Private Chefs Nicholas Chew And Leonard Cheung On The Rise Of Luxury Catering

Torri Donley

Just because restaurants were closed for dine-in last month, doesn’t mean Hong Kong’s one percenters were forced to slave over a stove for dinner. Trust the Tatler community to find a way to bring their favourite fine dining feasts into the comfort of their Peak, Repulse Bay and Stanley mansions and prevent the pandemic getting in the way of restaurant-grade gastronomy.

At-home luxury catering is on the rise—just look at Eleanor Lam, who flooded her Instagram feed with pictures of decadent meals prepared by the Ocean Park Marriott hotel team. Or Feiping Chang, who had the chefs from Sushi Saito at the Four Seasons hotel prepare an omakase dining experience in her kitchen.

When money is no object, hiring the very best in the business is easy as pie. “I cater for a lot of high-profile Hong Kong socialites, business executives and singers. Some are VIP clients from

As the BJP campaign kicks off in Bihar, Bhupendra Yadav, Bihar BJP in-charge, talks to The Indian Express about the party’s position on the LJP, dismisses reports of distrust with JD(U), and insists the party is not following the Maharashtra Model in Bihar

How will the BJP convince voters that the LJP is not working on its behalf to damage JD(U)’s chances in some constituencies?

We have already expelled nine BJP rebel leaders who were contesting (against NDA candidates) on Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) ticket. Also, soon there will be several joint rallies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Besides, leaders from both the parties will campaign together.

But there have been reports about growing distrust between JD(U) and BJP workers on the ground…

We have already sent out a strong message to our workers. We have been working

Online reinvention for &munch has highlighted public appetite for events catering

Torri Donley

Of all the businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the events industry has been one of those hit hardest. 

The thought of having thousands of people crowded into small spaces or singing along to live music feels a million miles away from our current world of social distancing and household bubbles. 

What’s more, these kind of large-scale events are likely to be the last area of society to re-open when the Covid-19 crisis eventually eases. But what do you do if your entire business is based around catering at events?

In the case of Vanessa Gilpin, the 30-year-old director of catering business ‘&munch’, the challenges posed by lockdown didn’t slow down her ambition.

She used the lack of event bookings to dedicate her time to the rebrand of her business (formerly known as strEAT events) and the launch of a new digital platform that will allow people to connect with

The “specific incident” also led to the “first enforcement action” that Suffolk County has taken, Bellone said. The party was held at the Miller Place Inn on Sept. 25, with the first positive case reported on Sept. 30.

On Oct. 10, the catering hall on North County Road was served with a notice of formal violation by the Suffolk County Health Department; the business was asked to respond to several charges for COVID-19 violations.

Torri Donley

While Tesla and other automobile companies have been making strides in autonomous driving, the technology has not really been widespread, mostly because not all of us can afford a self driving car. However, it looks like we won’t have to live long enough to get a taste of this tech. Alphabet-owned Waymo, has announced that it will open access to its self driving ride hailing service to the residents of Phoenix, Arizona.

The company, a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., had been running trials of its self-driving taxi service in the city before COVID-19 struck.

John Krafcik, CEO of Waymo said, “It’s a really, really big deal, we think, for us, and for the world”. Due to the outbreak of the pandemic, Waymo had to pause the trial of its service in Phoenix to around 1,500 Waymo One customers. But now, starting immediately, these customers can continue using the ‘rider only’

In a year of canceled events, what’s a catering company to do? Pivot, with tacos – Food and Dining – Austin 360

Torri Donley

In March, a local catering company called La Pera had 137 employees, some contract or part time, to help them serve food at the kind of parties and events that are a cornerstone of Austin’s social scene. Weddings and anniversaries, product launches, tasting events, conferences, corporate parties.

Seven months into the coronavirus pandemic, they have seven.

“There were days when we needed 75 people on staff, and now maybe we need four,” says co-owner Bethany DiBaggio.

Although she and her partner Rafael Rodriguez hope to eventually hire some of those employees back when Austin’s large-scale events return, a marker of normalcy that could be more than a year away, they aren’t going to sit around and hope the phone rings.

DiBaggio and Rodriguez opened La Pera in 2017 after meeting a few years earlier through the food scene. Rodriguez, a McAllen native whose family is from Guadalajara, had left the
