A Melting Pot of Top Chefs in Singapore
Attention foodies: The World Gourmet Summit is cooking, and it is offering a mouthwatering menu of treats from A-lister chefs.
With Singapore playing kitchen host, attending culinary buffs can witness the likes of celebrity chefs Andrew Turner of Britain, Michael Ginor of the US and Edward Kwon of South Korea working their wonder.
The Londoner Turner heads the iconic Wiltons, situated in the uber-chic St James area, a recipient of a few restaurant-of-the-year awards, and no stranger to television shows.
The versatile Ginor is the executive chef and owner of New York’s Lola, but also a cookbook author, food journalist and a purveyor.
Meanwhile, Seoul’s darling Kwon, who heads the kitchen of the Spice, is expected to go out there a prove that Korean dishes go beyond the quintessential kimchis and kalbis.
The culinary galore also offers demonstrations from star-recipients of the prestigious Michelin. The three-starred ones include Luisa Valazza from Al Sorriso in Piedmont, Italy and Bruno Ménard from L’Osier in Tokyo, Japan.
Food is not the only thing being offered on the table. The other-half of the festivity is all about wine. Wine estates from around the world will seduce the culinary buffs with the grapes from their vineyards.
The event, which the Jakarta Globe is supporting, opened on Monday and will run until May 8.
