Taste MIGF takes place from 26th to 28th of September 2014 at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre. From 11am to 10pm on Saturday, 27th and Sunday, 28th September, food lovers can partake in a Super Gourmet Safari in one spectacular and specially created location – The Theatre of Cuisines. Here they can buy Gourmet Dollars to exchange for bite sized samples from the Festival restaurants.

From 11am to 4 pm on Friday 26th September and from 11am to 10 pm on the weekend of 27th and 28th September, visitors can also shop at the Epicure International Gourmet Village, attend Master Chefs’ cooking classes and enjoy wine appreciation talks and other culinary happenings.
A new inclusion this year is the LuxuryPlus Showcase which displays high end properties and investment opportunities among others and provide those present with the opportunity to hear from the industry’s best. Opening hours are as per the Epicure International Gourmet Village.

Enjoy a Super Gourmet Safari!
In the specially created “Theatre of Cuisines”, where the Festival restaurants are showcased, visitors can buy “Gourmet Dollars” and enjoy a “Super Gourmet Safari” sampling creations from Malaysia's leading chefs as they serve up tasting portions from their Festival Menus. These special portions are big enough to exhibit the creativity of the Festival chefs but small enough to allow tasting as many dishes from as many restaurants as possible. Live music and cooking demonstrations take place, providing a fiesta-like atmosphere for all visitors.

The Theatre of Cuisines will open to the public for a fabulous gourmet weekend from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.

Get your Gourmet Dollars First!
To go on your Super Gourmet Safari, you will need Gourmet Dollars that have been created with the benefit of diners in mind. They help to minimise queues and delays for people waiting for their change. Gourmet Dollars will be available for purchase on the day of the event itself; however, you can avoid valuable time on that day and enjoy a 5% discount if you pre-purchase Gourmet Dollars at www.tastemigf.com

Shop At The Epicure International Gourmet Village!
TasteMIGF will also feature an “Epicure International Gourmet Village”, situated right next to the Theatre of Cuisines. Here, more than 80 purveyors of the finest gourmet food, wines, cigars, and much more, offer their wares in a festive, bazaar-like atmosphere.
The Epicure International Gourmet Village will open to the public from 11.00am to 4.00pm on Friday 26th September and again from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.
