Defining taste is about experimenting with the expectation of what’s coming. Mixing expectations up, breaking them down, and reinventing the experience of taste, is what I do. My creations result in revelation. I specialize in euphoria and overwhelm you with the eclectic equivalent of life’s gifts. Gifts like flying to a new world for the first time, the flirtatious glance of a stranger, a ray of light catching your eye at sunset or reuniting with someone you lost. It’s balance. All at once.

 

I take your experience and shake it up by using combinations of textures, local ingredients, bold taste and contrast. I evoke memories by using classics. A hidden surprise awaits you in each creation. And you won’t see them coming. Those who dare to taste get to keep the memory.

A hidden surprise awaits you in each creation

 

After travelling to the corners of the world, I now call Hong Kong home. I work globally, creating dessert menus and training chefs. I travel to the hotspots of the culinary world, to the places with the tastiest ingredients, and to challenging assignments. What defines me is the thrill of life, whether I find it in sports, food or friends. I seek discovery, wherever I am. What inspires me is seeking the simplicity of local markets and what they offer. What I find, I bring home and unleash my ideas onto. 

 

I overwhelm you with the eclectic equivalent of life’s gifts
