Taste of Hong Kong
Four days of eating, drinking and entertainment, from 22th to 25th March 2018

From just one show in London, over 13 years ago, Taste has rapidly grown to become part of the social season for foodies, restaurant-lovers, and chef groupies in with 24 festivals around the globe. Wherever it is in the world, Taste represents foodie heaven: stunning food prepared by the city’s greatest restaurants, world famous chefs, superb drinks and outstanding entertainment, set in stunning outdoor surroundings. “Taste Festivals could make a case for being the first organisations to introduce the concepts of pop ups and small plates” The Wall Street Journal

The Institut Culinaire Disciples Escoffier (ICDE) is our professional culinary school based in Hong Kong, in partnership with Towngas Cooking Centre, and providing Culinary Arts and Pastry programs.

Our philosophy is driven by Auguste Escoffier (1846-1936), the legendary “King of Chefs, Chef of Kings”, widely considered the father of modern French cuisine. While introducing unprecedented standards of sophistication and elegance to the world of fine dining and luxury hospitality, Escoffier always insisted that dishes be simpler, lighter, and made from fresh ingredients. He never stopped innovating, and believed as we do that “cooking will evolve in parallel with society’s evolution, while always remaining an art form”.




The Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited officially established the Towngas Cooking Centre in May 1977. Its opening turned a new page in the history of culinary education in Hong Kong. Its establishment has created unique opportunities for customers to experience the joy of gourmet flame cookery.

In 2018, Towngas Cooking Centre has achieved the milestone of cultivating flame cooking for over 40 years and has invited Steve Lee (“Ding Yeh”), a flame cooking aficionado, to promote flame cooking and authentic Chinese cuisine in Hong Kong. Aired on TVB Jade Channel, “The Ahistoric Grandpa Cooking Show” soon became one of the hottest shows in the city, setting off a new wave of flame cooking enthusiasm.
