Chef Umberto Bombana of 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana in Hong Kong - also one of Asia’s Top 20 Restaurants - is The Miele Guide’s inaugural Chef of Chefs.
Prior to the 2011 gala launch of the guide, chefs of restaurants featured in the 2010/2011 edition of the Guide were invited to cast a vote for a chef peer from the same pool of featured establishments.
They were asked to identify the individual who embodied – and embodies – the qualities they most respect and admire, be it a fearless, adventurous spirit within the kitchen, philanthropic efforts without, or a commitment to preserving local cuisines and traditions.
As the recipient of the support and admiration of the region’s most illustrious chefs, Chef Bombana was presented, during the gala dinner, with a state-of-the-art range of Miele cooking equipment as well as a personalised Zwiesel vase.
The Miele Guide is committed to continually driving the aspirations of Asia’s chefs and restaurateurs and celebrating the superlative dining experiences that abound in the region.
By recognizing the tireless dedication of the region’s passionate chefs to their art, this annual award aims to bolster their efforts and recognize their endeavours in the many years to come.
