Hong Kong’s can-do spirit and love of life have not been dampened in any way by the pandemic, and this shows in the production of the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival that will run until December 15, 2020. Normally an in-person event, as were most events in the past around the world, the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), has creatively planned to go ahead with an “online + offline” format for the first time. This will give audiences at home and abroad a new gastronomic experience not bound by time and geographical constraints.
The Embassy of Malaysia in Washington DC, with the cooperation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industries of Malaysia, has just officiated the Malaysia Food Fest 2020 in the United States. The month-long event includes the launch of the first-ever YouTube cooking channel devoted to Malaysia’s famous fusion cuisine. The Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency, Ambassador Azmil Zabidi, opened the event at the Satay Club restaurant in Washington DC, where the first episode of the series was filmed.
