Time is money, and efficiency is the key to success. So what can small and medium enterprises (SMEs) do? Find ways to streamline your operations.…
One of the standout highlights of GastroBeats 2022 is Culinary Masters. Guests to the Culinary Masters area will be brought on an out-of-the-world gastronomical journey by acclaimed celebrity chef Sarah Todd, of Masterchef Australia fame, in collaboration with the show’s judge George Calombaris, along with Masterchef Singapore S1 runner-up Genevieve Lee, and season 2 winner Derek Cheong.
Do note that GastroBeats is an entirely cashless event, meaning you don’t have to fuss about getting the correct change when you’re paying. All you need is a card, or smartphone with mobile payments activated, and you’re good to go.
At the media preview, we had a taste of some of the dishes you’ll be able to sink your teeth into:
The Hariyali “Chickened Out” Tikka Bao is an interesting take on the Chinese dish Kong Bak Pau. Traditionally, thick chunks of juicy braised pork are sandwiched between thin white slabs of bread. But Hariyali translates to “greenery” in Hindi, which explains the refreshing green you see in between the steamed lotus leaf bun.
Bite into the bun and you are in for a surprise. The meat chunks taste like meat but it’s actually made with vegan ‘chicken’ chunks marinated in coriander masala and mint. The dish comes with 3 pieces and goes for $24.
There is also the New Delhi Fish and Chips ($26), spiced espuma-battered Kuhlbarra barramundi drizzled with curry aioli. Each crispy bite slices away cleanly, paired with locally-grown kale chips as a savoury side.
Both dishes are a fun twist on the original, and perfect for those who like the taste of spice, without the massive kick.
Real foodies know that meals are only complete when topped off with dessert. We tried the Karamel Sutra Core ice cream with passion fruit espuma and peanut cookies. The tangy passion fruit flavours of the sorbet compliments the sweetness of the ice cream, further enhancing flavours as you alternate between sweet and sour taste profiles.
Each dish is sold a la carte, with sets available at $30 if you want to pair a main with a dessert. And if you decide to try all seven dishes, be prepared to spend around $120.
You are welcome to pair your food with bespoke cocktails created by Singapore’s top mixologist, Peter Chua. Each week, the chefs will also be showcasing a highlight dish. Find out more at the official GastroBeats website.
