Back in October 2013, I had the chance to attend and review the special MIGF menu at The Restaurant in The Club, Saujana Resort, and I was very impressed with the food which was paired with wines for each of the courses. You can read more about my visit here – https://timchew.net/2013/10/22/romantic-dining-spots-the-restaurant-the-club-saujana-resort/

So I was very delighted when I got word that the 14th Malaysia International Gourmet Festival was officially launched at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall on Friday, 12th September 2014 in a ceremony officiated by YAM Tunku Laxamana Negeri Sembilan, Tunku Naquiyuddin Tuanku Ja’afar, who is also Royal Patron of the Festival. The theme of this year’s festival is “Red Hot Chefs!” and involves almost 30 restaurants and hotels in Malaysia!              

Taste MIGF (which is the preview event that kicks off the festival proper) takes place from 26th to 28th September 2014 at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre with the (invite only) gala night on 26 September, and will open to the public from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.

In the specially created “Theatre of Cuisines”, where the Festival restaurants are showcased, visitors can buy “Gourmet Dollars” and enjoy a “Super Gourmet Safari” sampling creations from Malaysia’s leading chefs as they serve up tasting portions from their Festival Menus. These special portions are big enough to exhibit the creativity of the Festival chefs but small enough to allow tasting as many dishes from as many restaurants as possible. Live music and cooking demonstrations take place, providing a fiesta-like atmosphere for all visitors.

To partake in the Super Gourmet Safari, you will need Gourmet Dollars were created to minimise queues and delays for people waiting for their change. Gourmet Dollars will be available for purchase on the day of the event itself; however you can enjoy a 5% discount if you pre-purchase Gourmet Dollars at http://www.tastemigf.com

TasteMIGF will also feature an “Epicure International Gourmet Village”, situated right next to the Theatre of Cuisines. Here, more than 80 purveyors of the finest gourmet food, wines, cigars, and much more, offer their wares in a festive, bazaar-like atmosphere. The Epicure International Gourmet Village will open to the public from 11.00am to 4.00pm on Friday 26th September and again from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.

This is a unique opportunity to get to know the Festival Master Chefs as they share their culinary secrets. There will also be wine appreciation, mixology classes and many other activities throughout the 2-day weekend. You can pre-register to book your seats at http://www.tastemigf.com Cooking Classes and Workshops will be conducted on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September from 1.00pm until 8.30pm.
