SINGAPORE - The Great Food Festival (TGFF) returns this year for its second edition, with highlights such as a six-hands collaboration, baking masterclasses and gin appreciation sessions.

The six-hands meal will be led by Australian chef Dylan Jones, of Thailand's one Michelin-starred Bo.lan, at a pop-up concept kitchen called Tastes Of Siam. He will be collaborating with two other chefs from Thailand. Chef Num is the founder of Samuay And Sons, a restaurant which offers a modern take on traditional Thai cuisine, and Chef Khanaporn Janjirdsak's Trang Ko'e restaurant focuses on the specialities of southern Thailand.

The four-day festival, organised by Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), is on from Sept 27 to 30. A one-day pass starts from $30, while the top-tier Ultimate Fan Pass can cost up to $288. Tickets are available from the TGFF website.

Budding bakers who are fans of Matt Adlard, aka the Topless Baker, can get up close for a baking masterclass at a pop-up baking tent. Adlard, who has 266,000 Instagram followers and almost 280,000 YouTube subscribers, regularly appears topless in his video tutorials. But he is likely to be fully clad for his classes.
