As usual at this period, they will come and leave their caravans for couples of days, full of food and drinks to consume or take away.
Using the same concept, since the creation of the event, different chefs, some from overseas but mostly locals, they continue to incorporate “supermarket” spaces with some nice product placement such as Maserati with cocktails…

The idea is, just after the main gate, you will have to buy some “Savour Dollar” at a cashier sponsored by DBS and you just follow a narrow path some canopy featuring the guests chefs…
For the Chefs or type of food you could find, the usual Alvin Leung from Bo Innovation (HK), Emmanuel Stroobant with St Pierre, Kiin Kiin from Denmark , Garagists from Australia (apparently closed), Midsummer House from UK, and some more common name in SG such as L’entrecote and the entire Delicae Group, Rochester group, Spathe, and more….
