The World Gourmet Summit 2014 has invited special guests to interact with their peers, and exchange ideas and insights into latest dining trends around the world. These accomplished individuals might play an important role in the F&B and hospitality industry or another industry where they are the experts in their field.  Attend these events they are gracing and participate in exchanges to tap on their expertise and knowledge.



Glen Ballis

With 30 years experience in the industry, Glen started his career in Melbourne, Australia.  He joined Hyatt International and climbed the ranks within the company. The ambition to travel and gain overseas exposure led him to leave Australia for a position with Banyan Tree Resorts, where he worked for six years, reaching Corporate Chef for the company. Glen joined Shangri-la Hotels in China and later moved to Malaysia as Executive Chef. After nearly 12 years in Asia an opportunity in London beckoned to oversee the food and beverage operations of arguably the world's most famous department store, Harrods.  

In 2006, he was offered a position to open famed Russian restauranteur Arkady Novikov's flagship restaurant Nedalny Vostok in Moscow. From there he became business partners with Novikov, and now owns and operates six restaurants and bars in Moscow. 

Glen makes regular appearances on "Russia Today" and his Moscow restaurants are a regular stop for many of the world's top Celebrities. Through his career he has won numerous awards and accolades, his restaurant Roni won Best Moscow Restaurant in 2012 for Prime Magazine and Menu Magazine. His recent concept "Zupperia" won the Time Out Moscow Critics Award, "Best New Concept 2013". 

Glen has been looking for a return to Asia for some time, and in July last year, along with his son Daniel, the pair opened Moosehead Kitchen-Bar.

This is the first time since the opening that Glen has had the opportunity to cook his food at Moosehead and is proud to be participating in this year's World Gourmet Summit.

Join us on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 March to experience an 8 course set menu, designed to share by Glen Ballis. 

In addition to the two set menu events, Glen will also run a small selection menu on top of the regular menu at Moosehead from Monday 31 March to Saturday 5 April.
