Chris Dwyer is a Hong Kong-based freelance food and travel writer.
He is regularly filing across some of the world’s most respected media platforms including CNN.com, BBC Travel, The South China Morning Post, inflight magazines, luxury lifestyle titles and more. He has contributed regularly to www.finedininglovers.com since 2014.
One of his particular passions is gastronomy, especially the cultural stories behind quality produce. He has reported on a huge variety of ingredients: from jamón ibérico in southern Spain to caviar in China, pufferfish in Japan to oysters in England, cheese in France’s Comté region to wagyu cattle in Australia that are fed chocolate. Speaking to chefs, both legends and rising stars, is another key interest and he has been lucky to interview more than 200 since starting to write professionally in 2014. Alain Ducasse and Elena Arzak, Gaggan Anand and Anthony Bourdain, Daniel Humm and Dominique Crenn are just some of those that he has had the pleasure to learn from.
To date he has visited 85 countries, taking helicopter tours in remote Bhutan, traversing Micronesia, chronicling the rise of food trucks in Kenya or the stunning biodiversity of The Galapagos.
Previously, Chris spent 13 years at CNN International where he led the global news network’s communications teams in London and subsequently Hong Kong. In addition to his travel and food writing, he also consults across editorial and communication projects for high-profile corporate brands, especially in the hospitality space.
Educated in England, France and the United States, he holds an honours degree in French Literature from University College London and speaks fluent English and French, with working knowledge of German and Spanish.
