Time Out Hong Kong Dining Awards 2009: Star Chef/Creativity
Emma Renfrew, head pastry chef, The Press Room Group
She is not reinventing the wheel with showy, ego-driven recipes inspired by the latest kitchen trickery. Instead, Emma Renfrew is bringing sexy back to the otherwise forgotten art of raiding your mother’s recipes box. It’s not easy being a female in high-octane restaurants such as The Pawn, SML, Classified and The Press Room. In her cosy nook she creates poached pear tarte tatin, carmel profiteroles in butterscotch, and pots of chocolate. And for that, she deserves to be on this list.
