Endowment Fund Event: Evening of Music and Culinary Art With Patron Dr. Christina Mathieson
In support of the HKUMS 30th Anniversary Endowment Fund, Patron Dr. Christina Mathieson and the Executive Committee of the University of Hong Kong Museum Society invite you to an elegant evening of music and culinary art at the University Lodge. Nestled among lush greens, the art-deco style home was built in 1949 and has since housed eight Vice-Chancellors of The University of Hong Kong.
The evening will begin with a music programme to showcase accomplished students – Rosanne Lee (Soprano), Timothy Wong (Piano) and Grammy Yeung (Guzheng) – from the University’s Advanced Music Performance class under the direction of Dr. Jacqueline Petitto.
Members will discover and savour the culinary arts of Vicky Lau, Asia’s Best Female Chef in 2015. Trained as a graphic designer, her talent for visual artistry is reflected in the immaculate presentation of her dishes while her innate creativity and appreciation for gourmet cuisine is evident throughout her seasonal menus. Inspired to create ‘Edible Stories’, each of Vicky’s menus originate from a common theme and consist of elaborately designed dishes that stir the imagination with their rich imagery and intriguing play on flavors and textures.
In 2013, Vicky’s skill and talent garnered her restaurant Tate Dining Room & Bar a Michelin star for three years in a row. Today, she continues to rein as the queen of French fine dining in Hong Kong and has expanded her repertoire with the launch of Butler – a unique luxury catering service. For our special evening, they will create an exquisite menu and tablescape to excite all your senses.
The HKUMS 30th Anniversary Endowment Fund will directly support the University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) and raise its level of excellence to place it as one of the leading teaching museums in Asia.
