11 January 2012, Singapore – From the mastermind behind the annual Singapore F1 Grand Prix, Mr Colin Syn, deputy chairman of Singapore GP Pte Ltd, now brings to Singapore the first gourmet fiesta of its kind here. Its philosophy is to unite fine food and drink with a plethora of expert master classes, live demonstrations, fun workshops and culinary shopping, in an event that reaches out to you and I.
Within one purpose-built venue, you can find an alfresco Gourmet Village teeming with award-winning restaurants helmed by Michelin and celebrity chefs (Chef Alain Passard from L’Arpege, France and Chef Alvin Leung from Bo Innovation, Hong Kong), a bespoke indoor Gourmet Auditorium complete with a state-of-the-art kitchen where culinary master classes are held, and a Gourmet Market that boasts an international showcase of artisan food and drink exhibitors.
The Gourmet Village will showcase over 50 dishes from 16 award-winning chefs and restaurants. Wander from menu to menu, on a tasting trail that could take you from Alain Passard’s world famous “Chaud-Froid” Egg to a Peruvian specialty of Scallops Tiradito. Chart your own course on a unique culinary journey with all dishes priced between S$6 and S$21.
