The fund-raising dinner, held in the Pan Pacific Singapore, saw a gathering of the good (cooks) and the great (sponsors) and the rest of us in between – guests, suppliers, gracious supporters, greedy not-so-little-moi.

The like-minded of the association of chefs in Singapore put their pots and pans and toques and truffle oils together for a meaty cause. To send aspirants to culinary Olympics abroad. “See if can take the heat from overseas kitchens.”

These young chefs are challenged on creativity and skill sets, under pressure. In the USA, UK, Europe, Hongkong, Japan. (Team Singapore has notched several culinary champions medals.)

“All eventual winners, for the invaluable experience gained in competition,” said Edmund Toh, president Singapore Chefs Association. He has cooked for president George W Bush, Vladimir Putin, Tiger Woods.
