosa (RWS) and Savour Events, is primed to be the gastronomic event of the year. Sprawled over 215,000 square feet, the food spectacle will showcase chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants—both local and international—cooking up a storm. Here’s what you can look forward to.
Star Chef Arena
Think of this as a food court fit for royalty. In one hall, more than 50 dishes from Michelin-starred restaurants from the world over will be yours for the taking—from S$10 each. Rub shoulders with the top toques: Enrico and Roberto Cerea from Italy’s three-Michelin-starred Da Vittorio and Cat Cora of Iron Chef fame, who will be serving up their acclaimed plates.
Stroll down Heritage Lane and let aromas from traditional cuisines wash over you. A cadre of local chefs will be presenting more than 50 dishes (S$6 each) inspired by the culinary heritage of Spain, Thailand and Mexico; among other nations. The food ranges from the traditional, like Orlando Eggleton’s tacos, to fusion fare such as Han Li Guang’s rendang (braised meat cooked in coconut milk and spices) quinoa risotto.
Rollin’ Sweet Times
Lovers of cakes, pastries and other sweet treats will want to make a beeline for Asia’s largest dessert fair. Besides the 300 desserts (from S$4 each) that you can sample or bring home, Rollin’ Sweet Times will also be conducting free masterclasses. Instagram star bakers Julián Ángel and Clifford Luu are teaming up to present tips and tricks on how to make their picture-perfect cakes.
Feast of Kings
Always wanted a seat at the lavish banquets you see on Game of Thrones? Then gather your mates and register for Feast of Kings. You’ll be dining like the lords and ladies of centuries past—but this time, you’ll be taken care of by chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants.
Too many cooks won’t spoil the broth—not if they’re acclaimed chefs from some of Singapore’s top restaurants. In the Connoisseur Collection, three pairs of chefs will be joining forces for a series of ‘four-hands’ dinners (25 and 26 September) in RWS’ restaurants.
