With hundreds of creations to savour, the festival is split into three themed zones. Star Chef Arena, Rollin’ Sweet Times, and Heritage Lane.

This is where you get to meet (and be starstruck by) top chefs from all over the world. You can catch the chefs in action, and if they are free, maybe even grab a photo with them.

• Debit and Credit cards are accepted. (Visa and Mastercard preferred).

The Great Food Festival RWS - Celebrity Chef Area outdoor seating

The tents are quite small and mainly houses the open kitchens. The good thing is the resort has plenty of tables running all over the resort, and the staff were quite responsive to roll out extra seat and tables outdoors to cater for the crowds.

Heritage Lane

The Heritage Lane comprises 12 stalls cooking up over 50 dishes, as the name suggests, heritage-inspired dishes. Prices start from $6, and the good thing is this entire stretch is open to the public.
