THE LIVING LEGACY Wine & Dine’s credible editorial has been the cornerstone of making the publication the definitive magazine for gourmands for the past 32 years. We don’t just cover the local dining scene; we also bring you the latest gourmet news from around the world, from the latest Michelin-starred restaurants to food festivals. Our writers interview top culinary personalities to share with you their valuable insights. Wine has always been one of our editorial strengths. We check out excellent vintages, explore lesser known wine regions, and pick boutique wines that are worth a place in your cellar. We also talk to winemakers, whisky distillers and other drink purveyors to find out more about the latest trends that are shaping the future of the wine and spirits industry. We offer great tips on entertaining at home, too. Our stylishly photographed recipes, which come with clear instructions from the contributing chefs, inspire our savvy readers to whip up delectable treats in their own kitchens. Our travel features don’t just fill you in on the latest resorts and hotels to check into, they explore dining trends happening in another part of the world, and the multifaceted role of food in other cultures. The fascinating stories add to our holistic editorial coverage on the gourmet lifestyle and the art of good living.
The concept of luxury is ever-changing. Not just in the material sense, the luxuries of time, space, work and passions continue to evolve, and so too in the fine dining scene. While it used to mean starched tablecloths and elaborate decor with chefs hidden from diners, today though, it’s vastly different. In this issue, find out which revolutionary establishments are setting the stage for a new era in fine dining; delve into vanilla, a most fastidious spice; read about top chefs’ prized ingredients; and learn how elevated versions of pantry staples like salt and butter are becoming the new luxury ingredients. What’s more, we view luxury through the prisms of chefs and industry insiders such as chef Tetsuya Wakuda of Waku Ghin, Arrif Ziaudeen of Chope, Yenn Wong of Jia Holdings, and Gerald Lu of Praelum Wine Bistro, and serve up gorgeous destinations that will leave you having the most delicious time of your life. In our regular columns, check out new restaurant openings and fresh menus at Hashida Sushi, JAAN, Esora and more; read our QnA with Edward Voon, executive chef of Le Pan Hong Kong; go behind the scenes of heritage brand Thye Hong Hokkien Mee; visit homegrown craft chocolate maker Lemuel Chocolate; check out how Swiss International Air Lines is taking inflight meals to new heights; venture down New South Wales’ oyster coast; and for a taste of Piedmont’s magic, have a closer look at Pio Cesare’s expressive Barolos.
