The 9th edition of the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival is set to be staged at the Central Harbourfront event space from Thursday 26th to Sunday 29th October 2017. Organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and title-sponsored by China Construction Bank (Asia), the event will open this year's Hong Kong Great November Feast, which is a whole month of wine events, street carnivals and gastronomic indulgence.
Dubbed as the largest event of its kind in Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival history, the festival will see the most exciting chef line-up. Together with the new Robert Parker Wine Advocate Pavilion and over 400 wine and dine booths, this four-day non-stop food and wine tasting event will make a wonderful gathering no food or wine lover will want to miss!
Chicago Chef Curtis Duffy, known for his immaculately constructed dishes and star of the award-winning documentary “For Grace,” awarded three Michelin Stars for four consecutive years and a James Beard award, affectionately known as the “Oscars of the culinary world.” Taiwan-born chef André Chiang is recognized as one of the most influential chefs in Asia with his “Octa-philosophy” of eight elements in his dishes. His French Restaurant André topped the lists and was ranked 2nd and 14th respectively of this year’s Asia and World's 50 Best Restaurants. Singaporean chef Janice Wong appeared as a guest judge in season seven of Australia’s Masterchef. Nicknamed the Dessert Queen, owner of the 2am:dessertbar, and consultant partner of Hong Kong’s COBO HOUSE, the Cordon Bleu-educated Wong was named Asia’s Best Pastry Chef for two consecutive years.
