A group of Singapore’s best-known and respected food bloggers, with the support of SingTel, have formally challenged Michelin-starred Chef Gordon Ramsay to take on Singapore’s most beloved hawkers in a culinary contest.
Should Chef Ramsay accept the challenge, he will pit his skills against three popular hawkers selected through a public poll hosted on the HungryGoWhere website.
In response to a recent debate about whether Singapore hawkers deserve greater international recognition and concerns of a decline in local hawker culture – the contest will help determine if Singapore’s hawker fare can match up to the standards of the prestigious Michelin guide, the benchmark for culinary excellence around the world.
The food bloggers who have joined hands to issue the challenge include: Dr Leslie Tay (iEatiShootiPost), Daniel Ang (Daniel’s Food Diary), Catherine Ling (Camemberu), Philip Lim (Keropokman), Karen Wee (SuperFineFeline), Melissa Koh (Melicacy) and Rayner Ng (HisFoodBlog).
Additional details will be announced over the following weeks, so watch this space!
