SAVOUR 2016: Singapore’s Up & Coming Homegrown Chefs To Check Out This May


SAVOUR 2016 is fast approaching, and you wouldn’t want to miss the chance to bask in a three-part edition of food and drinks festivals, which are styled in exciting themes to indulge in throughout the year.


SAVOUR Gourmet will be happening from 12 May through 15 May 2016 at Marina Bay and kick starts the festivities by bringing together the best restaurants in town, featuring uprising homegrown chefs to showcase their impeccable culinary skills.


Be treated to an array of unique dishes that will pique your palate, along with cocktails to merry away, while being serenaded with live music by the Bay.


As part of the DBS Live Your Dream initiative, you will be invited to vote for the best dishes created by these talented chefs—their fate lies in your hands as they compete for the title of ‘Emerging Chef Singapore 2016’ and take home $25,000 in cash and prize.


Keep your eyes peeled on the dishes that will be featured at the event, like team Buona Terra’s succulent Gambero Rosso (Red Prawns), made by chef William Bai with mentor Denis Lucchi; or team Gattopardo’s glazed Baby Octopus With Bell Pepper Aioli and Sundried Tomatoes, by Kenneth Oh with mentor Lino Sauro, amongst many other tantalising dishes.
