The World Gourmet Summit, now into its 21st edition, is a titan fixture on Singapore’s annual food calendar. This year, World Gourmet Summit reconvenes from 20 March to 16 April under the theme ‘United Nations Gastronomic Assembly’.
This edition will see more than 12 masterchefs from around the world descending on Singapore.
They include Mitch Lienard from three-Michelin-starred Manresa restaurant in California, who was last year’s winner of the S. Pellegrino Young Chef award; Japanese-Sri Lankan chef Dharshan Munidasa, founder of acclaimed Japanese restaurant Nihonbashi in Colombo; and Canadian chef Quentin Glabus, who will showcase the unique flavours of aboriginal Canadian cuisine.
Singapore-based chefs will also be getting into the act, as over 30 partner restaurants will be involved in the line-up of master classes, events and exclusive WGS menus. Sign up for events like a mezcal degustation master class at El Mero Mero and an Aussie craft beer dinner at Salted & Hung.
Last but not least, there’ll be the WGS Awards of Excellence held on 27 March, which will honour the year’s top F&B and hospitality professionals.
