Hello from Hong Kong

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

Knowing how easily this step is forgotten I decided to get right to it.

So - my name is Patrick and I have been living in Hong Kong for the better part of my adult life.

 

Food has always been a passion and over the years I have "honed" the skills until finally getting up and attending cooking school (yes, it is called Culinary Academy, but let's be honest - most of us do it for the cooking *smile*).

 

I have worked in quite a few kitchens across Asia and finally, last year, decided to launch something new, something inspired, something that was more focused on what I wanted to do in the kitchen, not necessarily what the customer wanted (which surprisingly in most of the places I worked focused around steaks / burgers / and something quick and easy for the wife...)

 

Anyways - drifting here a bit - I started my own private kitchen and have been happily doing so now for over a year.

 

Looking forward to some interesting topics and connecting with other passionate foodies and cooks :)

 

Cheers from the 852

 

Pat

Thank you very much for the warm welcome

Well - the chances are normally quite good seeing that there are not many "local" chefs and Hong Kong has a great food market.

 

Mind you - the immigration department on the other hand has decreased the quota for "expat employees" making it very hard for anyone to get a working visa at the moment.

We are all hoping that they relax this a little mid of this year - I'll definitely keep you posted if I hear anything if you are interested in venturing to these shores ;)

 

Cheers
