In the name World Gourmet Summit 2011, Summit is the key word as it is an occasion for the very top of the world’s chef to meet. It is a weeklong event happening at Singapore between April 25 and May8 2011. It is a treat for gourmands of Singapore as they get to celebrate exquisite creations by the world’s leading chefs and some exceptional wine tastings from vintners from the world over. Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, the Summit is Asia’s foremost gastronomic event.
Some of the most iconic names from the culinary world are participating in the annual epicurean event that will host 54 themed events over the week. The festival has planned gourmet safaris, vintner dinners, celebrity dinners and master-classes and much more. Fourteen establishments are playing host to the event and the festival has the support of twelve hospitality partners. The food and cuisine in Singapore is already famous for its variety. The Summit playing out in the top restaurants and hotels will give a further boost to the gastronomic scene of the city.
