<<13th November, 2018 – Hong Kong>> InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong, home to some of the city’s most outstanding restaurants and bars, announces the first culinary collaboration between two of its esteemed chefs. Chinese Executive Chef Leung Fai-Hung at Hoi King Heen, currently celebrating his 40th year in the kitchen, will join force with British Celebrity Chef Theo Randall, the mastermind behind authentic Italian restaurant Theo Mistral by Theo Randall, to showcase the best of Cantonese and Italian cuisine over an exclusive six-course degustation menu. This inspired menu will be available for two nights only, between 28 and 29 November 2018, from 7pm onwards in the Library Room and serving up to 20 guests per evening.
Experience an once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between two master chefs of varying culinary backgrounds, styles and techniques. Priced at HK$1,388+10% per guest, the exclusive 6-course four-hand menu will feature the finest seasonal delicacies from Italian and Cantonese cuisines. Noted dishes by Chef Randall include Beef Tartare with Red Chilli and Saffron Carnaroli Rice with Girolle and Porcini Mushrooms, both served with fresh shavings of Italy’s prized and in-season Alba white truffle from Italy. On the contrary, Chef Leung’s signature Double-boiled Fish Maw & Sea Conch Soup as well as his Braised Garoupa Fillet with Shanghai Hairy Crab Roe introduce the added excitement of Himalayan black truffle. The dinner will conclude with a divine dessert crafted by both chefs.
“Chef Leung is a highly respected chef in Hong Kong specializes in Cantonese gastronomy with 40 years of culinary experience. It is my honour to work with him on this occasion. This is the first time I co-created a menu featuring my Italian-inspired cooking alongside authentic Cantonese cuisine. An interesting collaboration, sounds extreme yet harmonious!” says Chef Theo Randall of Theo Mistral by Theo Randall.
“While Italian and Chinese seem far off from each other in terms of cuisine types, you would be surprised just how many similarities they actually share. I am delighted to collaborate with Chef Randall on a menu I’ve been curious to try for a long time. It’s been a great learning and inspiring experience for me,” says Chef Leung Fai-Hung of Hoi King Heen.
