André Chiang Wins Asia's 50 Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2018
27 February, 2018
Chef André Chiang of Restaurant André in Singapore and RAW in Taipei has been named as the recipient of the The Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award 2018 as part of this year's Asia's 50 Best Restaurants awards sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna.
The Taiwanese chef recently closed his Singapore flagship to concentrate on projects in his home country and told us last year that he was looking forward to rediscovering his homeland's cuture and produce, as well as helping to train a new generation of chefs.
Chiang will receive the award at the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony in Macao on 27 March, which you can live-stream in its entirety on Fine Dining Lovers. Also picking up an award on the night will be chef Bee Satongun of Bangkok's Paste restaurant, who has been named Asia's Best Female Chef 2018.
Staff shortages are hitting the hospitality sector hard, prompting some restaurants to look outside the industry to train those without restaurant experience for life in the kitchen. Andrew Friedman finds out more.
