The gourmet journey of chef Peter Lee started in south Hong Kong in Ap Lei Chau amongst the fishmongers and dried seafood stalls near his home. As a child, he was obsessed with ingredients, and his enduring love and passion for food saw him make a life change at the age of 30 when he spent time working at the two Michelin-starred restaurant Bo innovation before realizing that culinary school in the UK was to be his next calling.

He worked as a stagiaire (apprentice) in restaurants through Hong Kong and in Sydney where he learned traditional Chinese cooking techniques in a classic Cantonese restaurant, serving dim sum by day and banquet dishes at night.

Since joining Test Kitchen in 2019 Peter has rubbed elbows with renowned chefs from around the world. This pop-up dinner features Peter’s unique neo classical cuisine that evokes Hong Kong’s cha chaan teng, his grandmother’s cooking and the sights and smells of Ap Lei Chau.

Vincent Mui, founder of TEST KITCHEN, explains that  Peter “Is one of the most passionate and humble chefs I’ve ever met, someone with a huge heart that touches the people he works alongside and ultimate shows tremendously in his food. His ‘scallop fever’ dish brilliantly combines Hong Kong’s love of the finest seafood with Chinese flavours and techniques, while ‘Grandma’s aubergine’ is a treasured family recipe for very good reason – because it’s unforgettably good.”

About chef Peter:

Peter’s gourmet journey started as a 5 year old sitting and watching his mother and grandmother cooking in the kitchen.  At the age of 30, his passion couldn’t hold anymore so he stepped into the kitchen at two Michelin-starred Bo Innovation. His mind was blown while he was there, so he decided to change his career and went to culinary school in the UK to train as a professional chef.

After graduating, he started his new life in different kitchens in Hong Kong, from the lowest local diners to fine dining establishments. He then left for Australia and worked in a Chinese restaurant in Sydney’s Chinatown, where he learnt traditional Chinese cooking techniques. In 2019, he joined TEST KITCHEN, working alongside Devon Hou and chefs around the world, from James Beard Award winners to a Michelin-Starred team from Helsinki, or an Asia 50’s Best restaurant such as Locavore from Bali. which diverse his mind about cooking by different ingredients and techniques- supporting these teams while developing his own craft along the way.
