This month’s biggest party (read: National Day) is done and dusted, but the next few weeks are lined with some fascinating highlights for the local gastronomic scene. Four-hand collaborations and exclusive wine dinners are now just squeezed into the last few weeks of August. Consider the upcoming Peranakan-Kabayan dinner at Candlenut or an exciting menu with Open Farm Community with private home kitchen Dearborn Supper Club.
Then, there’s the next gastronomic event to look out for in September: the Michelin Guide. As usual, the new 2019 guide will be revealed with a glitzy gala dinner by renowned chefs. But in the event that you miss out on snapping up seats, we’ve got you covered with these equally delicious events as well.
