Gourmet Food Fest
From 2 to 29 April, Asia’s popular food and wine festival World Gourmet Summit returns for its 22nd year, offering a selection of gourmet events, masterclasses and exclusive menus at award-winning restaurants across the island. As part of this year’s theme, “The Discovery WGS”, diners will be taken off the beaten track to experience some of the world’s lesser known and exciting cuisines – for example, Hungarian and Polish fare – presented by a line-up of both up-and-coming and established culinary stars, representing countries from Asia, Eastern and Central Europe, and America. For more details, visit worldgourmetsummit.com.

Raised on non-GMO feed, the poultry is cage-free, hormone-free and Halal certified. Use the code “EXPATLIVING20” at checkout to enjoy $20 off with a minimum spend of $160. themeatclub.com.sg
Female Food Star
This year’s title of Elit Vodka Asia’s Best Female Chef goes to Bongkoch “Bee” Satongun, chef of Bangkok-based Paste restaurant, which is celebrated for its creative yet authentic Thai flavours. The self-taught Bee works alongside Australian-born husband Jason Bailey, and is known for her contrasting textures, attention to detail and ability to reinterpret traditional Thai cuisine in a modern context by combining ancient and contemporary techniques with surprising twists, and reviving centuries-old recipes and rare ingredients.
Given as part of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants programme, which is voted on by over 300 industry experts across the region including food writers, chefs and other foodies, the accolade recognises an exceptional female chef whose culinary skills, entrepreneurial spirit and creativity have earned her the admiration of critics, connoisseurs and fellow chefs.
