亞洲餐飲廚藝協會,搭建平台,推廣香港餐飲文化

香港,由於其歷史特殊性,西方文化和中國傳統文化在這
交織薈萃,形成了融貫中西的“香港特色”。以美食為例,中
餐飲食文化是核心,但除了傳承已久的粵菜,香港還有口味
正宗的西餐和日本料理,幾乎各個地方的美食都能在香港找
到。

隨著東西方文化的交融,香港餐飲文化也發生了改變。一
方面是融入了健康養生、綠色環保等時尚理念;另一方面則
是中西互補,“中餐西吃”就是借鑒學習的產物,而有些西餐
廳亦吸納了一些中餐的元素。傳統的中菜,崇尚同分享,齊
熱鬧的吃法,而現代一些中餐館引入西式的擺設藝術,而變
得更加精緻,甚至在出品上就帶有西式味道。餐飲變得越來
越藝術化,以滿足越來越個性化的消防主張。

這些變化和特色,讓香港“美食之都”的城市名片得以傳承
下來,且影響力越來越廣泛。作為旅遊業的周邊領域,這恰
恰也是提升香港旅遊業的優勢之一,應該維護和發揚好。

亞洲餐飲廚藝協會就是這樣一個打造和宣傳香港美食文化
的平台。我們集結了一眾香港名廚和高水平餐廳,目的是搭
建起一個平台,讓香港餐飲業同亞洲其他地區的同行通過比
賽與交流,互相學習,互相促進。每年舉辦的「亞洲名廚精
英薈」已經舉辦了十一年,從最初的香港和南海兩地,擴展
到澳門加入,再到台灣,如今已吸引到韓國,馬來西亞,日
本等亞洲國家和地區相繼加入,對推動海峽兩岸暨港澳乃亞
洲地區的交流及餐飲行業的發展都有積極作用。

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.
