Full house at gourmet food tast­ing pre­view

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Some 3,000 peo­ple turned up for the Malaysia In­ter­na­tional Gas­tron­omy Fes­ti­val (MIGF) pre­view to sam­ple some of the bite-sized tast­ing por­tions spe­cially pre­pared by 25 of Malaysia’s best restau­rants.

MIGF spokesman Michael Kuscher said re­sponse for the event this year has been over­whelm­ing and was the best they had since the fes­ti­val started some 15 years ago.

“Apart from sam­pling de­li­cious food served at the Theatre of Cuisine, vis­i­tors were also given the op­por­tu­nity to get valu­able cook­ing tips when they par­tic­i­pate in the Mas­ter Chef’s cook­ing classes and in­for­ma­tive work­shops.

“Fur­ther­more, this year’s line-up of par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants is among the best and most di­ver­si­fied in the fes­ti­val’s his­tory,” he said when met at Ber­jaya Times Square Ho­tel yes­ter­day, where the pre­view event was held.

He pointed out that when MIGF be­gins next month (Oct 1 - 31), spe­cial fes­ti­val menus will be avail­able at each of the par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants.

“To add ic­ing to the cake, th­ese menus will be avail­able at spe­cial fes­ti­val prices de­signed to make it eas­ier for food lovers to ex­pe­ri­ence the sump­tu­ous food,” he said.

Among the par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants are Sam­plings on the Four­teenth, Marini’s on 57, South­ern Rock Seafood Restau­rant as well as some of Gent­ing High­lands’ sig­na­ture out­lets, The Olive and L’ti­tude Restau­rant, Bar & Lounge. – by Adrian Phung
