Singapore... Way More Than A Sling...

And, another Hemmingway Tribute!

The Gilded Fork hails from New York, and has some awe-inspiring food photography. It also has the very creative Singaporean native, Damien Sim of Provocachic as its resident Mixologist and "Flavor Impressionist." (Now, that's a fancy term!)

Damien's Summer In The Woods cocktail is comprised of pan-seared buttered pineapple, brazilian rum, ruby grapefruits, maraschino liqueur and bitters. He says that Ernest Hemmingway is the inspiration for this drink... so I guess this makes Hemmingway Week an international extravaganza!

Actually, the Gilded Fork is an American website. We're based in new York. Damien, our mixologist, is from Singapore. I'm curious how you thought that the Gilded Fork was a Singaporean website...

Well, I suppose I got confused by Damien's bio which has Singapore mentioned throughout, and nothing about New York. As a first time visitor to your site, giving a glance around, it wasn't obvious to me that he lives in New York. Thanks for clearing that up.
