The enthusiastic Chef from Hong Kong is also a health buff and a fan of fusion cuisines. He says preparing healthy cuisines is a personal advocacy as he cares for the people who eat his food. One of his specialty dish is a “steamed king prawns with wolf-berry and garlic in violet rice” – a perfect source of protein and mineral substance, which also prevents high blood pressure. He complements his dishes with healthier options of ingredients.
Chef Peter also loves to try different flavors from various cuisines particularly Japanese, Mediterranean, and Italian, and incorporate them to Cantonese dishes. “I want to learn and do things differently everyday. I don’t want to limit myself and be boxed because there a lot of opportunities to be better,” says the Chef.
