At the recent 22nd World Gourmet Summit Press Conference, WGS founder Peter A. Knipp addressed the crowd.
“For more than two decades, we have constantly presented some of the most vibrant and extraordinary of culinary experiences to Singapore’s diners,” said Peter, CEO of PKH Pte Ltd, who manages and curates the event. “To appreciate food and drinks is one thing, but we can only truly be enriched by digging deeper into the roots of the world’s cuisines and the DNA of food.”
WGS’s charismatic founder had lots to say about this year’s mouth-watering, thought-provoking lineup of gastronomic experiences. And the event itself was filled with SG culinary stars, from Ricky Ng of Blue Lotus to Petrina Loh of Morsels, and showcased a variety of premium products like Teaspec fine Chinese teas, Taiwanese brand Kavalan Whisky and Kuhlbarra – Singapore’s own barramundi fish farm.
There were so many delicious bites to try, it was difficult to taste them all! But, they included the ones shown above: Gulab Jamun Spheres In Rose Saffron Nectar from Rang Mahal, Langoustine Tartare from Alati, Durian Penyet Puff with Grand Marnier from One Farrer Hotel and Silky Fowl with Ang Chow Sauce and Fermented Garlic Whipped Potato from Morsels.
These are just a smattering of the dozens of hosting establishments, hospitality partners, partner restaurants, luxury brands, embassies and other entities affiliated with WGS, which has been described as “Asia’s most highly anticipated food and wine festival.” This year’s official partners include Turkish Airlines and charity partner, the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Singapore, for which WGS has raised more than $8 million since 2000.
For the 2018 theme “The Discovery WGS”, diners will be “taken off the beaten track to experience some of the world’s exciting, lesser-known cuisines, presented by a stellar line up of culinary stars – young, up and coming, and established – representing countries from Asia, Eastern and Central Europe, and America,” shares the WGS.
