FOOD Dining Experience gets better with LAVISH

Lavish Treat
Dining on food served by caterers can be as good as what you have been experiencing at hotel restaurants. Today, catering is redefined by LAVISH with outstanding dining experiences served by great chefs and attentive service staff. To be exact, LAVISH seeks to excite your five senses with bespoke dishes that not just look good, but tastes great as well with a re-branding and 18th anniversary gala extravaganza held in January 2016. At the event, 600 guests were transported back in time and brought back to the future,

LAVISH divided the event hall into two sections. Walking into a hall with stalls set up in the concept from 1990s, guests are invited to savour local street food such as Peranakan Laksa, Malay Satay and Indian Tandoori Chicken, each served from distinctly labelled carts.

Curtain Call: The unveiling of the new LAVISH 2.0Soon the time came for the unveiling of the company’s new logo, and the dark curtains that divide the expansive hall into two sections, unexpectedly dropped to unveil the impressive food stations that scream the future of catering.

At the Event Hall
The team from LAVISH shows that they can also serve up great food at events. Below are a couple of the display shots and chefs at the live stations.

Instead of having waiting staff carrying food around,
how about using conveyor belt?

The Watering Hole 
Not to be missed is cocktails. Mixes From Mars was part of this pompous event. Bartenders come up with delicious cocktails, close to if not better than the choices guests gave them in the form of ingredients put together in a glass. Tip, do not pick more than 3 ingredients at one go.

Work of Experts
Helming the kitchen is award winning Executive Chef Teo Yeow Siang, who led the Singapore culinary team to bag multiple international culinary awards such as the Culinary World Cup 2014 in Luxembourg. For this dining experience, the member of the internationally acclaimed Singapore National Culinary Team member with 13 years of culinary experience created unique numbers that invites gastronomists to expected the unexpected.

The Singapore Sling
Instead of serving this signature drink in a tall glass, he uses a special encrusting technique known as spherification to give the cocktail a sensual twist with the Singapore Sling Sphere, with mint granite.

Aesthetics & Dining Experience
Taking the catering a notch up and giving new definition to event hosting is Director of Strategic Business Jerry Sim who has worked with international celebrity chefs. Being a 1986 SHATEC graduate and with 18 years of experience in the banquet and outdoor catering industry under his belt, Jerry has a passion for visual presentation. The result of his talent include edible mahjong tiles and chess pieces.

Exclusive LAVISH TEA Bags
On this special occasion, LAVISH also launched their concoction of fragrant tea. The packaging is uniquely stylish, while the Earl Grey Tea in particular is so creamy, you won't find any that is better than this.
