For the inaugural food-themed issue of November’s Hong Kong Tatler, we decided to bring together some of the city’s leading tastemakers for an afternoon of culinary chinwagging, to discuss some of the most pertinent issues on the food scene today. Among the group were chefs, entrepreneurs, restaurateurs and writers, each bringing to the table their own expertise, experiences and – perhaps most thrillingly – a dish to share among the group.
