TL;DR – Good food, will travel.

Ever wanted to dine at ‘Demon Chef’’ Alvin Leung’s Michelin 3-star restaurant Bo Innovation?

Or perhaps you have been wanting to try the decadent Oyster Caviour by French Chef Nicolas Isnard?

This summer, it’s time to indulge and experience different cuisines from six Michelin-starred and celebrity chefs from around the world as they congregate at the specially-curated MMI Savour Gourmet Festival 2018 in Shenzhen.

The food festival offers patrons the opportunity to experience international cuisine from France, Hong Kong, Belgium, Singapore, Switzerland and Australia at affordable prices and attendees can also get up close and personal with Michelin-starred and celebrity chefs from leading 5-star hotels in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau. The chefs include Alvin Leung, Emmanuel Stroobant and Florian Favario. Renowned Australian pastry chefs Samuel Yeo, Andres Fatso and Min Chai will also be participating in the festival with their signature desserts.
