“Many people may regard fine dining as an expensive meal in the most exquisite dining ambience with pitch-perfect services. To me, fine dining is not just that. Fine dining is an art through which the chef wholeheartedly expresses his creativity in the cuisine by startlingly mix-and-matching genuine flavours of the chosen ingredients to create an exceptional delight on my palate. Fine dining is also a feeling of happy anxiety when I am always looking forward to the new surprises in the coming course throughout my meal. With perfect pairing of wine, my happy anxiety will transform into a kind of lasting gastronomic love that I can’t live without.” ~ Chelsea Chan
