Aussie And Singaporean Foodies Dine Together At Virtual Dinner Party

February 23, 2018 Visit ASEAN No Comments Email Email

Singapore Tourism Board last night hosted media and influencers from both Australia and Singapore at a simultaneous virtual dinner party, uniting both countries over their shared passion for good food.

The event paired guests from both countries via an immersive technology setup[1] for an intimate and fun dining experience, while they feasted on a menu designed by celebrity chefs.

Held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore and Sydney, the dinner provided a unique opportunity to meet new friends, despite the 6,300-kilometre distance.

According to Singapore Tourism Board Area Director Oceania, Stephanie Yong: “It’s a well-known fact that Singaporeans are passionate over our food, but this is also because every meal is an opportunity for us to connect with family and friends.  Our dining scene is incredibly diverse and spans affordable hawker food from our multi-cultural heritage, through to innovative gastronomy by many local and celebrity chefs.  We’ve seen a similar passion for food in the Australian dining scene too, so we’re looking forward to providing Australian foodies with the opportunity to sample our unique cuisine and experience our warm hospitality.”

Two chef collaborations, one savoury and one sweet, teamed up to create the celebratory menu inspired by the Lion City.

Adam Liaw (Sydney) x Malcolm Lee (Singapore)

Adam Liaw, host of SBS Destination Flavour, author and Masterchef winner, in collaboration with Malcolm Lee, founder of the world’s only Michelin-starred Peranakan[2] restaurant,Candlenut, teamed up to create a modern-day spin on Hainanese Chicken Rice. The dish fuses their shared passion for heart-felt heritage cooking, combined with unexpected flavours from one of Singapore’s other ‘must-try’ iconic dishes, chilli crab.

Anna Polyviou (Sydney) x Janice Wong (Singapore)

Shangri-La Sydney’s ‘punk princess of pastry’, Anna Polyviou and 2am:dessertbar ‘culinary artist’, Janice Wong ended the night on a sweet note, serving up a show-stopping full-sensory dessert experience. The award-winning chefs took varied inspiration from Singapore including the tropical environment, with its incredible fresh fruit and spices, through to the iconic skyline that encompasses both old and new architecture.

The dinner also marks the Australian launch of the Board’s new global brand – Passion Made Possible – which celebrates the spirit and attitude of a city whose tenacity and innovation continually create new experiences and possibilities for its people and visitors.

Singapore Tourism Board will tonight host a second dinner for Australian and Singaporean foodies who have registered to secure a coveted place.
