Savour Singapore’s food culture, cuisine and history at the Singapore Food Festival 2019
Back for its 26 th year, the long-running Singapore Food Festival delves deep into the stories and experiences that drive the city-state’s food obsession
SFF lauds the pioneers of Singapore’s local food scene and encourages the innovation of Singaporean cuisine. It also aims to engage local and foreign visitors through sharing more about authentic Singaporean flavors and the culinary talents behind them. Ranita Sundramoorthy, Director of Retail and Dining, Singapore Tourism Board (STB), said: “The Singapore Food Festival continues to spotlight our vibrant and evolving local food scene that has been anchored by our unsung hawker heroes, home cooks, and chefs. With this year’s robust line-up of events, from private chef dinners and food tours around our heritage districts to theatrical dining experiences – Singaporeans and visitors will be able to taste Singapore’s diverse flavors and experience our food obsession first-hand.” “In its 26 th year, the Festival continues to be a highlight on the Singapore foodie calendar. SFF is a compelling testament to the richness and diversity of our food scene, further cementing our city-state’s reputation as a global culinary capital,” she added. From decade-old recipes reflecting multicultural heritage to forward-thinking mod-sin cuisine, this year’s events have been broadly organized into the four key pillars of SFF – modernity, culture, tradition, and art. The Singapore Food Festival kicks off at STREAT STREAT, the SFF’s signature event, will take place on July 12 and 13 at The Promontory @Marina Bay. Held in a casual and contemporary setting, STREAT will offer a range of traditional hawker fare and exciting mod-sin interpretations of Singapore street food from 12 establishments that showcase the breadth and depth of Singapore’s flavor tapestry.
