Preview: Epicurean Market 2019 at Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay Sands’ hallmark food and wine extravaganza, Epicurean Market, is making a highly anticipated comeback from 13 to 15 December, setting the stage for another gastronomical celebration this holiday season. In its sixth edition, Epicurean Market will introduce an unprecedented format which sees the best of both its exclusive Signature Series and ever-popular food and wine show. The three-day event will kick off with a series of exciting in-restaurant specials on 13 December, before opening doors to its weekend fiesta at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre (Halls A, B & C) on 14 and 15 December. Guests can look forward to signature bites and tipples from over 50 booths, including Marina Bay Sands’ newest and upcoming restaurants; participate in more than 12 culinary masterclasses led by leading celebrity chefs; handpick gourmet produce and holiday treats from the festive market, and more.
“I have heard many wonderful things about Epicurean Market, and am excited to finally be part of this massive food celebration. I look forward to welcoming everyone to my restaurants, and interacting with all the food lovers at this year’s Epicurean Market,” said chef Wolfgang Puck of Spago and one-Michelin starred CUT at Marina Bay Sands.
Says Chef Tetsuya Wakuda: “Every year’s Epicurean Market is a grand celebration of food and wine. My favourite part of the event is to discover new cultures and experiences as I meet old and new friends, fellow chefs and customers who share a common passion for food.”
“I am so excited to be heading back to Singapore for Epicurean Market 2019. It’s a fantastic event that I really enjoy being part of! I’m looking forward to not only leading a masterclass, but also welcoming guests to the launch dinner at Adrift, and sharing plenty of delicious bites over the weekend. Alongside our new Executive Chef at Adrift, Peter Smit, we will be honing in on our Californian Izakaya roots with a selection of dishes that will not only showcase some beautiful produce, but also pack a punch in flavours,” said celebrity chef David Myers.
Well-loved local celebrity chef Justin Quek added: “I am thrilled to be back at the remarkable Epicurean Market, where people gather over good food and great conversations. This year, I have prepared some new creations boasting unique flavours of Asia, and I can’t wait to share them with everyone at the event.”

Plus, enjoy an after-hours bash at Singapore’s biggest nightclub MARQUEE after.
