While Singaporeans come from different socio-cultural backgrounds, one common passion is our undying love for food. It is perfectly apt that the annual World Gourmet Summit is held at the bastions of fine dining throughout the city, such as the Grand Hyatt’s mezza9, The Fullerton Hotel’s The Lighthouse, Grand Copthorne Waterfront Singapore’s Pontini, St Regis Singapore’s Brasserie Les Saveurs and more.
Over the years, the festival, with its emphasis on fine cuisine, great wines and unique dining, has come into its own as Southeast Asia’s premier fine dining festival. Previous editions of this festival have included internationally acclaimed luminaries of the culinary arts like multiple Michelin starred Anne-Sophie Pic, Bart De Pooter, Heinz Beck and renowned television chef Curtis Stone. This annual gourmet food and wine festival promises gourmands everywhere the chance to immerse themselves in the finest haute cuisine in the world.
For the 14th instalment of the much anticipated mega culinary event of the year, its enticing line-up includes a Charity Dinner held in aid of the Community Chest, celebrity dinners prepared by the biggest names in the culinary world; culinary masterclasses and workshops for sessions up-close with esteemed chefs; a gourmet golf experience combining the popular game with excellent cuisine; delectable wine tasting; and Sunday brunches – all held in some of Singapore’s best restaurants.
Savour the decadent culinary pleasures crafted by the giants of haute cuisine and get set to witness magical collaborations between executive Singaporean chefs and internationally renowned culinary icons. These include Michelin-starred chefs like Bruno Ménard, Ferran Adrià, Alfonso Iaccarino, and Michel Rostang, as well as culinary geniuses like Fredéric Bau, Dario Barrio and Vivek Singh.
The World Gourmet Summit 2010 also includes the Grandeur of Wine event, featuring top wine tasters and respected wine critics from all over the world and a Grand Jury European tasting of the best vintages in history. Guests will join gastronomic professionals and local talents at the gala dinner to savour the finest wines paired with exquisite cuisine, while Singapore’s first public large scale wine fair will feature over 150 exquisite wine labels from the world’s leading wine-producing countries.
