Conceptualised by Chef Lucas Glanville, the hotel’s director of culinary operations, Grand Marketplace offers foodies and conscious buyers restaurant-quality produce direct from the farms and at unbeatable trade prices.

As the hotel purchases its ingredients in bulk directly from farmers and producers, Grand Hyatt Singapore is in a privileged position to pay it forward and extend these savings to its consumers.

Grand Hyatt Singapore’s culinary team has assembled three limited bundles that bring every aspiring home chef on a culinary adventure from within the comfort of their homes to mark the launch of the Grand Marketplace:

EXHIBITION

Getting a big scoop

Museum of Ice Cream

Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) is bringing its sold-out interactive museum experience to Singapore, marking the first time the US-based attraction has set foot abroad.

The experiential museum will be located in Dempsey, and will open its doors to visitors from August. MOIC started in 2016 with its New York pop-up, selling out quickly with a growing wait-list of 200,000 guests. The Smithsonian ranked MOIC among its top 10 most Instagrammed museums in the world.

Here, the Museum of Ice Cream Singapore will be housed within a 60,000 sq ft property. MOIC will feature 14 never-before-seen installations, and guests can look forward to a fully functional, Singapore-inspired “Dragon Playground”, a pink-and-yellow jungle with 10,000 bananas and the largest MOIC sprinkle pool ever created.

Guests will also be able to enjoy five unique ice-cream treats as they are guided through the 90-minute experience.

Advanced reservations to the ice cream journey launched in limited quantities from April 12 can be made at www.museumoficecream.sg. First-access (Phase One) ticket reservations for Museum of Ice Cream Singapore start from $38.
