Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF)

The MIGF, which starts today and ends on 29 Nov. The festival is aimed at promoting the country's best local chefs and their versatility. Among the participating restaurants are
Iketeru in Hilton Kuala Lumpur,
Lafite in Shangri-La Hotel, Dynasty in Renaissance Kuala Lumpur, Hanabi Japanese Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur,
Tamarind Springs in Kuala Lumpur,
Eest and Prego at the Westin Kuala Lumpur (both restaurants are indeed marvellous) and
The Olive in Genting Hotel (my favourite restaurant too). For full restaurant listing, click here.

Three Michelin Stars – German Chef Volker Drkosch, French Chef Joel Antunes and Spanish Ramon Freixa Reira – will be serving up a storm at The Olive in Genting. Just like the Academy Awards which are given to stars in the movie industry, those who receive Michelin Stars from the Michelin Guide signifies that their restaurants embody excellence in all aspects of their dining experience, from the quality of the cuisine to the ambience, service and attention to detail. Michelin Stars are considered the most influential and consequently most prized accolade in the culinary world. Always my dream too, to be become a Food Inspector under the Michelin Guide's guidance. In conjunction with the festival, a 3-day Epicure Malaysia Fair will be held from 17 to 19 Nov at the Sime Darby Convention Centre. Next year, the festival would be an even bigger affair with more restaurants coming on board in anticipation of Visit Malaysia Year 2007.
