Imagine you work at Virgin and Richard Branson walks in. Or at the Apple store and the ghost of Steve Jobs makes an appearance. Luckily a very special guest doesn’t put the chef off his game at Upper Modern Bistro.

Welcome. I’m lucky to live in one of the world’s great food cities, Hong Kong, where I write about our incredibly rich and diverse culinary culture. I also write about global restaurants, hotels, luxury travel and more for platforms including CNN.com, Cathay Pacific's Discovery magazine, FHM, Destinasian, Tasting Kitchen and Billionaire.
