The InterContinental Hong Kong has announced the continuation of its popular “Cooking with the Culinary Stars,” series in 2015. This hands-on dining experience once again allows guests to learn to cook with the celebrated chefs at the hotel’s three Michelin-starred restaurants, including SPOON by Alain Ducasse, Yan Toh Heen, and THE STEAK HOUSE winebar + grill, as well as the property’s exclusive location of NOBU.
Throughout the series the hotel’s chefs, including Executive Chef Nicola Canuti and Sous Chef Simon Kwok, will showcase their diverse expertise in international cuisines including French, Japanese, Cantonese and American. Each class will teach guests how to create modern dishes as well as inventive takes on traditional dishes. Guests will eat lunch together, sampling the dishes they created during class.
There is something in it for the dessert lovers, too, with SPOON Pastry Chef Olivier Lannes and Executive Pastry Chef Cyril Dupuis hosting “Baking Club” classes. Guests will learn how to make a variety of desserts, including milk chocolate macarons, chocolate fondant, and sweet and sour lemon cheesecake.
The cost per person for both the “Cooking with the Culinary Stars” and “Baking Club” programs is priced at HK$1,888, or $245 USD. There is a 20 percent discount available for reservations made and paid two weeks in advance.
