Three More Michelin Stars for China’s Most Esteemed Chef
Four Seasons Hong Kong Executive Chef Chan Yan Tak retains his three Michelin stars for the fifth consecutive year.
Congratulations are in order for the chefs at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. The fifth edition of the highly regarded Michelin Guide for Hong Kong Macau 2013 has once again awarded both Lung King Heen and Caprice its coveted three-star rating.
In honour of this recognition, Taste published an in-depth profile of Executive Chef Chan Yan Tak of Lung King Heen, the first chef in China ever to receive a three-star distinction. His take on Cantonese cuisine, seasonal creativity and dedication to finding the highest-quality ingredients—no matter how simple the dish—caught the attention of Michelin well before the first Hong Kong guide was published.
The restaurant’s seasonal menu includes more than 100 choices, an impressive feat given Tak’s high standards. Highlights include some of the freshest Cantonese-style seafood dishes in the city, made to order using ingredients that were more than likely sourced from Hong Kong’s famous “wet markets” and plucked from a tank in the kitchen.
