Chef Ip Chi Cheung

Prior to joining Island Shangri-La as the Executive Chinese Chef of Summer Palace, Chef Ip was previously at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong, where he held the same position at the hotel’s Shang Palace. In the 16 years under his supervision, Shang Palace achieved a list of significant local and international awards, including a one-star rating in the Michelin Guide for Hong Kong and Macau in 2009 and 2010.

In 2008, Chef Ip was among a select few internationally-renowned chefs invited to participate at the prestigious St. Moritz Gourmet Festival. The annual event is a platform for creative exchange between great master chefs and young talents from around the world.

In 2002, Summer Palace was chosen as one of only ten “Great Hotel Restaurants” worldwide by HOTELS magazine, USA.

Chef Ip commenced his apprenticeship when he was just 14 years old. After perfecting his cooking skills in a number of notable Hong Kong restaurants, including Yung Kee and Fook Lam Moon, Chef Ip was appointed Head Chef of the Flower Lounge Chinese Restaurant in 1987.

Four years later he joined Aberdeen Marina Club, a premier private club operated by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. When Island Shangri-La opened in 1991, Chef Ip was appointed Chef Lee Keung’s right-hand man at the hotel’s Summer Palace.
