Savour is a gathering for foodies….imagine all the Restaurant Week restaurants, all your favourite grocery stalls and all free cooking lessons gathered in one place. 44 SGD (of which 21-24 is your pocket money) is ridiculously cheap if you want to have a wholesome epicurean journey but don’t have the luxury of wealth and time to sample all the restaurants within one week.
Australian grass-fed beef from Diamantina.
Or indulge in some caviar if you have the money. They offered tastings of a selection of roe too.
If haven’t tried Iberico ham, you get to taste it here, the Italian prosciutto is just next door.
Macarons by de la Crème looks yummy but we didn’t get to try.
If you are into teas, look out for the elegant looking tea bags by Tea Forte. Beautifully crafted pyramid tea bags come in all sorts of flavours such as Lemongrass Ginger, Citron Chamomile and classics like Earl Grey.
Aequitas Gourmet introduced Le Chateau Blanc macarons during the French Festival 2011 wowed us with a curry flavoured cheese.
Food toys from Japan brought in by Candy Play can be found here too.
Here is video on how it works.
ThreeSixty Marketplace also sells clotted cream!
There are many more stalls to explore at the Gourmet Market but now we head for a meal at the Gourmet Village.
The next item is the perfect aglio olio of the Far East. The Har Mei Lo Mein (9 SD), with har mei oil and powder is a very well executed pasta dish packed with the right amount of spiciness, oliness and crunchiness from the generous amount of roe and spring onions. This is simply addictive, I am already missing this dish!
As we are exploring the Gourmet Market and Gourmet Village, workshops, speeches, demonstrations and lessons are going on all the time, it is hard to get idle with so many activities to take part (and it is free).
