World Gourmet Summit is back

Discovery will be the focus of this year’s World Gourmet Summit, an annual gastronomic festival now into its 22nd edition.

Gourmands can look forward to cuisine and flavours that span the globe – from central and eastern Europe to east Asia.

The three-week epicurean feast kicks off next Monday and ends on April 29. It will feature about 50 events that include meals whipped up by guest chefs from more than 10 countries such as Ireland, Ukraine, Hungary and South Korea, as well as a range of culinary masterclasses and special menus at participating restaurants.

The World Gourmet Summit is organised by food consultancy Peter Knipp Holdings, and supported by the Singapore Tourism Board.

On the direction of this year’s summit, Mr Peter Knipp, 63, chief executive of Peter Knipp Holdings, says: “This year, it is about discovery. We want people to get a true understanding of the origins of food.”

A charity gala will also be held at Swissotel The Stamford in support of the National Kidney Foundation.
