Taste Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) Gala Night 2013

Last Friday the Taste MIGF is back, bigger and even more exciting. This spectacular MIGF 2013 preview event now stretches over three days and nights, during which the general public are invited go on a Super Gourmet Safari to sample Festival Menu tasting portions from each of the 28 Festival restaurants. The specially created Theatre of Cuisines is the stunning venue, within the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to witness the launching of this awesome event where it is a dream for many foodies (Food Bloggers) to attend. It was a 3 days event and Food lovers lucky enough to experience Taste MIGF 2012 know that they are in for another outstanding experience at the 2013 edition. The Taste MIGF concept is unique, with no counterpart within Malaysia, the region, and possibly the rest of the world. The basic premise is to give food lovers from all walks of life – not just a privileged few – ready access to the world of fine dining: one which is relaxed and enjoyable, without any of the fast-disappearing stuffy, starched-table-cloth era. And, additionally, where realistic and affordable prices are the norm.

Me and my photography sifu Jim Liaw (Jim Liaw Photography) who attend together with me for this grand event.

The Taste MIGF Super Gourmet Safari is the ideal introduction to premium dining for everyone. Malaysia’s finest restaurants each have a station in the brilliantly presented Theatre of Cuisines, and each offer taste samples from their actual Festival menus. The samples incidentally, are big enough to allow a full appreciation of the dish itself, yet small enough to ensure that all the restaurant offerings can be tried.

Live entertainment from concert bands, professional dancers and non-stop deejay music, together with a large dance floor, will provide a swinging party atmosphere.

The Malaysia International Gourmet Festival is the globally acknowledged, month-long event promoting premium dining to the nation and the world. This year’s theme is “Cool Chefs – Cooking With Attitude”, and is an exciting platform for the Festival’s brilliant Master Chefs to out- do themselves in fierce but friendly competition. Having witnessed ever-increasing success each year since its inception in 2001, MIGF is the region’s premier and most celebrated fine food event, and now officially a part of Tourism Malaysia’s “Fabulous Food 1Malaysia” initiative.

The festival basically are participated by 28 renowned restaurants in KL that are expert in serving their respective international and local cuisines.
