Opening Celebrations

Makan Mania of the 60s

 

Date: 1 每 3 July (Fri - Sun)

Time: 11am 每 9.30pm

Venue: Parco Bugis Junction

 

The Singapore Food Festival 2005 will open with a walk down memory lane as we showcase some of the authentic hawker fare and traditional delights from Singapore of the 60*s.

 

The streets of Parco Bugis Junction will be decorated to replicate that era, with each food zone dealing with a unique range of cuisine. Visitors can make themselves comfortable on wooden tables and chairs under canvas shelters and strings of motley &ping-pong* light bulbs.

 

One of the highlights will be the &Childhood Delights* consisting of stalls serving traditional favourites like Pineapple drinks, Chin Chow and Soya Bean drinks. A traditional Sarabat stall serving Teh Tarik and even a Satay stall in the evenings will complete the picture. Children and adults alike can also indulge in games like Five Stones, Kuti Kuti/Bottle Caps, Tikam Tikam, Hopscotch and other such innocent pastimes rarely seen today.

 

Clusters of stalls along Parco Bugis Junction will showcase the &Favourites of Yesteryears*. Long-time Singaporean favourites like Red Wine Chicken Soup, Rickshaw Noodles, Gado Gado, Indian Rojak, and Turtle Soup will be just some of the fare on offer. You can also expect sumptuous hawker classics like Oyster Cakes, Malay Kuih Muih, Hakka Abacus and Kambing Soup on sale and patrons will surely indulge in a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

 

A must-try is the Singapore Satay which consists of bite-size pieces of chicken, mutton and beef in a sweet-spicy marinade, strung on wooden skewers and grilled to perfection. Served with a punchy peanut sauce, fresh cucumbers, raw onion and steamed rice cakes, this is an all-time favourite. In the heydays when street hawkers roamed the neighbourhood, the appetizing aroma wafting from his portable grill was the Satay man*s calling card.

Weekend Event l

Deep Sea Medley

 

Date: 8 - 10 July (Fri 每 Sun)

Time: 5pm 每 12 midnight

Venue: East Coast Seafood Centre

 

Singapore has always been world renowned for its scintillating seafood selections# and a breathtaking variety of seafood will occupy pride of place at this event. It will be a showcase of uniquely Singaporean seafood where visitors can enjoy chilli or pepper crabs and barbequed seafood, and marvel at the rare and unique species of crabs and other seafood on display in tanks specially constructed for the occasion.

 

This is also a unique opportunity to experience history in the making 每 the winner of the Seafood Category of the New Dish Creation Competition, presented by homegrown supermarket NTUC FairPrice, will make its appearance here. Diners will also have the opportunity to taste the new dish and rate it. Who knows, you might be witnessing the next step in the evolution of Uniquely Singapore seafood cuisine.  

 

A must-try is Singapore*s unofficial ※national dish§ 每 Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab. Chilli Crab is a truly made-in-Singapore dish created decades ago by local chefs.  Each seafood stall has its own spin on the sauce, with fresh red chillies, garlic, ginger, tomato ketchup, and sometimes even eggs and peanuts added. Chilli Crabs are best enjoyed with a &hands-on* experience and each drop of the delicious sauce can be moped up with cubes of crusty French bread or Chinese buns (known as mantou).

 

Another favourite with the locals is Black Pepper Crab.  The thick and fragrant, spicy black pepper sauce smothers the crab, and you can expect a palate sensation that is both spicy and sweet.

 

Savour this scrumptious feast with an ice-cold Tiger beer, the official beer for this event, while the lush sea breeze, fragrances from the sizzling pits, the swaying palms and the rhythmic sounds of the ocean create the perfect backdrop. A carnival-like atmosphere will be created by roving entertainers who will help make your dining experience unforgettable.

 

 

UOB Credit and Debit Cardmembers will enjoy a complimentary mug of beer when you flash your UOB Card. Valid for the 1st 100 UOB Cardmembers each day. *Terms & Conditions apply.

Weekend Event ll

Sips and Bites Delight

 

Date: 15 每 17 July (Fri 每 Sun)

Time: 11am 每 12 midnight

Venue: Suntec Square, Suntec City

 

Where there*s brew, there will be snacks. That is what you can expect in Singapore, and at this event, you get to eat like the locals and pair the wide range of beverages with local favourites such as satay, otak otak, ngoh hiang and barbequed chicken wings. Come have a teh tarik (pulled tea) or a beer and pair it with any of the delicious snacks on offer.

 

Experience the early days of Singapore*s tea and coffee culture with endless combinations of &teh* - tea with milk and sugar, &teh-o* - tea with sugar, &teh kosong* - tea with milk and no sugar, &teh si* - tea with evaporated milk. See how these thick, sweet delights are prepared the traditional way, strained through a deceptively simple muslin bag stained dark with the dregs of tea and coffee.

 

Or ask for the traditional favourites of soya bean milk, chin chow or an adventurous mixture of both. Singaporeans enjoy these drinks around the clock, and often pair them with local snacks.

 

Popular breakfast combinations include &kopi-o* (black coffee with sugar) with kaya toast, a sweet egg-and-coconut jam spread generously over toasted bread and eaten with half-boiled eggs with a dash of black soya sauce. Slurp the eggs up with a spoon or scoop them up with the bread 每 locals do both.

 

The &spirited* ones can drink their fill of locally brewed beers to see how they compare with better-known international varieties. You will be pleasantly surprised at the strength, taste and potency of Singapore beer, enjoyed ice cold on hot tropical nights.

 

That*s not all# What is excellent brew and delectable finger food without some good, foot-tapping music? Local bands will be present at the venue to fill the air with heady beats, and you can expect to boogie the night away with the choicest drinks and food.

 

 

 

UOB Credit and Debit Cardmembers will receive a limited edition cup & saucer set when you flash your UOB Card. Valid for the 1st 50 UOB Cardmembers each day. *Terms & Conditions apply.

Weekend Event lll

Vegetarian and Fruits Jamboree

 

Date: 22 每 24 July (Fri - Sun)

Time: 11am 每 9pm

Venue: Parco Bugis Junction

 

 

There are so many ways to eat your vegetables and fruit. One of the ways is through a vegetarian diet. Visitors can learn more about all this information at the Vegetarian and Fruits Jamboree.

 

Brightly coloured produce provide a range of vital nutrients, including anti-oxidants that can help slow the ageing process and offer protection to the heart  

 

Visitors can learn to get the right nutritional balance in their diets by choosing fruits and vegetables based on their colour, of which there are four main groups: red, orange-yellow, green and blue-purple. Each provides a small group of healthful nutrients.

 

Marvel at the ingenuity of local chefs who will create vegetarian versions of uniquely Singapore dishes such as the Singapore Laksa.

 

Visitors can also taste an interesting range of tropical fruit and local juices, which are often exciting blends of various fruits.

 

Haagen-Dazs will create two special fruit and vegetable themed desserts 〞 with celery as the star for their blend of the day and a refreshing toss of ice-cream and fruits on a bed of lettuce for their ice-cream creation. This is something you don*t want your taste buds to miss!

 

As part of the Jamboree, Health Promotion Board is organising a 2+2 Healthy Cooking contest where members of the public are invited to submit recipes for dishes created using vegetables and fruits as the main ingredients. The submission must be made by a team of two, and the dish may be an appetizer, main course, dessert, or soup. Entries will be judged on taste, nutrition value, creativity and presentation. The deadline for submission is 15 July and the finals will be conducted at this Vegetarian and Fruit Jamboree event.

 

 

 

UOB Credit and Debit Cardmembers will get a chance to participate in the ※Wheel of Health§ when you flash your UOB Card. Valid for the 1st 100 UOB Cardmembers each day. *Terms & Conditions apply.

Weekend Event lV

Foodventure for Kids

 

Date: 23 每 31 July

Time: 11am 每 9pm

Venue: Civic Plaza, Ngee Ann City

 

A food adventure theme park for families, this event promises to inform, educate and entertain the young and old. Civic Plaza at Ngee Ann City will be transformed into a veritable wonderland of food and fun to engage and enthral your family. Explore a fantasy palace of bread, take a sugar and spice express, and work your way through a maze of vegetables, or attend art and craft workshops and nutrition talks.

 

Fancy your buns? How about a palace full of them! At the Istana Bread-elicious, you can purchase kid-size buns, learn how to make bread from the chef and let your kids* creative juices flow as they try their hand at creating their very own flavour of bread.

 

Did you know that Singapore has its own organic farms? At the Vegi-Maze, kids can explore the maze and join fun-filled workshops about organic farming, discover the importance of vegetables and fruits in their diet and learn how to prepare delicious meals with these produce.

 

Old MacDonald may have had a farm, but he would be chuffed to have one like the ※Nong Fu§ (Farmer*s) Market, where you can find food kiosks modelled after a farm. Sample local delights such as popiah and kueh pie ti.

 

If sweets are more your fancy, you mustn*t miss the Sugar & Spice Express where you can find vendors selling old time snacks such as dragon beard candy, kachang puteh, traditional ice-cream and ice balls. Entertain your children with stories of yesteryear as you savour the taste of old time Singapore.

 

The Wayang House will be a great way to get some rest from all that eating. Parents will be able to sit down and listen to a talk on children*s nutrition, while children take part in art & craft workshops, allowing them to literally play with their food. Kids can also sit down and watch performances and join in contests to win attractive prizes.

 

Don*t miss this great opportunity to spend time with your family and have fun with food at Foodventure!

Tastes of Chinatown

 


Date: 8 每 31 July

Time: 11am 每 9pm

Venue: Chinatown

 

It may seem strange that there would be a Chinatown in Singapore, but that*s where most of the Chinese settled when they first arrived here. It is this place, then, that is the origin of much of Singapore Chinese cuisine# and an ideal starting point for the &Best of Chinatown Food Trail* event in the Singapore Food Festival 2005 calendar.

 

The month-long celebration will explore the tastes of Chinatown, and its place in the Uniquely Singapore experience.

 

Highlights of the event include the creation of a ※Chinatown Signature Dish§ by Masterchefs Lau Yeok Pui, Sin Leong and Hooi Kok Wai. Hailed as the Three Heavenly Kings, they are revered for their wealth of experience in bringing back the forgotten dishes of the 40s and 50s. Besides representing Singapore in worldwide culinary events, the Heavenly Kings have also showcased their creativity and skills in memorable occasions such as the Singapore Heavenly Banquet and the Dream of the Red Chamber Banquet. Once again, these three famous chefs join hands to cook up a Dish of Passion#one that speaks Singapore and its people.  The treasured recipe will be auctioned for charity after its maiden launch on 8 July 2005.  Visitors can help to name the dish by participating in the Signature Dish Naming Contest.

 

Visitors can also enjoy the Best of Chinatown Food Trail.  A Food Trail map available at participating Chinatown restaurants and foodstalls will detail myriad tastes and unique offerings to titillate one*s tastebud. Come treat your palate and win attractive prizes by voting for the Best of the Bests. 

 

Even if you have been to Chinatown before, don*t miss it during the Singapore Food Festival 2005, for it is especially at this time that you will see Chinatown in all its glory. After all, the event combines two of the greatest passions of the Chinese 每 good food and a great celebration!

The award-winning Singapore Zoo is one of the main tourist attractions that most visitors head for when they arrive in Singapore. The zoo sprawls across a relatively large (for land-scarce Singapore) area in Mandai, right next to the Mandai Reservoir, and is artfully designed so that cages and enclosures are kept to a minimum. Even the more &dangerous* species like tigers and lions are kept in what appears to be an open area, so that they may be viewed with minimum obstruction.

 

For the &Tutti Frutti Jungle Breakfast*, guests will be served a healthy jungle breakfast with a tropical fruits theme. While you are eating, you may be surprised with the appearance of a few of the zoo*s &friendly animals*, such as the orang utan or python. You*ll have the benefit of a 20 to 30 minute talk about the animals at the zoo, as well as a great photo opportunity with the animals.

 

So do head on over to the Singapore Zoo for the &Tutti Frutti Jungle Breakfast* experience. Not only will you get to enjoy a great healthy breakfast, you*ll also get up close and personal with the animals.

Cookery Magic*s Old Singapore, kampong style

 

Date: 2 and 30 July (Sat)

Time: 8.30am - 2pm

Venue: Kampong House on Pulau Ubin

Price: S$68 (Including ferry and bus ride on the island)

 

The idea of living in a kampong (village of wooden huts) may be foreign to most Singaporeans now, but kampong living was endemic in Singapore in the 1960s.

 

The classes, organised in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival 2005, will take you back in time for a look at the way Singapore was and the cuisine that defined the period. Here, a select group will learn more about a traditional speciality that has almost died out 每 Nasi Kerabu or Herbed Rice.

 

After a 10-minute ride on a bumboat from Changi Jetty, participants will visit an authentic kampong and go on a herb hunt in the surrounding jungle. Some of the herbs to be gathered during this hunt include lemon grass, ginger flowers, galangal (blue ginger), fresh turmeric, Chinese celery, laksa leaves, aromatic ginger leaves and young cashew leaves.

 

Having sourced these sometimes difficult to find herbs, the participants will head back to the house in the kampong to prepare, learn all about and enjoy Nasi Kerabu. In the process, they will learn about Singaporeans during the early years of independence, their cooking and their fascinating way of life.

 

The kampongs were the humble precursors to the mighty metropolis that is Singapore today# Come learn more about this vital part of Singapore history and culture. You*ll have a nice taste of the times too!

 

UOB Credit and Debit Cardmembers will enjoy a special price S$60.

A Fresh Start with Orchid

 

Date: 9 July (Sat)

Time: 2pm 每 4pm

Venue: Viewing Gallery, Mandai Orchid Garden

Price: S$55

 

Singapore is the place to be if you want to be adventurous with your cuisine. Here, gourmands and gourmets have left no stone unturned in their insatiable quest for new tastes and flavours. In keeping with this year*s &Uniquely Singapore* theme, the Singapore Food Festival will feature an &A Fresh Start with Orchid workshop in Singapore*s very own Mandai Orchid Garden. The garden boasts of one of the largest collections of orchids in the world.

 

Not many people know a lot about the fascinating orchid, other than it is Singapore*s claim to horticultural fame. The aim of this workshop is twofold: One is to expose locals and visitors to the fascinating collection of the Garden and its organic orchard; the other is to incorporate the organic harvest of the Garden into variations of local cuisine.

 

Participants will be invited to harvest the orchids they like. They can then use the organically grown flowers they have harvested and, under the supervision of professional chefs, turn them into ingredients for use in local favourite dishes. The &A Fresh Start with Orchid* workshop will be conducted at the viewing gallery overlooking the vintage orchid garden.

 

The first dish participants will try is &Black Pepper Diced Chicken with Orchids in Filo Nest*, an interesting break from the traditional yam basket. Go avant-garde with stir-fried black chicken with crunchy orchids on a crispy filo pastry nest.

 

Next up is &Deep-fried Prawns in Orchid Lemon Sauce*# forget the commonly used lemon sauce# swim into uncharted waters with finger-licking good whole prawns, in a specially-concocted sauce laced with organically grown orchids.

 

Finally, there is the tantalizing appetiser &Tossed Duck with Orchid & Honey Dew*, a great palate teaser to get your gastric juices flowing. Participants get to make a Chinese salad with a twist 每 think fine dining, with flowers.

 

So if you really want to know just how an orchid tastes and how it can be incorporated into food, get over to the &Orchid Gastronomy* workshop at the Singapore Food Festival for a uniquely Singaporean food adventure to write home about!

It may come as a surprise that some uniquely Singaporean dishes to this day retain some of its element from our British colonial past. 40 years may have passed since Singapore was declared an independent state. However, Singapore had been a British colony for more than a century before that.

 

This is not a throwback to traditional British cuisine, rather, the &colonial cuisine* on offer is an interesting blend which borrows ingredients and techniques from both local and European cuisine. &Colonial Cookboy Classics* will take you on a voyage of discovery of such unusual combinations as &Anglo-Hainanese* and &Anglo-Indian* cuisines, which combine the rich, full-bodied flavours of Asian cooking with a European adaption.

 

So for a taste of an era long past, check out &Colonial  Cookboy Classics*# you may be surprised to find that your favourite Singaporean dish has some of its roots in British or European cuisine. For more information, please visit www.shermay.com

Local Gourmet Cookout

 

Date: 16 July (Sat)

Time: 2pm 每 4pm

Venue: Viewing Gallery, Mandai Orchid Garden

Price: S$55

 

 

Imagine the deliciously divine aroma of a uniquely Singapore dish wafting across a garden full of beautiful orchids# that*s what your senses will be treated to when you attend the &Local Gourmet Cookout* workshop. It*s not just plain fare you*ll be learning about# how do you think your family and friends will react when you serve them authentic Singapore-style Chilli Crab?

 

That*s the first dish you*ll learn to cook at the 'Local Ethnic Fare' workshop. You*ll not only learn how to cook Singapore*s most well-known seafood dish, our seasoned chefs will also provide tips on choosing the best crabs, and guide you through the various processes designed to make succulent, finger-licking crustacean fare.

 

Next on the menu is Mee Goreng or fried noodles, a fragrant favourite of the Singaporean Malay community. Many an earnest Singapore cook has tried their hand at this dish, only to be disappointed at the outcome 每 the noodles will more often than not turn out soggy or burnt. This session will reveal all about working the wok, turning the noodles with a flick of the wrist, and (for the particularly gifted) doing it all with a flourish! The making of this true-blue Singaporean favourite is a veritable art form, and your performance will certainly impress your friends and family.

 

Yet another perennial favourite with the locals is the robustly-flavoured Indian Fish Curry. It may surprise that this dish is favoured in such a hot and humid climate, but some swear that it is particularly the aromatic and spicy nature of the dish that makes it suitable for the tropics. Chef Ramu of Ramu's Indian Fish Curry will be on hand to teach you how to create and serve this dish. To make things more interesting, you will learn to make your Indian Fish curry with canned sardines.

 

Yet another exclusive event organised by Mandai Orchid Garden, you would be well advised to make your bookings in advance to avoid disappointment.

Cantonese Cuisine Classics

 

Date: 21 每 23 July (Thu 每 Sat)

Time: 3pm 每 5 pm (21, 22 July)

         2pm 每 4 pm (23 July)

Venue: Shermay*s Cooking School 

Price: S$50 per person (Weekdays)

          S$60 per person (Weekends)

 

Cantonese cuisine today is renowned the world over for its refined flavours and exquisite textures. This is no different in Singapore, where many of the best Chinese restaurants serve Cantonese fare. Singaporean Cantonese cuisine has changed much since the days of the early immigrants, but sadly, some of the old favourites such as paper-wrapped chicken have disappeared.

 

The &Cantonese Cuisine Classics workshop, based on resurrected recipes long lost or forgotten in the general public psyche, will expose selected visitors to fascinating delights like Crispy Noodles Topped with Meat & Vegetables, Chicken & Cashew Stir-Fry, Tao You Bak (pork belly stewed in garlic & soy sauce) served with Man Tou (steamed Chinese bread), Paper-Wrapped Chicken, Sweet & Sour Pork, Homemade Char Siew (roasted pork with a tangy sweet flour) and Pork Spareribs.

 

For older Singaporeans and past visitors to Singapore, these dishes will bring to mind many memories of Singapore in the 40s and 50s# and remind of such icons as the Cathay Restaurant at the old Cathay building, where famous Cantonese Chef Tham Yu Kai held court in the post-War years.

 

So come over to the &Cantonese Cuisine Classics* workshop, for a trip back into Singapore*s history. For more information, please visit www.shermay.com

Fresh Picks from the Orchard

 

Date: 23 July (Sat)

Time: 2pm 每 4pm

Venue: Viewing Gallery, Mandai Orchid Garden

Price: S$55

 

A modern metropolis Singapore may be with its skyscrapers and neat high-rise housing, but some elder Singaporeans will still remember when they lived in small villages known locally as &kampongs*. One of the features of kampong living was the immediate availability of delicious fruit within plucking distance, which the children would harvest with glee. The kampongs may be gone now, but the Mandai Orchid Garden, together with Gourmet Haven, is offering visitors a chance to taste these juicy tropical harvests at the &Fresh Picks from the Orchard* workshop.

 

Unlike the days of old, however, this workshop provides participants with more than just a sampling of fruits after a local meal. It offers tips and hints about supplementing the taste and texture of your food by cooking it with locally-available fruit. The fusion of traditional dishes with fruit, not a mainstay of local cooking, is interesting to say the least.

 

One of the first dishes you will try is 'Stir-Fried Fish Slices with Aloe Vera'.  Widely acknowledged as healthy food, aloe vera cooked with fish slices is more than just a healthy alternative 每 the flavour of the fish combined with the fresh tang of aloe vera is a taste experience to be relished.

 

The combination of sweet and sour tastes within a dish may be a regular feature in South East Asian cuisine, but there wouldn*t be many Singaporeans who would be familiar with the cooking of Lychee Prawns in Pineapple Puree.  The slight tartness of the pineapple works in tandem with the sweetness of the lychee in this dish that brings out the fresh taste of the prawns# an interesting addition to any budding chef*s repertoire.

 

The final dish you will create is an appetiser with a clever twist 每 Jackfruit with Chicken in Sesame Sauce. This unlikely combination is interesting for how the individual ingredients combine to produce a flavourful and sweet dish. As with the other dishes, a master chef will be on hand to instruct and help with any enquiries you may have.

 

The &Fresh Picks from the Orchard* workshop is a unique experience worth attending. Make sure you sign up for the limited places before it*s too late.

Peranakan Heritage and Food Tour

 

Date: 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 July (Sun)

Time: 9am 每 12.30pm

Price: S$22

 

Singapore is home to one of the most unique communities - the Peranakan. Also known as the &Baba* community, the Peranakans have been living, working and enriching the cuisine of the Straits region with their trademark flair since the 16th century.

 

Organised by the Mandarin Language Tourist Guides of Singapore in association with the Singapore Food Festival, this food trail will cover much more than food# it will provide insights into the lives of the Babas. The tour, led by experienced guides, will cover the history and origins of the Babas, their heritage and culture (customs, weddings and costumes), the lip-smacking range of Peranakan cuisine and even a special insight into the history of the Peranakan Cultural District in Singapore.

 

In keeping with the spirit of the Singapore Food Festival, the spotlight will be on Peranakan or Nyonya food. Nyonya cuisine is well-known for its spices and flavours, which are a mouth-watering amalgam of Chinese and Malay culinary traditions. Popular Nyonya dishes include Nonya Curry Chicken, Ayam Buah Keluak, Itek Sio, Bakwan Kepiting, Babi Pongteh, Sayur Lodeh, Udang Assam Nanas Pedas and Sambal Tau Hoo.

 

You will also get the opportunity to taste this as part of the tour, when you stop at a Straits Chinese Seafood Restaurant for an eight-course meal that includes Kueh Pie Tie, Ikan Assam Nanas Pedas, Ayam Curry, Sotong Sambal, Nonya Chap Chye, Babi Pong Teh, Bakwan Kepiting Soup, Sambal Timun, Chendol and Nonya Kueh. Long after you have left the table, your tastebuds will be left tingling with the memory of your meal.

 

The &Peranakan Heritage and Food Tour* is yet another exclusive event that will demonstrate what makes Singapore so unique.

Venue: Singapore History Museum 

Price:   S$30 per adult

          S$25 per student

This unique food trail will be instructive for those who want to know more about these foods and the traditions, culture and beliefs that underlie their making.

 

You will join Heritage Guide Diana Chua as she takes you traipsing around Chinatown. She will regale you with tales and insights into the background of the various ethnic Chinese groups, their unique festivities and even trivia about Chinatown itself.

 

As you walk around the historical area, grab the chance to have a behind-the-scene peek into the lives of workers actually preparing these foods. You can even use the opportunity to savour these tasty morsels, fit for the Gods themselves. Like some of the other Singapore Food Festival events, this is an exclusive one-time opportunity. So make your bookings now for a journey into the quaint, old Chinatown district to find out just what makes an out-of-this-world tidbit.

Closing date for entries: 15 July 2005

 

 

Grab a partner and start working on a healthy new recipe based on fruit and vegetables, and you could win cash and be featured in a recipe booklet!

 

The Health Promotion Board is organising the 2+2 Cooking Competition 2005 in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival 2005 to encourage people to eat more fruit and vegetables. Teams of two are invited to present their best healthy, fruit- and vegetable-based dishes to experienced judges as well as selected audience members.

The deadline for entries is 15 July. Twenty recipes will be selected for the finals to be held on 23 & 24 July, at the Food Festival*s Vegetarian & Fruits Jamboree event, at Parco Bugis Junction. The 20 finalists will then present their recipes to the panel of judges, and a pre-selected number of audience members.

&Pleasures of Cooking* with City Gas

 

Date: 2, 23, 24, 30 每 31 July

Venue:  2 July 每 Makan Mania of the 60s

 23 July Foodventure for Kids        

   24 July Vegetarian & Fruits Jamboree

            30, 31 July 每 Singapore Makan Delights @ Food World

 

City Gas is pleased to present the Pleasures of Cooking by Luo Ziwei, a renowned food columnist for more than 35 years. City Gas is the official Town Gas supplier of the Singapore Food Festival 2005.

 

City Gas believes that family bonds are cemented by shared meals. The gas supplier is at the heart of many Singaporean families, providing piped gas to households for their daily cooking, washing and laundry activities.

 

More than 85% of homes in Singapore rely on City Gas. Besides the residential markets, City Gas is also very active in supporting its commercial and industrial customers.

 

Like City Gas, Luo Ziwei, veteran food columnist, editor, poet and award-winning food historian, has been a major influence on the local culinary scene through his long running column in Lianhe Bao, Singapore's leading Chinese daily.

 

His well-researched food reviews and intimate knowledge of the cultural elements of food have made him a point of reference for even the most experienced chefs. He has also made his own mark on the preservation of Singapore's rich culinary heritage with a new cookbook that will document Cantonese family cooking.

 

"Dad & Company" (о腔佌滇粕) is co-authored with his daughter, culinary consultant, cookbook author and publisher, Dr Pauline D Loh. It will launch during the Singapore Food Festival 2005.

 

His recipes are simple but attractive, adapted from more complicated traditional methods but still retaining all the flavours that so characterise good Chinese cooking. It is a friendly philosophy which has been inherited and preserved in Pauline's cooking style.

 

City Gas is proud to have Mr Luo and Pauline to articulate its supply of Continuous, Safe, Reliable and Hygienic town gas through their authentic and signature Chinese cuisine creation.  Not only do such cuisines remind us of the goodness of home-cooked food, it also signifies City Gas*s ※Warming Hearts in the City§.
