Flaming fun festival at Guinness Flavour By Fire
The Guinness Flavour By Fire Festival at Sentul Depot revealed tantalising aromas, mouth-watering cuisine, and vibrant sights and sounds. The blazing revelry was combined the tantalising fusion of Guinness-infused flame-cooked creations, sending taste buds on a journey beyond the ordinary.
With a line-up of 11 dynamic culinary partners, over 20 open flame grills and an impressive 27 taps flowing smooth and creamy Guinness Draught, it was quite the culinary experience. The air was thick with the smoky scent of fire-grilled sizzling meats and savoury spices. Guinness’s rich, distinctive flavour, derived from fire-roasting its barleys at precisely 232 degrees Celsius, was the perfect pairing partner to the flamed food. Authentically Guinness, the festival provided the perfect setting for cheerful camaraderie amid culinary temptations.
