Sweet Sensations By Jason Licker
May 11 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$558
Le Méridien Cyberport is proud to welcome acclaimed pastry chef Jason Licker this May. Jason Licker, winner of “2014 Iron Chef Thailand” pastry edition is pushing creativity to another level by introducing his own style of Asian inspired, palate-challenging pastries to Hong Kong gourmets.
From May 3 to 12, 2019, Jason Licker is taking over the kitchens of Umami Japanese restaurant as well as Prompt all-day-dining restaurant to introduce his latest Asia fusion desserts and Asian- Accented afternoon tea menu.
Originally from Long Island, Jason started his first internship at Union Square Café in New York. The experience he has gained by working for the world-renowned Jean Georges Restaurant as a pastry cook had prepared him for his first pastry chef position at Metrazur for Charlie Palmer at the age of 23. After being appointed as the Executive Chef of the Shore Club in Miami Beach and the Peninsula New York, Jason left the United States for a life of professional adventures in Asia, helming the Executive Pastry Chef positions at the Westin Bund in Shanghai, the Venetian Macau Hotel and Resort, the JW Marriott Hong Kong and was the former corporate pastry chef of Cé La Vi restaurants (Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore). In 2014, Jason won the “Iron Chef” pastry edition in Thailand and in 2017, his self-published cookbook: Asian-Accented desserts by Jason Licker was nominated for a James Beard Award, which is claimed as the “Oscars” of the food world in the United States.
Jason creates desserts that reach all four-taste areas on the tongue – sweet, sour, salty and bitter, while combining textural contrasts and temperature differences. Influenced heavily by Asian flavours, Jason is introducing his delectable pastries with four a la carte desserts at Umami restaurant and six sweet items featured in the afternoon tea menu at Prompt restaurant.
