The Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) enters its 15th year, and will kick-off with Taste MIGF, the exciting preview event of MIGF, which will be held on 5th and 6th September 2015 at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

At Taste MIGF, food lovers can enjoy sampling portions from the Festival menus at the Theatre of Cuisines. There will also be an array of cooking classes and lifestyle workshops will take place throughout the preview event, conducted by top professionals that are recognised experts in their respective fields, with many of the Festival Master Chefs sharing their culinary secrets! Look out for the special class by Chef Wan!

Those who enjoy wines and cigars will be pleased to know that there will be appreciation classes, as well as a wide range of modern lifestyle and well-being workshops.

At the Theatre of Cuisines, where the Festival restaurants are showcased, visitors can enjoy a Super Gourmet Safari using Gourmet dollars that can be purchased in advance online or bought at the venue on the day of the day itself. The Super Gourmet Safari allows visitors to taste dishes from all the Festival menus and get a better idea of what is being served up at the 25 participating restaurants. This way it will be easier for you to decide which restaurant you want to visit during the Festival month of October.

Don’t forget to get your Gourmet Dollars which will be available on the day of the event itself and can also be purchased online at a 5% discount. Head over to  www.tastemigf.com to purchase.
