At the alfresco Gourmet Village will be 15 celebrity chefs, including Alain Passard, Virgilio Martinez Veliz, Chan Kwok, Emmanuel Stroobant and Gunther Hubrechsen, presenting their restaurants as well as signature creations. Visitors may use their Savour dollars to fill their tummies.
At the 5,000sqm air-conditioned Gourmet Market, one may sample hundreds of quality food products by artisan and specialty exhibitors from all over the world.
