With the roller-coaster temperature in Hong Kong, it is important for us to have some food therapy to boost our immune systems to fend off the flu before the Chinese New Year.
Chef de Cuisine of Grand Café, Marc Briol has created several dishes for the first time based on traditional Chinese herbs that provide different impacts to the body. By studying Chinese culture and the concepts behind Chinese food philosophy, Chef Marc has come up with a “Luxury of Health” menu for diners to stay healthy in winter.
