The Executive Committee is pleased to organise a private culinary dinner prepared by celebrity chef Jacky Yu at his new studio Xi Yan – Penthouse in Shau Kei Wan.
In his one and only previous career, Jacky was a graphic designer with his own practice. After more than two decades in the business, he decided to follow his heart and established the Xi Yan Restaurant. At the heart of it, lies Jacky’s inspiring passion for food and his love of the arts. As a painter and ceramic artist, Jacky appreciates that food and the arts are one and the same.
Since then, Jacky has not looked back. He was selected as one of Asia’s top movers and shakers by the Asia Inc Magazine. In 2007, he represented China/Hong Kong to participate in a nation-wide telecast food demonstration at Lyon, France. In addition, he has hosted many prime-time television cooking series and published nine best-selling cookbooks. He epitomizes a new generation of creative cuisine artists who are challenging and changing the concept of food.
Jacky’s creation is fundamentally modern Chinese but brings together diverse Asian culinary cultures. Some of his signature dishes include Sichuan spicy chicken, crispy tangerine peel pork belly, braised abalone in Japanese sake and soy sauce, etc. For our members, Jacky will prepare a special menu from what’s freshest of the season. And whatever it is, we know it will be a feast for the eyes as well as our palate.
