Now in its 26th year, the annual Singapore Food Festival is an eagerly-awaited yearly event that often sees the city state’s best and brightest culinary offerings (and the people behind them) gather together for a line-up of food-centric events.

For the first time ever, this year’s edition of the festival, scheduled to take place across two weekends in August (21 to 23 August and 28 to 30 August) will be held virtually. The online edition will see more than 25 F&B mavens collaborate on food tours, live masterclasses, chef collaborations, food bundles and limited-edition merchandise.

The masterclasses will feature live demonstrations of recipes like Malcolm Lee's ayam buah keluak. The masterclasses will feature live demonstrations of recipes like Malcolm Lee's ayam buah keluak.

While Malaysians won’t be able to purchase the food bundles or ingredient boxes, we will be able to access a total of 17 online masterclasses and virtual food tours on the Webex virtual platform for absolutely free (yay!).

The masterclasses will likely be of particular interest to many as they offer some insight into how some of Singapore’s top gastronomes operate. Some chefs to look out for include the highly-acclaimed Julien Royer of three-Michelin starred Odette, who will be putting together one of his most popular salads featuring produce farmed in Singapore. Pastry guru Cheryl Koh meanwhile will be presenting an éclair-making workshop while Peranakan whiz Malcom Lee of Michelin-starred eatery Candlenut will be making his popular ayam buah keluak.

Fans of alcoholic beverages will also be able to tune in online to watch the dynamic bartending duo of Colin Chia and Charmaine Thio of speakeasy bar Nutmeg & Clove (ranked #32 in Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2020) teaching the basics of cocktail-making.
