Hong Kong’s largest wine & dine festival is back in October
The 9th annual CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and title-sponsored by China Construction Bank (Asia), will be staged at the Central Harbourfront event space from 26th-29th October. As the opening event for the Hong Kong Great November Feast, which is a whole month of wine events, street carnivals and gastronomic indulgence, this year’s festival will see the most exciting chef line-up in Wine & Dine Festival history. Together with the new Robert Parker Wine Advocate Pavilion and over 400 wine and dine booths, this four-day non-stop food and wine tasting event will make a wonderful gathering that no food or wine lover will want to miss.
Chicago Chef Curtis Duffy, known for his immaculately constructed dishes and star of the award-winning documentary ‘For Grace’, awarded three Michelin Stars for four consecutive years and a James Beard award, affectionately known as the ‘Oscars of the culinary world’. Taiwan-born chef André Chiang is recognized as one of the most influential chefs in Asia with his ‘Octa-philosophy’ of eight elements in his dishes. His French restaurant André topped the lists and was ranked 2nd and 14th respectively of this year’s Asia and World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Singaporean chef Janice Wong appeared as a guest judge in season seven of Australia’s MasterChef. Nicknamed the Dessert Queen, owner of the 2am:dessertbar, and consultant partner of Hong Kong’s COBO HOUSE, the Cordon Bleu-educated Wong was named Asia’s Best Pastry Chef for two consecutive years. Together, these world top chefs will cook up exquisite dishes at the special culinary events in the Tasting Room, taking guests to a whole new level of gastronomic experience.
