As one of the signature events of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, the Masterclasses will offer exclusive up-close access to the cream of global culinary talent on Sunday 23rd June, 2019.
Masterclasses will give guests a chance to witness dishes being created by Copenhagen’s culinary genius and multiple-time award winner, Rasmus Kofoed; to discover Peruvian cuisine with Virgilio Martínez and Pía León, the husband-and-wife team behind Central in Lima, Peru; or pick the brain of trail-blazing Gaggan Anand, whose eponymous restaurant in Bangkok has topped the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list a record four times.
Sunday 23rd June, 9.45am – 11.15am: Rasmus Kofoed, Geranium
Dive into Scandinavia’s gastronomic waters with a tour of wild and organic seafood dishes. Kofoed takes to the stage to explain his food philosophy via a menu that includes some of the best seafood cookery the world has seen, served in guises that toy with diners’ interpretation of the norm.
Sunday 23rd June, 12noon – 1.30pm: Virgilio Martínez and Pía León, Central
Learn about the cutting-edge Peruvian fare served at the three-time winner of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants. The couple take into account elevation, topography and idiosyncratic ecosystems in their dishes to whisk diners on an extraordinary journey from sea to land and mountains.
Sunday 23rd June, 2.15pm – 3.45pm: Gaggan Anand, Gaggan
Meet the chef behind Gaggan in Bangkok, which will take its final bow in June 2020. This Masterclass marks an opportunity to hear from the Kolkata-born chef who gave the world a new vision of Indian food that marries space-age techniques with centuries-old traditions.
Masterclasses will be held at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre. Tickets are priced at S$150 each, and are available via MarinaBaySands.com/W50B.
