Feast on Local Food and More at Cé La Vi Singapore's Sky High Hawker Series
We first got a taste of Cé La Vi’s Sky High Hawker series back in August, a culinary fiesta held over the National Day weekend to celebrate Singapore’s vibrant F&B landscape and encourage diners to support the F&B industry especially during these trying times.
It featured local champions such as Han Liguang (Labyrinth), Malcolm Lee (Candlenut) and Jason Tan (formerly of Corner House), who worked with Cé La Vi’s executive chef Joey Sergentakis to prepare a lavish spread of their signatures as well as exclusive dishes at pocket-friendly prices.
This weekend (September 5 to 6), the much-awaited second edition is back; this time around, the spotlight’s on female chefs who’ve made their mark in the culinary world.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
Those with a sweet tooth will be glad to know that pastry queen Janice Wong, Asia’s Best Pastry Chef in 2013 and 2014, is part of the exciting line-up. That means you’ll be treated to her delectable desserts that taste as good as they look.
Hankering for more familiar flavours? Morsel’s chef-owner Petrina Loh, who earned the prestigious World Gourmet Summit’s Chef’s Choice (Western) title in 2017, will delight palates with modern Asian creations such as the comforting steamed venus clams in dried fig chicken broth.
The Sky High Hawker event will not be complete without some of the beloved hawker dishes we grew up eating. One of these is the famed putu piring from the famed Haig Road Putu Piring, whose fifth-generation owner Aisha Hashim will dish out steamed rice pancakes cakes with rendang spice and chicken rendang with lace crepes roti kirai at the event.
Jasmine Tan, owner of the Mui Siong Minced Meat Noodle, will also make an appearance at the event to satisfy guests’ cravings for the signature heritage minced meat noodle. Completing the event is Sergentakis’ Bao by Ce La Vi; the fusion dish of bao and burger will complement the amazing offerings of the guest female chefs. Book here.
