The food created by the 39-year-old Hong Kong native is described as “elegant, delicious, sophisticated”. In 2015, Lau was named Best Female Chef in Asia, having taken a somewhat unusual career path: at the age of 15, she moved to the USA, studying graphic communications in New York and then working at an advertising agency for six years, before taking a three-month basic culinary course in Bangkok, more by chance than by design. In 2012, she opened the Tate Dining Room in Hong Kong, where she serves French cuisine with Asian influences. “Cooking has extended my capacity for creativity,” says Lau. In 2013, she was awarded a Michelin star and today she is called the “undisputed queen of French fine-dining in Hong Kong”.
