      Vancouver’s Shangri-La Hotel (1115 Alberni Street) has been around for a decade, and the luxury hospitality establishment will be celebrating its milestone with a special culinary event.

      Its in-house restaurant, Market by Jean-Georges, will be hosting chef Daniel Cheung of one Michelin-Star Shang Palace from Hong Kong’s Kowloon Shangri-La.

      Chef Cheung will be teaming up with Market’s executive chef, Ken Nakano, for two 10th anniversary multicourse dinners ($120 per person, plus taxes and gratuity) this weekend (March 15 and 16).

      Diners can expect to enjoy award-winning Cantonese cuisine paired with fresh B.C. produce. Featured menu items include marinated sliced geoduck with spring-onion oil and salmon roe, double-boiled pork broth with 30-years dried tangerine peel and snow fungus, and fried rice with minced wagyu-beef served in a whole tomato.

      Sweetened almond tea with egg white alongside chilled osmanthus and water-chestnut roll will be served for dessert—a sweet and subtle finish after a meal full of bold flavours.

      “It’s an honour to welcome chef Cheung into our kitchen to celebrate our 10 year anniversary,” said Nakano in a press statement. “Our approach and culinary philosophy reflects the same core principle—that the provenance of ingredients, combined with thoughtful presentation, is of paramount importance. We look forward to presenting a five-course tasting menu that evokes the grandeur of traditional China, while incorporating the fresh ingredients of the Pacific Northwest.”

      Limited seating is available, and reservations can be made by calling 604-695-1115.
