Restaurants: The ICC’s Ritz-Carlton venues
Background: With tattoos on his arms and a stylish goatee, Hongkonger Jacky Lo personifies the new breed of young 'n' hungry chefs. The sous-chef at The Ritz-Carlton in the ICC, working in his own private dining room and specialising in French cuisine, has already won accolades, including being in the top five of 2015’s regional San Pellegrino Young Chef awards for Northeast Asia. This guy has huge potential, so he’s surely one to watch in 2017.
What 2017 holds: Lo says: "In 2017, I want to enter the Young Chef awards again and win! I also want to experiment with Chinese medicine and create a dining experience which fuses these 'foods' with my modern French techniques and local ingredients. Finally, I want people to know that food is not just about the taste. It’s about the art and the story. I think 2017 is a big year for me!"
