As a "Showroom of New Culinary Perspectives", this year's festival will feature a wealth of refreshing experiences, including the innovative elevation of Chinese cuisine, an inspiring line-up of online masterclasses, and a roster of bright and bold F&B personalities.
Cocktail lovers and green lifestyle enthusiasts should not miss the "Sustainable Cocktail" online masterclass hosted by Agung Prabowo of Penicillin bar, winner of Asia's 50 Best Sustainable Bar Award for 2021. The "Sustainable Cocktail" masterclass will be available for a global audience alongside other "Tasting On-Air" programmes covering a wide range of topics on various trends related to wine and spirits.
Worth noting is "Chinese Omakase by Masterchefs", a concept-driven, outside-the-box Chinese fine dining experience. This concept is loosely inspired by the original omakase-style, whereby a meal's direction is left entirely up to the chef's discretion, giving the chef creative freedom and the diner a memorable dining experience.
Eighteen master chefs from revered Chinese restaurants across the city will spearhead the programme and showcase their mastery of techniques and innovations.
For instance, Chef Chan Yan Tak from the Michelin 3-starred Lung King Heen will take diners on a tasting journey from sea to sky, while Chef Jayson Tang from Michelin 1-starred Man Ho Restaurant has created an innovative menu that is meticulously curated based on the relationship between the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
