The First Malaysian Week of Taste 2012

Visual from Week of Taste website

If you're a foodie like me, there seems to be quite a number of food related events around Klang Valley this October and November. Do they excite you as much as they did to me?

One of them that pique my interest is this Malaysian chapter of the Week of Taste which is supported by Embassy of France, Alliance Francaise de Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian French Chamber of Commerce (MFCCI) and so forth. Week of Taste started in 1990 in France where school going children are being educated on food. It is also for adult to discover the benefits of cooking and the pleasures of eating and drinking. It has since spread to over 20 countries and the latest landing - Malaysia!

From the website, the Week of Taste is about:
Enhancing the diversity of tastes and food cultures
Promoting exchanges between food related professionals
Educating the younger generations to the pleasure of the taste
Making consumers aware of the quality and seasonality of products
Showcasing the craft skills
Promoting health through a varied and balanced diet
Promoting the discovery of high quality products
Preserving tradition and encouraging culinary innovation

It is designed for children, teenagers, families, teachers and all those who love to eat, who want to discover quality products and take time to savor and enjoy, and to all those who care about their environment as well as their health.

For a gastronomical affair at restaurants, do check out the participating restaurants or should you prefer to attend cooking related workshops, click on the schedule here. There will be a gourmet bazaar over the weekend (19th - 21st) at Publika in Solaris Dutamas with some 20 exhibitors of over 30 brands as well as artisans taking part. So if you wish to engage with the producers and sellers around, this is it!
The Week of Taste starts on 15th October 2012 and ends on 21st.
