Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet launched a charity cook-off starring Li Nanxing and Christopher Lee. The actors are used to sharing television airtime, but for the first time, they shared kitchen space at the Taste Singapore Star Charity Cook-Off that highlighted what the new gourmet supermarket factory outlet and dining destination had to offer – restaurant-quality produce at the most competitive prices in town.
For an evening, they pitted their culinary flair together and cooked four dishes: Nanxing whipped up his mum’s favourite beef and chicken rendang while Christopher cooked up his wife’s favourite braised pork and pan-fried prawns. They prepared and procured all the ingredients they needed from the new Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet in Holland Village.
After the cookout, a star-studded wait staff including Fann Wong, Constance Song, Julie Tan and Wei Le served guests of the evening with tasting portions of the dishes. Guests also enjoyed a free-flow buffet dinner of all the premium items that can be found at Taste Factory Butchery & Seafood Outlet and its affiliated brands. These included premium Imperial Russian caviar, prime cut steaks, fresh oysters, roasted lamb and Swiss crispy roasted pork belly by Otto’s Deli Fresh; airflown sushi, sashimi and Hokkaido scallops by Sens Sushi & Grill; and gourmet sausages, French baby pork ribs and beer from Surf & Turf; and more.
At the launch, renowned radio DJ DongFang Billy Wang also shared a taste of his home-made Billy’s Signature Lemonade that guests could purchase.
In the spirit of charity, 100% of proceeds from online ticket sales to the cookout went to charity:
- 50% went to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund that is channelled to support 10,000 students from low-income families.
- 50% to Business Times Budding Artists Fund that seeks to make the arts accessible for children and youths from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.
Li Nanxing’s Mum’s Favourites Beef and Chicken Rendang, and Christopher Lee’s Wife’s Favourite Braised pork are available for pre-order purchase exclusively at Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet.
