It looks like I am making small forays into the world of gourmet dining this year, first with the Savour festival (which I have yet to blog about!) and now with the World Gourmet Summit 2012 edition.
I was lucky enough to get to tag along with Beetrice for the Opening Reception back in April, held at Universal Studios in Resorts World Sentosa.
To put it in layman’s terms, the World Gourmet Summit is like your local food tasting fair, except maybe the people are more dressed up, you’re eating gourmet food and you’ll find copious amounts of champagne and wine available on tap.
(I just stuck to San Pellegrino. Heheh.)
There are more pictures of food after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »

I love how many specialty ice cream and yogurt and dessert shops there are in Singapore. Marble Slab Creamery is one on my list of favorites after tasting their lovely version of Irish Cream ice cream.
Marble Slab describes the Irish Cream flavor as :
“Hints of coffee flavouring make this a sophisticated indulgence. A rich, creamy flavour that provides ultimate satisfaction.”
Did it meet the mark? Yes on all counts. The ice cream is smooth and creamy and the flavor is rich without being overpowering. Kind of like the perfect marriage of a what outwardly appears to be just a plain, ordinary, unassuming scoop of ice cream but with the blended flavor of a masterpiece. (Yes, I know I’m waxing lyrical. Heh.)
I had a Kiddie Cup (the smallest size, a single scoop) which costs SGD 4.50. Just the right size for one to indulge in a little bit of perfection without having to share and just right to leave you wanting ‘just a bit more’.
I also love their kitschy tagline of ‘Find happiness within’. It’s the perfect phrase to go along with a scoop of loverly ice cream on a lazy weekend.
