The World Gourmet Summit (WGS) is here and it’s time for the next generation of culinary talent to step up. Their 21st edition took place with the theme ‘Remastered’, which celebrates both the past winners as well as future generations who are ready to make their mark on this industry.

Despite the current pandemic, The World Gourmet Awards (WGA) has returned to discover and celebrate new outstanding talents from our industry. WGA is highly regarded as one of Singapore’s most esteemed accolades in the culinary world.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the signature event adopted a hybrid format. It was held between 17th to 19th May at 3 PM on Facebook live, and followed by an intimate trophy ceremony to celebrate the award recipients on the 5th of July 2021. This event will be broken up into two different sessions and will be held at One Farrer Hotel.

“Today, the F&B Industry is still doing its best to survive despite much of Singapore being locked down due to Covid-19. As a result, people are scared about what will happen in their future but there’s nothing stopping these 36 award recipients this year from proving that hard work does indeed pay off. “ said Peter Knipp, Founder, World Gourmet Summit.

Some of these awards received include the Lifetime Achievements, the USA Rice Federation Chef Mentor / Apprentice of the Year as well as the addition of new members to their coveted Hall of Fame.

Some of these notable achievements include:

  • Chef Aziza Ali (Indoguna Singapore Lifetime Achievement Award)

Chef Aziza Ali is known for her elegant Singaporean dishes and the rich tastes of Malay cuisine. She has pioneered bringing Malay Cuisine into the fine dining industry.

  • Helene Raudaschl (Allspice Lifetime Achievement Award)

For many, a passion remains just that – a passion. Not so for Ms Helene Raudaschl, who has successfully turned her passion for food into a thriving business in both the food service and retail sector.

  • Chef Benton Toh (USA Rice Federation Chef Mentor of the Year)

Passionate about his craft, Chef Benton is a mentor to many local chefs within Singapore’s finest culinary schools.

  • Spa Esprit Group (MEIKO GREEN Waste Solutions Green  Initiative Award)

One of the biggest steps towards making F&B industries aware is their founding of the F&B sustainability council last year. Being the first of its kind in Singapore, the council was recently formed to tackle environmental issues in the industry. This also makes them an important voice in sustainability practices.

  • Oliver Truesdale Jutras – Open Farm Community (Q Industries Green Initiative Award (Individual))

Open Farm Community’s food mileage is among the lowest in the city. They buy goods from local sources to keep money within Singapore’s economy, and their overall impact is much less than any other operation in any other brand they know of in Singapore.

WGS 2021 Events

The World Gourmet Summit also includes various promotions and events in collaboration with different partners such as their USA Cheese Guild and Pacific Northwest Seafood promotion. There will also be a Private Dining event, a Four-Hands collaboration with WGS’s partner restaurants and popular local private dining chefs such as Pasir Panjang boys, Annette Tan, Sarah Benjamin, Bryan Koh and Sandra Sim.
