Countdown to Epicurean Market begins


We’re just one week away from the food festival that celebrates the best foods! The stage is set for the return of Epicurean Market 2017, the hallmark food and wine celebration at Marina Bay Sands taking place from 11-13 August.

Expect Michelin-starred signature bites, to rare whiskies and spirits, farm-fresh produce and stellar master classes across three expansive halls.

This will be the fifth time Epicurean Market debuts in Marina Bay Sands, and we hear that this will be the best edition yet.

This year, ticket-holders get to enjoy a free signature dish worth $15 from participating outlets such as:

  • Adrift

  • Bread Street Kitchen

  • CUT by Wolfgang Puck

  • db Bistro & Oyster Bar

  • LAVO, Osteria and Pizzeria Mozza

  • RISE

  • Spag

  • The Bird Southern Table & Bar

  • Waku Ghin

The complimentary bites include Bread Street Kitchen’s signature Fish & Chips, one of the best-sellers during last year’s Epicurean Market.

Wines and spirit-lovers are also in for a treat as Epicurean Market welcomes five bars and 35 wine booths this year, the largest beverage programme put together so far.

Beyond the feasting, you will be able to experience plenty of non-stop action at the auditoriums as industry gurus gear up for 27 complimentary master classes on food, wine and spirits.

Pick up tips from renowned chefs such as two-Michelin starred chef Tetsuya Wakuda (Waku Ghin), Nancy Silverton (Mozza), David Myers (Adrift), David Thompson (Long Chim), Hide Yamamoto and Javed Ahamad (Punjab Grill) on mastering their respective cuisines.

Watch the chefs and sommeliers bring out their competitive sides with the Mystery Box Challenge and the inaugural Sommelier Blind Tasting Battle.

The Mystery Box Challenge, the festival’s epic culinary showdown, will pit Sabrina Stillhart (Executive Chef of Bread Street Kitchen) against three-time winner Jonathan Kinsella (Executive Chef of db Bistro & Oyster Bar).

Meanwhile, award-winning sommeliers Britt Ng from Bread Street Kitchen and Erwin Tang from Osteria Mozza will also battle it out at the first-ever Blind Tasting Battle.

And back by popular demand since its introduction last year, the Connoisseur Series is a selection of premium master classes led by the finest food, wine and spirits experts in the business.

For the first time at Epicurean Market, get up close with Ivan Karlić, a third-generation truffle hunter from the Buzet region, the truffle capital of Istria in Croatia, on his stories about truffle hunting and tasting.

Don’t forget to pick up fresh produce at close to wholesale prices at the Farmer’s Market where produce is air-flown from Asia, Europe and North America.

Our Foodie team will be roaming the halls of Marina Bay Sands at this event! Grab your tickets here and we’ll see you there!
