KL Big Kitchen 2015 Launch Event

Last Friday, I was invited for the KL Big Kitchen Media Preview launch by Malaysia Airlines. The inaugural KL Big Kitchen Festival 2015 was held at iconic Dataran Merdeka. With partnership with Kuala Lumpur City Hall and Ministry of Tourism & Culture, the 3 day food festival showcases the diversity of cuisine available in Kuala Lumpur.

Before the media launch, I visited the Malaysia Airlines section. They were promoting their famous inflight satay.

For those who flew with Malaysia Airlines, you will not forget how lovely their satays are especially if you are traveling back from abroad.

During the KL Big Kitchen 2015, Malaysia Airlines held the Instagram contest called “Satays in the Skies” and a lucky winner will receive a pair of Malaysia Airlines Business Class tickets from Kuala Lumpur to London. Now, that is seriously a mouth-watering prize and you just need to purchase the satays, take a picture with them and hash tag #satayintheskies and tagged @MalaysiaAirlines on Instagram.

I was hanging out at Malaysia Airlines tent with my friends and I was introduced to a group of French media. The French medias invited by Malaysia Airlines and Tourism Malaysia and they were very excited to travel around Malaysia as this is their first trip to Asia.

When it comes to big events like this in Malaysia, Chef Wan is always there. He is the most popular chef in Malaysia as well as Malaysia’s Food Ambassador.

It was an intimate media launch as only selected medias and VIPs are allowed to enter the event hall. However, the weather wasn’t that forgiving, it was raining cats and dogs.

Thanks to Malaysia Airlines, I was one of the VIP guests and sat with the French. They were surprised on how scary when the rain pours in Kuala Lumpur. It is nothing compare to their weather in Paris.

The KL Big Kitchen 2015 is a good initiative to promote KL food and especially getting locals and tourists to participate in during the weekend. There were many activities as celebrity gastronomic personalities and chefs interact and demonstrate their skills in preparing the finest dishes, live cooking workshops and demonstrations of contemporary and traditional culinary techniques.
