The theme this year, Magical Chefs, aptly describes the wonders and delights that are in store for local diners as well as global gourmet cuisine enthusiasts in the capital city this October. MIGF celebrating its 10th year has indeed a myriad of wonderful surprises for all. From 1 – 31 October, 30 prestigious Festival Restaurants along with their Master Chefs will be showcasing their very best. From exquisite taste, creative presentation, fair pricing, innovative offers and stunning ambience, each of these restaurants are geared up to do magic!
Those familiar with MIGF anticipate the Gala Launch which year-on-year packs a grand ballroom with royalty, politicians, ambassadors, foreign dignitaries, highly respected business tycoons and entrepreneurs, influential captains of the industry from hoteliers and restaurant owners to lifestyle product experts, fabulous personalities on screen, on the catwalk, across the pages of high-end lifestyle glossy magazines, Malaysia’s most recognised celebrities and more. In 2009, the country’s most celebrated lady rock star Ella, entertainer Maple Asaro, diva extraordinaire Anita Sarawak and the graceful and multi-talented theatre performer Datin Seri Tiara Jacquelina were present in celebration of Malaysia’s Master Chefs and best cuisines amongst others.
MIGF is an exciting star-studded event in the country’s culinary calendar and this year, besides the complementary Style Rocks! event which takes place mid October, Epicure Malaysia 2010 from 17 – 19 September is back once again, leading into MIGF main festivities. First introduced in 2003, this is Malaysia’s leading food, wine and lifestyle fair serving up an array of lifestyle products and services. This time around, even bigger, the event offers everything to inspire even the most sedate! With 84 original and innovative workshops, Master Chef Cooking Classes, Wine & Cigar Appreciation workshops and the Investment & Financial Freedom Made Easy workshop amongst others, Epicure Malaysia 2010 is sure to benefit every visitor.
Additionally, a new event will be organised in place of the familiar Chefs Charity Auction, raising money for a deserving Malaysian charity. The Festival’s Master Chefs have a longstanding tradition of giving something back to society and the less fortunate. More on this special event as MIGF draws closer!
Traditionally, MIGF comes to a close with a grand finale dinner served in opulence – a formal event with all that glitters yet with a fun and exciting side to it complemented by riveting performances by talented musical artists and much more. This time around, the only difference is that all the fun and exciting part of it is amplified with the venue being the Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach – a splashing good time awaits all 1,300 invited guests! MIGF 2010 will close with a magical Grand Finale Party at the most happening “beach” in town. This evening celebrates the Festival Restaurants and every one of the Master Chefs – all in appreciation of their commitment and their relentless efforts working hand-in-hand through MIGF to push boundaries in garnering world recognition for Malaysia’s fabulous and thriving fine dining industry.
MIGF 2010 promises pure magic!
