Photos from the #CHEFDISHFOODFEST

It was all FUN and GAMES at the #ChefDishFoodFest hosted by Samantha’s Bistro in partnership with YD Agency on the 16th and 17th of April 2017(Easter Sunday & Monday). Guests really made FOOD ART with their various colourful food-themed paintings.
 Kids had fun doing what they know how to do best and adults, not to be left out or outdone, rekindled,channeled into and connected with that inner childlike nature of theirs.

It was really a day to be remembered for all its FUN and FESTivities.
