Hong Kong is renowned for its culinary scene, that ranges from Michelin-starred fine dining to family style restaurants and to a vibrant street food culture. But this May the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau is sponsoring what could be called Hong Kong’s ultimate culinary event and foodies across the globe are taking note.

As part of a unique chef collaboration series called the International Chef Showcase, on May 3rd and 4th culinary stars Wilson Fam and Angelo Wong of Yí and Hong Kong native guest chef Vicky Lau of the TATE Dining Room will combine forces.

Representing their respective restaurants, chefs Wilson, Angelo and Vicky will work together on an eight-course dinner paired with Robert Parker rated wines with a minimum of 90 points each, curated by Yí’s Head Sommelier.
