SINGAPORE - The third edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore's award ceremony returns on July 25 at Resorts World Sentosa.
Once again, chefs and restaurateurs alike will gather to find out which restaurants in Singapore received or retained the coveted Michelin stars.
There will also be a gala dinner, themed "The Past Through Tomorrow", which will be prepared by chefs from Michelin-starred establishments.
Those putting their spin on iconic Singapore dishes include chef Alvin Leung of three-Michelin-starred Bo Innovation in Hong Kong; chef Lam Ming Kin of one-Michelin-starred Longtail in Taipei; and chef Arnaud Dunand Sauthier of two-Michelin-starred Le Normandie Restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok.
Representing Singapore are chef Sun Kim of one-Michelin-starred Meta in Keong Saik Road; chef Emmanuel Stroobant of one-Michelin-starred Saint Pierre at One Fullerton; and chef Rishi Naleendra of one-Michelin-starred Cheek By Jowl in Boon Tat Street.
The six-course wine-pairing dinner is open to the public and priced at $595++ a person.
There will also be an invite-only trade seminar on July 27 for members of the food and beverage industry.
Mr Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides, along with a panel of industry experts, will share insights on the five criteria judged by Michelin inspectors. These include the chef's personality as expressed through his cuisine, mastery of flavours and cooking techniques, and consistency between visits. Registration is open from now till June 16.
The Bib Gourmand selection - which lists restaurants that offer good quality food at an affordable price - will be released one week before the Michelin Guide Singapore awards ceremony.
The French gastronomic guide, which covers cities all over the world, is put out by Michelin, a tyre company.
