Another Successful Norwegian Seafood Dinner

Approximately 985 Norwegian and Singaporean business executives graced the annual Norwegian Seafood Dinner of 2012 held at one of the largest column-free ballrooms in Singapore. The event took place on Friday 16 March and was co hosted by the Norwegian Business Association and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore.

Among the participants were H.E. Mr. Lui Tuck Yew, Minister of Transport and Second Minister of Foreign Affairs in Singapore. All 985 guests enjoyed the seafood specially flown in from Norway and skillfully prepared by Singaporean and Norwegian master chefs.

According to Ms. Tone Kaasen Hoie, Coordinator at Norwegian Business Association, one chef in particular impressed the guests.

“Chef Daniel R. Madsen from Gastronomic Institute in Norway, served exquisite dishes, including salted cod flakes, jerusalem artichoke cream, crispy veal tongue, pickled beetroot and truffle. He also stunned the guests with a pine smoked salmon “nordic lights”,” says Ms. Tone Kaasen Hoie.

Ms. Tone Kaasen Hoie also added “Celebrity Chef Jimmy Chok from Singapore delighted with tartar of Norwegian scallop with a spicy miso dip to mention one. There were almost 100 different dishes on offer.”

During the Seafood Dinner the NBAS Award was presented. This was the third time ever. The award goes to an individual or company who has distinguished themselves and demonstrated a significant commitment to enhancing the business relations between Norway and Singapore. This year’s NBAS Award was presented to Mr. Frank Arne Naesheim from Snorre Food.

The Seafood Dinner, now in its 15th year, was sponsored by the Norwegian Seafood Council, Odfjell and Scandinavian Airlines.
