2. International Chefs Summit Asia (ICSA)


Inspired by Charles Dicken’s Tale of Two Cities, International Chefs Summit Asia 2021 brings “A Tale of Two Cities”: a two-day virtual extravaganza celebrating the best of Singapore and Taiwanese cuisine. The event, held virtually and simultaneously between Singapore and Taipei, brings together 14 award-winning chefs from both countries.

Through the seven live-streamed sessions hosted by Miele’s in-house chef and MasterChef Asia finalist, Lennard Yeong, ICSA 2021 is a unique experience not to be missed! Moreover, attendees will get the best seat in the house, with up-close opportunities to pose questions directly to the chefs during the virtual showcases.

The dishes created by the chefs will be presented to attendees as do-it-yourself kits sent to your homes – which means that you will get the chance to complete the dishes alongside the chefs in real-time! If that sounds stressful, fret not. A recorded version of the live stream will also be made available exclusively to attendees, not just as a memento but as an invaluable resource for true foodies to reference in their personal culinary journey.
