Savour is back!

Savour 2013 is just around the corner. I also say Christmas is coming but that's perhaps another story for another time. Moohehe.

This cow trotted down to a media preview of Savour 2013 and now reports.

Savour's Darren Chen addressing the guests. Brownie points for the grass! LOL.

Gourmet supermarket Jasons will have a presence like last year's, offering a selection of chilled beef, cheeses, wines, seafood and other gourmet produce.

At this preview, they brought a delicious selection of cheeses. I particularly liked the 30-month aged Parmesan! :D

New on the market and also making a splash at Savour will be Soda Stream. A nifty machine that will be great for fizzheads, allowing them to customise and make their own sodas economically at home.

Here's Chef Moon from Mikuni. Arguably my favourite station, chef presented 3 dishes that would be also made available at his booth at Savour.

This truffle-perfumed tinned dish reminded me of a cross between sashimi and ceviche.

His salt baked pork belly with Sakura was outstandingly yummy. Meaty, tender and with a beautiful aroma and flavour.

Phoon Huat displayed some cupcakes and ingredients. Not quite sure why. Oh they had an item called Shake and Bake that supposedly lets one add all the batter ingredients, shake to mix and then pop the whole thing into the oven to bake. Sounds convenient eh.

Nespresso is Savour 2013's presenting partner and official coffee.

At Nespresso's booth, we had a go at making our own Tiramissu using shots of their espresso.

I quite enjoyed the Roma Espresso Martini featuring Nespresso Roma espresso, Ron Zacapa 23 Rum, honey syrup and Grand Marnier. One serving will do just fine. Any moore and the caffeine and alcohol combination might be dangerous. Moohehe.

Sssspeaking of alcohol, Equatorial Wines will be giving visitors a chance to blend their own wines from a selection of straight varietals. Now you can have your own blend and name it after you! :p

Check out my experience at Savour last year.

Expect free culinary workshops, 18 international top tier restaurants serving over 60 signature dishes and over 25 award-winning chefs this year! Don't say I didn't say. Tickets are selling fast.
