A short news item for all Singaporean readers (and well, any others who are planning a vacation here at the end of the month). The Singapore Writers Festival is (I think for the first time) incorporating a food writers component in its programme. The Festival runs from 26 August – 4 September. Some of the featured foodies are NY Times writer Johnny Apple, British food writer Kevin Gould, Aussie celeb chef Kylie Kwong, and Malaysian superstar Chef Wan. They’ll be speaking, cooking and signing books. For specific details, you can click here. I’ve also just discovered that one of Kylie’s dinners, in which she’ll be cooking at Poppi, is already sold out. So, if you want to attend anything else that requires registration or tickets, I suggest you check out the Singapore Writers Festival site now and sign up ASAP.
