Chef Vanessa Huang of Taipei’s Ephernité will be joined in a four-hand dinner series over two nights by accomplished Thai chef Thitid “Ton” Tassanakajohn, at The Mira Hong Kong’s Whisk restaurant on the 20th and 21st of September.
The dinner is part of The Mira’s celebrations of 10 years in business and the event is in collaboration with San Pellegrino and its 120 year anniversary.
Chef Haung, named one of Asia’s Top 9 female chefs by Michelin Guide in 2019 for carving out a name for herself in a male-dominated industry, is a film-making and art major whose path led her to become one of the “Bebes Barbot” – culinary new stars of the future trained by Chef Pascal Barbot of 3 Star Michelin Astrance in Paris. Following her culinary education, she opened her own restaurant back in Taiwan in 2015, where she is at the forefront of “farm to table” dining movement, celebrating the local produce by transforming it into awe-inspiring gourmet creations with a distinctive feminine touch.
Young but successful Chef “Ton” has built a small culinary empire starting with Le Du where progressive Thai, French-influenced dishes rooted in tradition reflect his exposure to some of the finest, star-studded dining institutions of the world such as Eleven Madison Park and Jean-Gorges in New York where he trained in his early days.
It will be the first time that these chefs will cook together and is a chance for Hong Kong gourmands to experience a new wave of award-winning Asian cooking. Seasonality is key to the cooking, utilising the chefs’ expertise in classic French technique, yet utilising local ingredients and authentic Asian flavours for a sublime dining experience.
Limited-seats menu will be served at WHISK on September 20 & 21, from 6:30pm – 10pm
