The GREAT Food Festival 2017 Highlights

It was four days of epicurean goodness, as gourmands turned up in droves for their choice of dishes from Michelin-starred and award-winning restaurants at the The GREAT Food Festival.

Held from 21 to 24 September 2017, The GREAT Food Festival was jointly organised by Resorts World Sentosa and Savour Events, and boasted over 40 international and local culinary celebrities, 100 signature and heritage-inspired dishes, as well as 300 desserts and pastries. Its claim to fame – Singapore’s most wide-ranging food festival to date.

Here are some shots we captured on location.
