The winners of the 2016 Best of the Best Culinary Awards were selected at the finals held at the Chinese Cuisine Training Institute on 19 and 20 July. Organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and co-organised by The Hong Kong and China Gas Company, this year’s event featured four categories – an egg dish, pork dish, dim sum (rice rolls), and crab dish. A total of 10 dishes received the highest Gold with Distinction Award. The finals also saw the crowning of the four “Most Liked Chefs” in each respective category.
The judging panel, formed by renowned local food critics, celebrity chefs and other personalities, rated the dishes based on various criteria, including taste and smell of the dishes, the culinary knowledge and skills of the chefs, the combination of ingredients and sauces, presentation and creativity. In addition to the Gold with Distinction Award, there were Gold Awards and Silver Awards in each category. For the “Most Liked Chef” award, which was added this year, the selection criteria included appearance, communication skills and personal charisma.
Various dishes given the Gold with Distinction Award will also be available at the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, which will be held at the Central Harbourfront Event Space in October. Visitors and local residents can enjoy a 20% discount on the awarded dishes in November as part of the HKTB’s promotion.
