Taste Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (TasteMIGF) Pre-launch Event @ Sunway Pyramid

8:00:00 AM

Ever watch Masterchef and wonder what it'll be like tasting the food they've made? Ever wonder if you could try several fine dining restaurants a day? Ever wish that you don't have to pay so much for it? Well, you're in luck! TasteMIGF does exactly that!

For those who have not seen or heard or TasteMIGF, here is the link to last year's event with restaurant listings and food http://www.findingfats.com/2013/09/taste-malaysian-international-gourmet_12.html

"Loup de Mer" (French Seabass) on Baby Roots, Poached Slipper Lobster with Pimentos Beurre Blanc Sauce

One of the dishes showcased at the Pre-launch Event and it looks absolutely divine.

In summary, TasteMIGF is a yearly event where chefs from different restaurants and hotels gathered and showcase their skills in the culinary world. Such as the picture shown above, it is done by Chef Audrey Chin (She has my surname! ahhaha) from Graze Restaurant located in Hilton KL.

Happening on the 26th to 28th of September, TasteMIGF will be held at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre.

Friday, 26th September: 11.00am to 4.00pm
Saturday, 27th September: 11.00am to 10.00pm
Sunday, 28th September: 11.00am to 10.00pm

Cod Fish with Squid Ink Risotto and Capsicum Sauce - Chef Thierry Le Baut 
(Maison Francaise restaurant)

Another beautiful looking dish by Chef Thierry Le Baut with one of my favourite fish, Cod.

For those who are interested in joining the TasteMIGF event happening from the 26th September (Friday) till the 28th September (Sunday), all that is required are Gourmet Dollars. Gourmet Dollars are a temporary currency used during the TasteMIGF event. It comes in a form of RM5 per piece, and a total of 10 a booklet. So its pretty much RM50 per booklet.

Not to worry as everything during TasteMIGF will only cost you RM5 per serving with some going up to RM10. So even with RM50, you can try an average of 8-10 different dishes from various fine dining restaurants and/or hotels!

Marinated Egg Yolk with Truffle Polenta and Parmigiana Foam - Chef Yomoda Masahiko
(Ten Japanese Fine Dining)

I've had some of their dishes during last year's TasteMIGF and it was pretty amazing. Especially the Ebi Katsu and Eclairs with Golden Paper. Will definitely go back this year to try out what they've accomplish in a year.

Salted Toffee Cream Brulee, Semifreddo Goat Cheese and Caramelized Jackfruits - Chef Siti Arini 
(Grilled 582)

Despite the plating being a little dispersed, I appreciate the vibrant colours and contrast from the black plate. Furthermore, the ingredients used really attracted me.

Besides the TasteMIGF event, there are also other functions happening such as the Epicure International Gourmet Village, links to last year's EIGV http://www.findingfats.com/2013/09/taste-malaysian-international-gourmet.html. Here, more than 80 purveyors of the finest gourmet food, wines, cigars, and much more offers their wares in a festive, bazaar-like atmosphere.

Epicure Lifestyle Workshops, LuxuryPlus Showcase & Workshops are also available. For a full schedule of the workshops, do visit www.tastemigf.com

A rather blur picture but I must share it nevertheless. Here are the compilation of all the chefs participating this year and the theme, Red Hot Chefs (last year's being Cool Chef). 

Again, for those who wishes to join TasteMIGF 2014, to try food from different restaurants and hotels, do log on to TasteMIGF and purchase your Gourmet Dollars at 5% off. Gourmet Dollars are also sold on the day of the event for those who prefer to purchase on the spot but there will not be any discount. =D
