Mark your calendar and empty your stom­ach as this mouth-wa­ter­ing fes­ti­val looks set to sa­ti­ate all sorts of ap­petites. From Septem­ber 21 to 24, The GREAT Food Fes­ti­val (TGFF) will be mak­ing its de­but at Re­sorts World Sen­tosa. A col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the renowned re­sort and Savour Events—famed for their epony­mously named an­nual food fes­ti­val—TGFF will host a glit­ter­ing list of star chefs and a spread of tan­ta­lis­ing din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

With over 40 in­vited culi­nary mavens from around the globe fill­ing the plates along­side Re­sort World’s very own sta­ble of Miche­lin-starred and award-win­ning chefs, TGFF will be the largest gourmet event in Sin­ga­pore. As tempt­ing as it is to want to try ev­ery­thing, plan­ning, as so in cook­ing, is es­sen­tial.

There are five seg­ments held within the two-hectare re­sort: Star Chef Arena, Her­itage Lane, Rollin’ Sweet Times, Feast of Kings and the Con­nois­seur Col­lec­tion.

Star Chef Arena is where visi­tors can get their hands on more than 50 kinds of dishes whipped up by chefs such as Italy’s En­rico and Roberto Cerea from three Miche­lin-starred Da Vit­to­rio, Flo­rian Favario—Eric Fre­chon’s pro­tégé from Miche­lin-starred Céleste at The Lanes­bor­ough in Lon­don and Ben Spald­ing, an alum­nus of The Fat Duck and L’En­clume. The re­sort’s res­i­dent chefs from Miche­lin-starred restau­rants such as Osia Steak and Seafood Grill, Syun and Joël Robu­chon Restau­rant will also be show­cas­ing their culi­nary mas­ter­pieces.

With day passes priced at SGD78—which in­cludes SGD35 cred­its to spend at Star Chef Arena and SGD10 cred­its at Rollin’ Sweet Times, a show­case of over 300 de­lec­ta­ble desserts and pas­tries—visi­tors will be spoilt for choice. Oh, did we men­tion that the price in­cludes ac­cess to the Her­itage Lane, a seg­ment that fea­tures a selec­tion of over 50 dishes made from sto­ried fam­ily recipes and meth­ods passed down through the gen­er­a­tions? Yes, we have.

For the Feast of Kings and Con­nois­seur Col­lec­tion, visi­tors must act fast to reg­is­ter on­line as seats are lim­ited. For the for­mer, dine like the Kings and Lords of yore with dishes cu­rated by 10 Miche­lin-starred chefs. For the lat­ter, a se­ries of three dif­fer­ent four-hands din­ner will see a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween chefs from Star Chef Arena and res­i­dent chefs from Re­sorts World Sen­tosa cook­ing up a storm.

If this doesn’t make you hun­gry, we don’t know what will.
