As an extremely difficult 2020 already drew to a close, the food industry is still expecting more challenges and trends in 2021. TastyTrip Gastronomic Forum is now presented with a renewed and dynamic look, which shows the focus on the development, value and future of Chinese cuisine. It will also discuss the use of local ingredients, as well as in-depth sessions on humanity and sustainability. This year’s forum will be joined by a new panelist, Yin Hao, executive chef at King’s Joy, Michelin three-starred restaurants. In addition, internationally renowned celebrity chefs from top restaurants around the world will be taking part via the internet for a unique and exciting cross-country conversation.

This year, TastyTrip Gastronomic Forum will be presenting three major sessions, including “Chinese Cuisine: Innovation and Inheritance”, “Food as Language: Restaurant Industry East MeetsWest”, and “Humanity and Sustainability in the Restaurant Industry”.

2020TastyTrip Gastronomic Forum

Chinese Cuisine: Innovation and Inheritance

Recent years have seen many in the restaurant industry striving to interpret Chinese fine dining. How can Chinese cuisine, widely seen as one of the richest and most diverse culinary heritage in the world, be combined with modern culinary trends? Or more specifically, how can traditional Chinese cuisine be blended with the context of times to incorporate creativity? Xu Jingye of 102 House, winner of the Essence of Asia by Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Liu Huadong, founder and head chef of Nanxing Garden, a Sichuanese restaurant in Shanghai, and Zhu Haifeng, founder and head Chef of Beijing’s Michelin two-starred restaurant Wulixiang, will share with us their insights at the forum. 

A secret panellist will talk about the immense possibilities of Chinese ingredients based on his professional experience.

Food as Language: Restaurant Industry East Meets West

The interchanges between Chinese cuisine and Western cuisine have never been more prominent these days. The notion of “East meets West” is not new, but in China, fusion cuisine is being reinvented and is becoming increasingly the norm among numerous high-end restaurants. Many young chefs are still cooking with Chinese ingredients and flavours but sipping on inspirations from Western culinary techniques and presentations. This new fusion trend is perhaps the next clearest influence on the global dining scene, much like molecular cuisine and Nordic cuisine which once reshaped the food world. To capture this hotspot, TastyTrip invites a number of young celebrity chefs to share their views. They are Miles Pundsack-Poe, head chef of the popular restaurant Ensue in Shenzhen, Talib Hudda, celebrated head chef of Refer in Beijing.

Humanity and Sustainability in Restaurant Industry

With humanity and sustainability trends high on the global agenda, how would the restaurant industry rethink its sustainable practices? TastyTrip invites Gary Yin from Beijing’s three-starred Michelin restaurant King’s Joy, also the first-ever recipient of Michelin’s “Green Star” in China, to talk about “A Sustainable Vegetarian Future”.

Zoom Talk: What Will Fine Dining Industry Look Like After Covid?

Also on this session, international celebrity chefs who are ranked among top 10 public speakers will give observations and perspectives on the food and beverage industry in the post-pandemic era through online talk.
