Asia Art of Cuisine Society
Hong Kong’s catering and culinary industries benefit from unique factors. The city is renowned worldwide as a great place to eat and receives over million hungry people every year. Many city residents live in small apartments with tiny kitchens, so it is no surprise that Hong Kong has more than 12,000 restaurants, with more opening each day. This is an industry that helps define Hong Kong’s reputation and standing in the rest of the world, so it is vital to make sure the chefs’ quality and manpower are met.
Few catering organizations in Hong Kong have more experience of the issue facing the restaurant industry than the Asia Ar t of Cuisine Society.
It is always our intention to build the Asia Ar t of Cuisine Society as a natural magnet, bringing together celebrity chefs around the globe under the same roof to share experience and ideas, ultimately facilitating the growth and development of the world’s culinary industry. This new chapter of Hong Kong’s culinary industry will star t a long voyage in our endeavor to make the city to be a centre of culinary excellence, which will
extend beyond Hong Kong and reach many generations to come.
Tourists and locals are becoming more affluent and with more money to spend on food and wine, this would help to make Hong Kong a very diverse place for dining, and I think this is very much par t of our contribution to Hong Kong as a world city.
