Saveur is one of those places that Singapore should really be proud of. Conceived, owned and run by true blue Singaporeans, Saveur really delivers good French inspired fare at very wallet friendly prices. It started out in a corner coffee shop along East Coast road and was such a hit that they now not only have an established foothold in two shophouses along Purvis Street, they have also recently joined the big leagues and opened an outlet at Far East Plaza. I have always wanted to dine at Saveur, to experience first hand how fabulous the food was and to see for myself how reasonably priced the items were. We never made it to the East Coast branch although it was literally in our hood, but I am glad we finally made it to their Purvis Street flagship.

It has been two years in the making but I can finally say that I have been inaugurated to the food festival highlight of highlights here in sunny Singers. Having heard so much about the World Gourmet Summit, its workshops and of course the fabulous food on showcase from my Aunty T, I was all psyched up and ready to take it all in at my first gastronomic jam session. Held this year at the renewed Alkaff Mansion, the session was a little different from what I expected (think busy cooking show set!) but still fun overall. It was good seeing how the masterchefs recreate dishes that look phenomenal under 30 minutes and with ingredients and techniques you and I can manage. From starter to dessert, Indian to Mediterranean, the session really covered all grounds. The best part for me was watching Matt Moran cooking in the flesh! Truly a humble and genuine Australian bloke, he made a fab scotch egg dish that I might try to replicate at home for the boys!
Overall, it was a great experience and a really refreshing way to spend a day away from work. Looking forward to next year's summit and more food festivals!
