Celebrating its 10th edition, the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival returns with world-class food, drinks, and entertainment, all to be held right alongside the stunning Victoria Harbour skyline. Aside from wine-pairing meals designed by master chefs and tasting classes by industry experts, there will be about 450 booths featuring everything from single malts to single-origin coffee to keep your palate refreshed.
Organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), this edition features 10 new highlights, including 10 food and wine zones, a “2009 Vintage” series to commemorate the 10th birthday, Chateau wines from several regions (including Burgundy, Croatia and Russia as first-timers), and much more. One major expected highlight is the 10-Michelin-starred dinner: an event where five visiting master chefs, who have been awarded a total of eight Michelin stars, will collaborate with two renowned Hong Kong chefs from (both one-Michelin-starred) restaurants Man Wah and Mandarin Grill + Bar to concoct a highly anticipated wine pairing banquet with eight courses, fusing Chinese, Thai and French elements. Four overseas master chefs even came to Hong Kong ahead of time for local inspiration for the banquet. Chef Bee Satongun (restaurant Paste Bangkok), Chef Lin Cheng Chin (The Guest House restaurant, Taiwan) and Chef Kentaro Chen (Shisen Hanten restaurant, Singapore) are among the invited chefs.
There will also be a birthday party with prizes valued at over HKD $1 million, an “international street eat zone”, where specialists in street food will tailor unique dishes, and the “coffee fiesta” area, dedicated to showing what Hong Kong has best, regarding coffee and pastry shops. To make everything easier, e-payment will be available for convenient purchases.
