SAVOUR is coming…

Sensational SAVOUR!

 The irrepressible Travelling Gourmet learns about a thrilling new gastronomic event in sunny Singapore

 MAKING a check in a reputable dictionary, I found that “Savour” means “To taste and smell appreciatively…”

Well, Food & Wine lovers, you are in for a treat because from 30 March, 2012 to April Fool’s Day 1 April 2012, at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, Paddock & Pit Building on 1, Republic Boulevard, there shall be a gastronomic event which aims to enable YOU to create your very own gourmet degustation experience. What I found to be very attractive is that the prices for attending this event are very affordable. This is in complete contrast to some gourmet events where the dinners and masterclasses cost hundreds of dollars and become more expensive each year! Take lunch for example; from 11.30am to 4pm, the ticket of S$40 includes 21 Savour Dollars which you can use to purchase dishes in the Gourmet Village, drinks at Village Bars and products at the Gourmet Market. For dinner from6pm to10.30pm, the ticket costs S$60 which includes 30 Savour Dollars. The price of your ticket includes FREE admission to the Masterclasses, Workshops and Demonstrations on a first come-first served basis.

There is a line-up of celebrated and talented Chefs like my friend, creative Chef Douglas Tay who helms Osia in RWS, Chef hans Valimaki with 2 Michelin * from Finland, mon ami, skilful Chef Julien Royer of Jaan, mi amico, Chef Roberto Galetti of Garibaldi, Russian Chef Kirill Shiryaev of Buyan, eccentric tattooed-Chef Alvin Leung from Hong Kong, 3 Michelin * Chef Alain Passard from France and many more.

TheGourmetVillageshall showcase over 50 dishes from 16 award winning Chefs. You can wander from menu to menu as your fancy takes you. The Gourmet Market with Cold Storage as the sponsor shall have all manner of epicurean delights which you can buy. At the Gourmet Auditorium, a 300 seater air conditioned theatre equipped with a state of the art Bosch kitchen, you can learn how to cook marvellous dishes and concoct cocktails. Cosmopolitan wines shall be supplied by Straits Wines.

Youthful and dynamic Darren Chen, Director of Savour Events Private Limited, proclaims, “Gastronomic Freedom is the order of the day at Savour so see you there!”
