Six Culinary Traditions

From Tradition to Table

A Celebration of Cantonese Cuisine

At the heart of Cantonese cuisine are fresh, natural flavours inspired by the Guangdong region’s abundant seafood and agriculture.

It’s about the importance of subtlety and letting ingredients speak for themselves. Mild, sweet and surprising, our chefs are masters of preparing the very best Cantonese flavours and delicacies.

Beijing's Imperial Treasure

A Celebration of Beijing Duck

Beijing Duck is a cultural symbol of Beijing, and even China itself. Over 400 years old, the much revered imperial dish of roast duck is one of the most memorable in Chinese cooking.

The traditional rites of preparation have been carefully preserved and passed down. Whether by brick oven or hung over open fire, the art of roasting duck is done with utmost care by our master chefs to create the signature crispy skin and moist meat, sliced and served with traditional accompaniments.

On the Spice Trail

A Celebration of Sichuan Cuisine

Hot. Spicy. Intense. While Sichuan cooking is most famous for the bold, mouth-numbing spiciness of peppercorns, garlic and chilli, the rich culinary tradition also offers more nuanced and complex flavours. It’s all about balance.

Our master chefs celebrate all seven key Sichuan flavours through their cooking: salty, bitter, hot, sweet, pungent, sour and aromatic, crafting carefully seasoned dishes.

Meet our Two Sichuan Chefs

Elegant Style, Exquisite Flavours

A Celebration of Huaiyang Cuisine

Huaiyang cuisine seeks to elevate the original flavour and freshness of each ingredient. Using cooking methods such as stewing, braising and steaming over a low fire for a long period of time, chefs are able to extract maximum flavour.

Classic dishes are elegantly prepared, with emphasis on the way ingredients are sliced. Our chefs will demonstrate their intricate knife skills and mastery of traditional techniques in the preparation of their signature Huaiyang dishes.

Dainty Bite-sized Delights

A Celebration of Dim Sum

Dim sum is as much a cultural tradition as it is a culinary one. Served with tea, sitting down to enjoy dim sum is a social dining experience with friends and family. It is customary to share small dishes that feature bite-sized portions of different delicacies.

Dim sum chefs need to master a large variety of different dishes and cooking styles, from steaming to roasting and frying. Our masters bring an inventive approach to traditional recipes, celebrating authentic flavours with a modern twist.
