Leaders Week Culinary Offerings A Showcase of Singapore’s Multi-Cultural Heritage

Singapore, as host of APEC Singapore 2009, will present delegates from the 21 economies with a gastronomical adventure of Singapore through the meals that will be offered during the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting (AELM) held from 14 to 15 November 2009. Through this culinary showcase, Singapore hopes to deliver a positive and memorable ‘Singapore Experience’ for all APEC delegates.

 “APEC delegates will be presented with a compelling buffet of culinary delights that is Uniquely Singapore. It gives them a chance to appreciate Singaporean cuisine which is a flavoursome concoction blending the country’s colourful multi-cultural heritage with a dash of its global and cosmopolitan outlook,” said Mr Soo Siew Keong, Programme Chair, APEC Accommodation, Hospitality and Singapore Experience Subcommittee, APEC Singapore 2009 Organising Committee.

The APEC Singapore 2009 Organising Committee has roped in locally renowned chefs, including Chef Anderson Ho (SATS Catering) Chef Yen Koh (Unilever FoodSolutions), Chef Wolfgang Ranner (Conrad Centennial Singapore), Chef Eric Teo (Mandarin Oriental) and Chef Otto Weibel (Fairmont Singapore) to specially create a delightful gastronomical journey for APEC delegates. The cuisines reflect Singapore’s culinary innovation and our unique blend of modernity and tradition. Leaders attending the AELM at the Istana can look forward to modern interpretations of local classics as well as a fusion menu that reflects Singapore’s cosmopolitian ethos at the waterfront dining at the “Singapore Evening at the Esplanade”.

Delegates attending the “Singapore Evening at the Esplanade” will also be presented with a multi-cultural waterfront dining experience, set against the backdrop of the upcoming Marina Bay developments and Singapore’s city skyline. They can enjoy a buffet spread that presents the unique cuisine of the Chinese, Indian, Malay and Peranakan cultures while immersing in the relaxing ambience and multi-cultural displays and performances that will feature the diversity and vibrancy of Singapore’s multi-cultural and multi-ethnic heritage.
