Cook with Three MICHELIN-starred Restaurant Chefs at the 2021 Singapore Food Festival

This year’s Singapore Food Festival, happening from 27 August to 12 September 2021, features virtual masterclasses that can be enjoyed by both local and international food lovers.

Local Singapore Singapore Food Scene

Back for its 28th year, the Singapore Food Festival by the Singapore Tourism Board is a highly-anticipated gastronomic event. After the recent addition of Singapore’s street food on the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Culture Heritage of Humanity, the Singapore Food Festival further celebrates local Singaporean fare and encourages locals to rediscover the breadth and depth of Singapore’s flavour tapestry through innovative takes on local cuisine.

Following the theme of “Savour Singapore in Every Bite” this year, the festival aims to bring both local and international gourmands to dive into Singapore’s rich culinary landscape and re-ignite their love for food.

For the first time ever, the Singapore Food Festival has gone hybrid and has taken the event both online and offline, putting together a program comprised of virtual walking tours and masterclasses—three of which will be led by MICHELIN-starred restaurant chefs Jeremy Gillon of Restaurant JAG, Haikal Johari of Alma, and Rishi Naleendra of Cheek Bistro.
