SINGAPORE - ST Life editor Tan Hsueh Yun will be hosting Posh Nosh By Hsueh: An Omakase Experience at the upcoming Singapore Coffee Festival 2017.

It will feature an eight-course menu that she put together, featuring a sampling of what is being offered by the 70 food and beverage vendors taking part in the festival. Ms Tan says she based her choices "on what sounded interesting to me, and what I had tasted before and found good".

She will host four sessions at the festival venue at the Marina Bay Cruise Centre: two each on Aug 5 and 6, at noon and 5pm. The festival is organised by The Straits Times and presented by DBS Bank.

Each session is priced at $88 a person. Diners can choose from two menus, each consisting of three savoury items, three sweet treats and two drinks.

Spaces are limited, however, with room for just 20 diners at each session.
