The Chef trained under Michelin-starred French Chef Gerald Passedat at his two Marseille restaurants Le Petit Nice–Passedat (Michelin 3-starred) and Le Môle Passedat, MuCEM (Michelin 2-starred).

“My cooking style is greatly influenced by these renowned international culinary figures, strictly selecting highest quality ingredients and striking a balance between taste and presentation,” Chef Kwan Wai-Chung, Executive Chef of Cadenza said.

Having developed his individual culinary style and delicate cooking skills, the Chef quickly established a reputation of his own, winning a Silver Award at the Asian Culinary Contest 2014, and Bronze Medal for his vegetarian entry to the HOFEX Hong Kong International Culinary Classic.

Highlights of the promotional a la carte menu inspired by Chef Kwan include USA Prime Beef Carpaccio, topped with mushrooms, shallot and parsley coulis; and Maine Lobster Bisque, with sweet corn and lobster ragout. Premium scallops are selected for his Pan-Seared Hokkaido Scallopswrapped with Julienne Spanish Ham, textured with crisp pancetta and balanced with sweet white asparagus cream.

Chef Kwan’s version of Caesar Salad is uniquely deconstructed, using slow-cooked rather than hard-boiled egg, and crispy instead of shaved Parmesan, along with Parma ham and anchovy.Underlining his passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine, his Garden Grilled Root Vegetables with quinoa and capsicum emulsion incorporates baby carrot and baby corn, with quinoa and capsicum emulsion slow-cooked with onion.

Porcini Risotto Chanterelle, Black Trumpet and Percorino is slow-cooked to enhance the vibrant, earthy textures and flavours of the three different mushrooms, elegantly presented with rocket.Red Prawns Fettuccine with garlic, Datterino tomatoes, chili and basil is made with meaty Spanish Red Prawns, bringing a seafood flavour to the pasta in a refreshing sauce, for a sweet and slightly spicy dish perfect for summer.

Meaty summer specialties include USDA Prime Rib Eye 12oz Grilled Vegetables, Vine-ripen Tomatoes and Demi-Glaze, Australian Lamb Rack with Confit Potatoes, Baby Leek and Broccoli Puree, and Roasted French Spring Chicken with Spring Vegetables, Lemon and Thyme.

“The budget pricing of the promotional menu is unrivalled for the quality of ingredients. We have a very strict selection process and only offers the best to our customers,” Chef Kwan added.
