World Gourmet Summit 2016: Events you wouldn't want to miss

A gathering of the culinary giants

World Gourmet Summit 2016: Events you wouldn't want to miss
From 28 March to 24 April, the 20th edition of the World Gourmet Summit returns with a slew of gastronomic events celebrating the world of fine cuisine, great wines, and artisanal producers. Below, three events for the discerning gourmand

Israeli evening featuring Meir Adoni

World Gourmet Summit 2016

When: 6 April 2016, 7 - 11pm
Where: The Disgruntled Chef at The Club
Why go: When you think of Israeli food, fresh vegetable salads, punchy dips, and filo dough pastries come to mind. But under the masterful hand of Chef Meir Adoni — who counts legendary chefs such as Grant Achatz, Rene Redzepi, and Juan Mari Arzak as his mentors — Israeli food transcends its bucolic pastures and takes a bold dip in modern culinary territories. Together with Singaporean chef Daniel Sia, Adoni will present a rare taste of Israeli cuisine that pulls together Arab, Jewish, and Eastern European influences. 


Gastronomical experiences of NUCA in House of Krug featuring Nacho Manzano

World Gourmet Summit 2016

When: 8 April 2016, 7 - 11pm
Where: Dolce Vita, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore
Why go: Spanish Masterchef Nacho Manzano is no stranger to the Michelin-star circuit. The celebrated chef turns out plates that draw from the best producers across Spain and demonstrates a keen sensitivity to uncommon pairings of ingredients that quite simply, work. Think a celery panna cotta sided with fennel slush, apple soup, and seaweed — just one of six dishes you'll get to try at this exclusive dinner. Needless to say, dinner will be served with a flight of Krug champagnes.


Le 3 mamme dinner

World Gourmet Summit 2016

When: 4 April, 7 - 11pm
Where: Forlino
Why go: They say that too many cooks spoil the broth, but that certainly doesn't apply when Giovanna Randone, Gianna Fossati, and Maria Teresa Biovi share a kitchen. Think of these three ladies as the Italian grandmothers you never had. Under the masterful hands of these Ligurian natives, expect to taste a slew of dishes from the region that showcase the hearty, homely, and rustic appeal of Ligurian cuisine. There's homemade linguine with fresh pesto, octopus salad, and stuffed veal breast served with baked eggplant and zucchini. Nobody's allowed to leave the table till their plates are empty.
