SAVOUR, returns once more with its trademark mix of Michelin-starred chefs, award-winning restaurants, culinary activities and international food producers, all in one uniquely curated experience. Held over five days from 5th to 9th March, SAVOUR 2014 promises to be its best edition yet, with a line-up of new-generation culinary trendsetters and a brand new venue that is easily accessible.
The 2014 chef line-up consists of local stalwarts such as Bruno Menard and Emmanuel Stroobant, celebrity chefs such as Michael Caines (2 Michelin stars) and Henrik Yde (1 Michelin star) as well as James Knappett (Kitchen Table) and Mark Sergeant (Rocksalt). This year will see 20 restaurants over 4 days and over 50 signature dishes from $6 to $18.
The SAVOUR event space will be re-designed to recreate a rustic village-feel, with the restaurants interspered amidst feature bars, cafes, bakeries and dessert shops; all of which are purpose-built for the event. The ever-popular Gourmet Market also sees a revamp, where attendees can experience live filleting of large sea catches, over 100 variants of cheese and partake in an international selection of wines.
“In coming up with the design of the Gourmet Market, we have drawn inspiration from famous markets around the world,” says Aloysius Voon, Fresh Food Director of Jasons The Gourmet Grocer, which is SAVOUR 2014’s Presenting Partner. “We focus very much on the experience of ourcustomers so, in addition to sampling hundreds of quality products on offer, our attendees can engage in dialogue with product principals whom we are flying specifically for the event”.

Held in conjunction with i Light Marina Bay 2014, Asia’s only Sustainable Light Art Festival that will be held along Singapore’s Marina Bay Waterfront in March, the stunning views of Marina Bay waterfront promenade now provide a backdrop befitting of Singapore’s annual gourmet extravaganza. In addition, the venue has ample car parking in the vicinity and is within a minute’s walk from the newly opened Downtown MRT Station.
