Asia’s premier food and wine festival continues its brilliant 21-year run under this year’s overarching theme of United Nations Gastronomic Assembly to dazzle gourmands in Singapore.
Having put Singapore at the forefront as a dynamic international culinary hotspot, the World Gourmet Summit (WGS) will be an illustrious “assembly” of some of the most respected Masterchefs and influential industry masters from around the world. Gourmet food fans can expect nothing less than an exquisite line up of gourmet affairs, masterclasses, events and exclusive WGS menus at award-winning and much-loved dining establishments in Singapore.
The highlight of this year’s summit would be the presence of three guest chefs – Mitch Lienard from California, Dharsan Munidasa from Sri Lanka and Quentin Glabus from Canada.
