The 21st edition of the World Gourmet Summit was held in Singapore from March 20 to April 16, two weeks of flavorful delights. The Summit featured more than 50 activities and events, bringing together 2,700 foodies, and saw a partnership between 49 top dining destinations in Singapore. Culinary events included a five-course dinner by Chef Jarno Eggen, as well as a Sunday Brunch extravaganza at Singapore’s Tamarind Hill. Specially crafted dinners jostled with exotic menus as resident and visiting masterchefs whipped up a lip-smacking storm. In addition to this, the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Gala Dinner was held in conjunction with World Gourmet Summit, to raise public awareness on the plight of kidney patients. A record $1.120 million was raised at the dinner with all proceeds going to the NKF. Among the honours awarded to the chefs at the Summit was the Chef of the Year award that went to Chef Julien Royer of two-Michelin-starred Odette and Restaurateur of the Year that was bagged by Wee Teng Wen of The Lo & Behold Group.
