The Kita Food Festival is an annual event offering a range of exceptional experiences with some of the finest chefs, winemakers and food thinkers from around the globe.
Beyond offering a taste of particularly good food and drink, Kita aims to spotlight Malaysia’s emerging place in the regional restaurant scene, while offering inspiration and skills for the younger generation of food producers – and a platform for discussing food consumption and the restaurant industry.
Kita means “us” or “we” in Malay. This is in recognition that the Kita Food Festival is an inclusive and all-embracing event regardless of race, colour, creed or socio-economic status. It appreciates that in the act of eating, the production of food and caring for a sustainable future, the festival’s main themes - we are one.
Kita is a community. Join us from September to November in Langkawi, Penang and Kuala Lumpur.
The 2021 Kita Food Festival brought together over 30 chefs and industry experts for a series of 18 masterclasses and dining experiences, both fine and casual, in Penang and Kuala Lumpur.
Here are some of the highlights.
