The class is now open for registration. If you want to learn from a master chef, you cannot miss the chance!
Daniel Fung, Head of Strategy & Innovation and Commercial - HK Utilities at Towngas said, "We all know that flame cooking is essential to Chinese cuisine that requires 'wok hei'. However, no matter what types of cuisine they are, flame cooking plays an important part."
He added, "Actually, many renowned restaurants that offer different types of cuisine chosen by the MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2021 are business clients of Towngas, with the Star Chefs agreeing that flame cooking is an indispensable part of curating delicacies. Their endorsement is a recognition and excitement to us at Towngas, pushing us to take a step forward to reach new heights after becoming MICHELIN's official energy partner this year in Hong Kong and Macau, and we all share the same vision of innovation and sustainability."
