Taste MIGF 2016

[MIGF Special]

  

We were quite thrilled to be invited for the VIP Gala Night of TASTE MIGF on Friday, 23 September 2016 which was a preview for VIPs, judges, media and specially invited guests before the event opened up to the public on Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th September 2016.

In line with the theme High Octane Chefs, Taste MIGF provided exciting gastronomical activities for the whole family in a carnival-like atmosphere. Aside from the delicious food being served up in the Theatre of Cuisines, visitors to Taste MIGF could also shop at the Epicure International Gourmet Village, attend Master Chefs’ cooking classes and enjoy wine appreciation talks and a host of other informative workshops.

Visitors to Taste MIGF could exchange Gastro Dollars (purchased with real Ringgit) for sampling portions from some of Malaysia’s best restaurants in the Theatre of Cuisines. There were also daily cooking demonstrations by Chef Albert Au, a recipient of three Michelin stars with restaurants all over the world, who made a special stop in Malaysia just to be a part of the Malaysia International Gastronomy Festival.

Apart from the Theatre of Cuisines, we also got to shop at the Epicure International Gourmet Village where gourmet food and beverage vendors were selling everything from fine wines to exquisite cheeses. There was also the LuxuryPlus Showcase – from high-end art pieces and tableware to jewellery and exotic getaways, highlighting the finest luxurious lifestyle options.

  

Extra excited because both Andy Kho and I were also on the media judging panel!
