Chef Vicky Chen Krug x Egg recipe
Vicky Cheng
VEA
IN ESSENCE

Chef Vicky Cheng has a philosophy – anything that is edible can be turned into something beautiful to the eyes. Cheng has worked with some of the world’s best chefs, including Jason Bangerter of Auberge du Pommier, Anthony Walsh of Canoe in Toronto, and also Daniel Boulud of the Michelin-starred Restaurant Daniel in New York, before gaining exposure in the local dining scene as the executive chef of Liberty Private Works.

Until this date, he has continued to follow his strong work ethics – still waking up every morning with ideas flooding his mind on how to make guests happy and excited, and he appreciates and respects each ingredient. While skills, experience and creativity are of significant and equal importance, it is attitude that ultimately determines altitude.

As a chef who is never afraid to take risks and experiment with flavors and textures, tasting menus are interesting because they promise an endless exploration of fresh seasonal ingredients both locally produced and globally sourced, for the guests and his own pleasure.

After years working and refining his culinary techniques at various kitchens overseas, Cheng finally came back to settle in his birthplace in Hong Kong in 2011. His background has paved way to his cooking style - modern French with a touch of Asian influence is what you will find at VEA Restaurant and Lounge.

Cheng has been crowned numerous accolades, including most recently Chef of The Year at Foodie Forks 2014.

How would you describe your culinary philosophy?

Anything that is edible can be turned into something beautiful. Food waste is a big issue for me. I make a point of never wasting anything.  I truly believe that if something isn’t rotten, it should have a better use than being thrown away. Animals and plants die to feed us, we need to respect that.

What is your culinary obsession?

I’m obsessed with Chinese cuisine and ingredients. I was born here in Hong Kong, but many things are still so unfamiliar to me. It is an amazing feeling to cook things I have known from earliest childhood and yet never known how to cook.  

My number one obsession is my craft. I don’t believe I have a single obsession - I am obsessed with my journey and with what I do.  I love cooking and that is something you can tell when you step in my kitchen. I take my work very seriously and am obsessed with improving every single day.

What was the most memorable meal you either cooked or ate?

It was at Daniel in New York, following my last service at the restaurant. After spending 3 years working very hard and living a very isolate life, I took my mother to Daniel. We were seated at the Restaurant’s best table and it was a simple delight to watch my mother get blown away by the food. She, who had always been so worried about my working conditions in the city and who I knew was relieved to see me leaving, asked me in the middle of the meal: “ Vicky, why are you leaving this AMAZING restaurant?”

Which hens lay the most interesting eggs?

Japanese Taiyouran hens.

What does the area that your restaurant is situated in bring to the food you serve?

I serve what I like to serve, and cook what I believe my guest will like. Where my restaurant is at doesn’t change that, and wouldn’t.

If you could sit next to anyone from history at a dinner table and share a glass of Krug, who would that be?

My grandfather , who passed,  always drank beer and Chinese wine. I wonder if he would enjoy a glass of Krug Champagne.

For you, which musical work best expresses the emotions felt when tasting Krug Grande Cuvée?

Classical Music.

Which came first? The chicken or the egg?

The egg.

 

They share your passion for now.
