“Kuala Lumpur already has a vibrant and diverse food and cultural scene, and this festival epitomises what the city has to offer to visitors,” said Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Bin Hj. Talib, Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, as quoted by Select Traveller magazine.

“Featuring chefs from Malaysia and overseas, the festival is very much in line with our tourism master plan to develop Kuala Lumpur into a top gastronomic destination in the region,” he added.

KL Big Kitchen Festival will have celebrity gastronomic personalities and chefs demonstrating their skilful culinary techniques in preparing the freshest and finest dishes which would include traditional, international as well as fusion cuisines in the festival’s live cooking workshops.


Apart from that, there will also be cultural dance and musical performances by some familiar faces from the local music scene such as Aweera, Dafi, Najwa Latif, Fredo, Sasi The Don, Winnie Kok, Zainal Abidin and others.

Visitors will get to taste, buy and learn how the variety of herbs and spices available in Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures, are used to create delicious dishes.
