Eat Well, Do Good: Farm-To-Table Eating To Do Good

By  |  0 Comments

Eat well and do good; a great motto to live by as senior chefs from 5 of Pan Pacific Hotel Group’s Singapore hotels come together to create farm-to-table dishes to do good for the lesser well-off.

This initiative is two-fold, as the dishes are created with mostly sustainable produce from Singapore. Working with urban farm Comcrop Singapore, dishes created by the chefs will be available exclusively on the dinner buffet from the 15th of July to the 15th of August. Part of the proceeds will go towards The Food Bank Singapore’s drive for the purchase of food parcels for low-income households in support of World Food Day, a global day of action against hunger.

With an assortment of fresh, locally-sourced produced like mushrooms, vegetables, herbs, eggs and fish from Comcrop as well as from the farms in Lim Chu Kang, the chefs have come together to create dishes that showcase sustainable eating.

As part of the preview, we were treated to tasty morsels such as this Tea-Smoked Soft Yolk Egg, a seemingly simple Shanghainese dish elevated by the addition of ikura and micro herbs alongside a Spiced Dust Mushroom Fritters, with a variety of mushrooms grown locally and dusted with a blend of chilli, cumin, garlic and onions.

We also given a preview of the mains that were up on offer with all three kinds of fish farmed from local waters; the trio of Baked Barramundi Fish Fillet, Steamed Sea Bream Fillet and Baked Tilapia Fillet in Carta Fata were all well thought of and delicious. I really liked the sea bream, steamed in a delicate broth to preserve its freshness with the organic fungus and spinach to give more texture to the dish.

We were also treated to a sweet ending with a Passionfruit Meringue Tart that was almost too pretty to eat but tasted absolutely fabulous.
