It’s the only Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant in France: the Shang Palace and its chef Samuel Lee are hosting the talented Chef Mok Kit Keung for the fourth consecutive year. With 35 years of experience, Chef Mok is a veritable artist who masters Chinese culinary traditions as much as he does the complexities of contemporary Hong Kong cuisine. This exceptional culinary week is kicking off within the Shangri-La Paris. The location itself is enough to rave about: the former private residence of Prince Roland Bonaparte in Paris’ 16th arrondissement, the Shangri-La incarnates that which is quintessentially French without a single faux pas. This 19th century architectural gem was charmingly incorporated into the art of Asian hospitality in 2009.

In the cultural heart of Paris, just minutes from the Champs Elysées and Avenue Montaigne, this week featuring the virtuosity of the twice-starred Chef Mok will take place. At lunch and dinner, his dishes will transport diners into the heart of the Middle Kingdom. This cuisine boasts finesse and precision and is sure to delight Parisians who are curious about his inventiveness, as he perfects the finest of ingredients. A delicious duck foie gras, marinated tofu à la Hangzhou, or grilled pork rolls stuffed with wild mushrooms and black garlic… In a slightly more French vein, mixed with products from Asia, one can also discover kale frog legs, Parma ham, and girolle mushrooms. Finally, a hibiscus flower and aloe vera peach gelatin or a crunchy sesame ball put the finishing touches on this splendid meal.
