JCF: A Fiesta for Foodies

Bringing all food lovers together in one place, Jakarta Food Feastival is looking to make this year’s event the most memorable one.

There’s a delightful news for all food enthusiast in Jakarta, as one of the biggest food festivals in the city, Jakarta Culinary Feastival, is returning soon from 1-4 November 2018. Collaborating with GO-FOOD, the event is held by Ismaya Live and will be located in Senayan City.

With “taste, sip, learn, and fun” as the main pillars, JCF wants to be the heaven for all foodies as they can explore the culinary world deeper through a variety of masterclasses and talk shows. The festival itself will be divided into two main areas: Fork Tent, that is located across the Senayan City South Lobby, and Spoon Tent, located across Panin Tower.

To spice things up, there will be The Chef Hunt competition this year to find the amateur chefs with no more than two years of experience in the kitchen. Two of the participants will be crowned as the winners and will receive partial scholarships from the prominent culinary school Le Cordon Bleu.

GO-FOOD is also preparing a surprise in the form of FoodieLab. In the picturesque lab, the guests will be able to enjoy numerous interactive installations that will display information and data about the most wanted food in GO-FOOD. Of course, they will also have the chance to taste the food in GO-FOOD Festival, as a part of Spoon Tent area.

Just like last year, there will be 20 specially selected partnered merchants to visit, starting from Nasi Goreng Kambing Kebon Sirih, Eatlah, to Pisang Goreng Madu Bu Nanik.
