This September, foodies from all over Southeast Asia treated their palates to a weekend of delicious delicacies at The Great Food Festival, held at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore
Thirty celebrity and award-winning chefs were present to grace the arena of The Great Food Festival at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore on September 21-24.
The launch of the country’s biggest gourmet and lifestyle event welcomed a variety of food enthusiasts, couples, families, and bloggers as well as those who simply wanted to indulge in Michelin-starred dishes at affordable prices.
The Great Food Festival, Singapore’s inaugural event of its type, was a collaboration between Asia’s award-winning premium lifestyle destination resort Resorts World Sentosa—known for presenting a multitude of outstanding culinary experiences and dining venues in Singapore with the most number of Michelin stars—and international gourmet festival curator Savour Events, recognised for its flagship festival brand SAVOUR.
Grouped into five categories, namely Star Chef Arena, Heritage Lane, Rollin’ Sweet Times, Feast of Kings and Connoisseur Collection, The Great Food Festival was segmented into the different flavours and experiences each category represented.
The Star Chef Arena was bustling with Michelin-starred and award-wining chefs such as brothers Enrico and Roberto Cerea, who are behind Resorts World Sentosa’s Fratelli, and Cat Cora, the first and only female Iron Chef who fronts Resorts World Sentosa’s Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora.
Also on site were Australian-born Scott Webster, who runs the Michelin-starred Osia Steak and Seafood Grill at Resorts World Sentosa and Hal Yamashita, who is known for his nouvelle Japanese creations and who oversees Resorts World Sentosa’s Syun.
Moving along the food-filled arena, guests were drawn to the fragrance of spices from The Heritage Lane, which was home to exotic dishes from Spain, Thailand, Indonesia, Mexico, and Italy, among others. Fifty heritage-inspired dishes welcomed guests as they carefully selected the next meal to try for the day.
After half a day of sampling savouries, guests were then immersed in Asia’s largest consumer dessert and pastry showcase at Rollin’ Sweet Times. From just SGD$4, the arena had over 300 varieties to choose from, as well as a glow-in-the-dark room for some of the bakers’ glowing desserts and some of the most Instagram-worthy cake slices.
At Feast of Kings, guests were treated to a one-of-a-kind dining experience with Michelin-starred chefs. Meanwhile, Connoisseur Collection was a sensational collaboration that saw award-winning chefs and the accomplished resident chefs of Resorts World Sentosa coming together in a rare team-up to produce a four-hands seated dinner. Truly an unforgettable experience!
