If there’s one thing the Covid-19 Pandemic cannot stifle, it’s Singapore’s inherent penchant for food.
This year, the Singapore Food Festival 2021 (SFF 2021) aims to feed into this love with a virtual smorgasbord of educational, masterclasses and a virtual tour. First conceptualised in 1994, the Singapore Food Festival is going online for its second year in a row, and aims to push boundaries by allowing Singaporeans to share in all kinds of culinary experiences from home.
The virtual tour, for example, is an interactive “choose your adventure” style experience hosted by Nikki Muller. Viewers can select the trajectory of their experience in either Little India or Tiong Bahru and learn about iconic local dishes like chwee kueh or experimental new meals like vegetarian nasi lemak. The tour provides viewers with an in-depth look at how the food scene in Singapore boasts a huge variety of traditional and novel options even in the same neighbourhood.
Those who are interested in cooking as well as eating can head over to the “masterclass” tab and learn how to make dishes like devilled prawn curry from chef Rishi Naleendra or the unusual buah keluak babka loaf from patissier Maxine Ngooi.
The SFF 2021 has also partnered with Klook to bring us Secret Suppers where participants can sample secret menus in restaurants around Singapore on special dine-in dates along with other culinary experiences!
Continue to indulge your gastronomic desires amid the pandemic and head over to https://singaporefoodfestival.sg/ to enjoy the Singapore Food Festival 2021 from 27 Aug – 12 Sept 2021.
