Vicky Lau named Asia's top female chef

Vicky Lau, the celebrated chef owner of Hong Kong’s French-inspired fine-dining restaurant Tate Dining Rooms in Hong Kong has been named the Veuve Cliquot Asia’s Best Female Chef for 2015

Lau, who opened Tate Dining Rooms in Hong Kong’s Central district in 2012, came to cooking from a career as a graphic designer, after graduating from New York University. She enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu school in Bangkok, which inspired her career change.

Tate Dining Rooms made a name for itself with Lau’s ‘Edible Stories’, creating a narrative around the chef’s French-Asian inspired menu. Diners at the 26 street restaurant are “taken on a journey”, as each course tells the story from start to finish.

Lau will be presented with her award at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony on 9 March 2015 at Capella Hotel, Singapore.
