WORLD’S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS 2019
WELCOME TO COUNTRY DINNER – 22 JUNE 2019
50 Best entrusted us with the first event on their calendar – Welcome to Country Dinner, a private event for 70 esteemed members of the 50 Best Academy. The goal was to create an evening where the guests could experience Singapore’s sights and cuisine.
We began the evening with a sunset boat ride along Singapore river to soak in the marina bay skyline. Guests were then transported to a surprise dinner location – an old black and white bungalow at 8 Adam Park.
We transformed the house into a cosy dining venue for a specially curated Peranakan dinner. Vijay Mudaliar from award winning bar Native created a special cocktail menu featuring local ingredients. We also worked with local luminaries Chefs Violet Oon, Marcus Lee, Cheryl Koh to present the exclusive 6-hands dinner.
At the end of the evening, guests were presented with an artisanal peranakan Tiffin carrier, each beautifully hand painted by local artist June Hussein and her team.

Speakers included Joan Roca of El Celler de Can Roca, Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park, Garima Arora of Gaa and Julien Royer of Odette. The chefs discussed the changes introduced to the voting in 2019, such as the institution of the Best of the Best category, as well as the rising importance of Asia as a gastronomic destination.
FOOD MEETS FUTURE – 24 JUNE 2019
Guests were then invited to the Supreme Court Terrace for – Food Meets Future, a four-part interactive event celebrating inclusivity, inspiration, responsibility and talent to mark San Pellegrino’s 120th Diamond Anniversary.
The audience was inspired by the star-studded panel of chefs such as Massimo Butura, Anne-Spohie Pic and Jose Andres who shared their personal journey, experience and vision passionately.
We also worked with local dessert maven Chef Janice Koh to present an interactive, edible art installation. Guests savoured 3D diamond shaped desserts on a colourful chocolate painted canvas that reflected the taste and flavours of Singapore.
