Savour is Singapore’s largest gourmet food festival; last year’s event drew crowds of up to 14, 000. The festival encapsulates ‘Michelin-starred dishes, expert master classes, live demonstrations, fun workshops and culinary shopping.’
Margot Janse has left on a jet plane to join ‘over 25 leading chefs and 18 award-winning restaurants serving up a global tasting trail’ in the Gourmet Village.
It’s said that the 2013 line-up will feature chefs with over 10 Michelin-stars between them in addition to top-100 ranked restaurants. Today Online said “…most will also want to savour signature creations from some of the world’s best: Mauro Colagreco of Mirazur in France (1 Michelin star, No 24 on the S.Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurants list for 2012), Margot Janse of Le Quartier Francais in South Africa (No 57).”
Margot sent us this picture of them setting up The Tasting Room’s stand – the resemblance to the real thing is amazing. If this is the level of attention that goes into merely setting up the stall—can you imagine the market in its entirety! (We’ll report back with more images from the festival once it’s over.)
