The Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival, organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, has long been the city’s annual gastronomic extravaganza. This year, the festival is riding high on the city’s recovery, with an exciting month-long celebration in November that includes digital events as well as physical itineraries. This festival will serve as a bold reminder for foodies around the world that Hong Kong will continue to be at the top of the list of dining destinations in the post-Covid era. The disruptions caused by the pandemic have not deterred the city from its enterprising ambitions. Despite the uncertainty, plenty of new restaurants have opened in the past year, adding to the already diverse and vibrant F&B scene.
Cocktail lovers and green lifestyle enthusiasts should not miss the “Sustainable Cocktail” online masterclass hosted by Agung Prabowo of Penicillin bar, winner of Asia’s 50 Best Sustainable Bar Award for 2021. The award recognizes the creativity and effort that Prabowo and his partners put in to minimizing waste and reducing the bar’s carbon footprint. For example, potato peels are upcycled into bar snacks, excess pieces of bread and cheese are infused into new spirits, and waste alcohol and lemon peels are transformed into soaps and hand sanitizers.
