We’re feeding your curiosity through our exclusive chats with the city’s top chefs at Taste of Hong Kong this March

At Tatler Dining, there’s a lot of culinary chinwagging. From quizzing new chefs in town about what they’re bringing to the table to getting deep into the how’s and why’s of their careers, we’ve always been passionate about digging into these stories.

For the third year, we’ll be back at Taste of Hong Kong to delve into the world of F&B with our highly anticipated series of consuming conversations, where you’ll be able to get up close and personal with your favourite chefs and tastemakers.

In line with our recent rebrand from Tatler Dining to Tatler Dining, we’ve shed our former Tatler Table series and are bringing a refreshed format to the festival. With Off Menu, we’ll be going—as the name suggests—a little off-piste, to discover more about the names behind the restaurants and what makes them tick. 

You’ll find familiar faces such as May Chow of Little BaoAlvin Leung of Bo Innovation, and Vicky Cheng of VEA—and we’re excited also to introduce a few international guests to the panel as well, from London’s Andrew Wong (of the newly Michelin-minted A Wong restaurant) to Theo Randall, who has just relaunched InterContinental Grand Stanford’s Mistral restaurant. We’ll also be hosting a dynamic session with Diageo’s Global Cocktailian Lauren Mote, who will be discussing all things drinks with The Woods’ Victoria Chow.

Each session will be hosted by our Tatler Dining editors and, as Off Menu is an open space for interaction, the audience is invited to throw their questions into the ring and join the conversation. So, join us for these one-off, limited fireside chats with the best in the business—we promise each session will bring you unexpected new insights and plenty to chew on. We look forward to seeing you there!

Taste of Hong Kong takes place at the Central Harbourfront between March 22 and 25. For more about the festival, visit www.tasteofhongkong.com
