Asian Masters returns for its fourth edition from Nov 1 to Dec 7, 2013 and promises exquisite gastronomic treats and memorable dining experiences.
This year, Asian Masters is set to dazzle patrons with a star-studded line up of guest chefs including not one, but two chefs from two Michelin-starred restaurants - Chef Mok Kit Keung from Hong Kong and Chef Hajime Yoneda from Japan, both making their first appearances at Asian Masters. Also making a debut at the event are celebrity Chef Chumpol Jangprai, known as the Iron Chef of Thai Cuisine, and Chef Alex Park from Korea.
Besides an impressive line up of chefs, Asian Masters will also feature the pairing of top French "star" wines such as the E.Guigal's La Las and Chateau La Mission with great food by Chef Fok Kai Yee of Summer Pavilion and Chef Sebastian Lepinoy of Les Amis respectively.
Along with the traditional wine pairing dinners which are perennial favourites, Asian Masters will excite the palates of discerning gourmands with innovative and unexpected cocktail and whisky pairing dinners. Showcasing a whole new and different facet of traditional pairing dinners will be the Absolut Expressions by The Disgruntled Chef, pairing modern European cuisine with cocktails using vodkas by Absolut and more.
Adding a touch of fine art and glamour to the Asian Masters line-up, a very select group of guests will be invited to a once in a lifetime opportunity to create their own unique Chinese crystal artpieces at the "The Craft of LIULI by Loretta H. Yang" conducted by the founders of famed luxury crystal art brand LIULIGONGFANG, Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi, who are also Golden Horse Award winners and masters of the traditional crystal art technique of pate-de-verre.
The popular Asian Masters Gala Dinner by the Singapore National Culinary Team will return, while the Asian Masters Charity Dinner is back for a second year.
