TRAVELLERS CAN discover Hong Kong’s diverse gastronomy and nightlife offerings during a month-long gourmet extravaganza.

The program is headlined by the large-scale outdoor culinary event, Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, which returns to Victoria Harbour after a five-year hiatus.

The four-day festival takes place from October 26-29 at the Central Harbourfront Event Space.

This year’s edition will boast nearly 300 booths showcasing global food and wine offerings, as well as a suite of interactive workshops for food lovers of all ages. Eligible overseas visitors will also receive a free cocktail on arrival. 

Wine will naturally be a focus of the festival, with the popular Major Country Pavilions showcasing makers from 36 countries around the world.

The spotlight this year will be on the classic vintages from France and Italy and emerging wine regions from Thailand, Moldova and Finland.

In a Festival first, a dedicated display for Chinese Wine Discovery is being introduced, featuring wine merchants including Xige Estate and Chateau Mihope from Ningxia (Northwest China), Yunnan Red Wine & Spirits, and Shandong-based Mystic Island Winery.

The four-day event will allow visitors to indulge in a diverse array of global flavours in a single visit, with dishes ranging from punchy, flavour-filled street food and nostalgic local favourites to refined hotel delicacies by vendors including The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong. 

New to the festival is Tasting Theatre, where several hands-on workshops will be on offer for visitors of all ages feeling inspired to roll up their sleeves and don an apron, with insightful and engaging sessions including ‘Plant to Plate’, ‘Origin of the Coffee Bean’ and ‘The Story of Rice’.

Cooking demonstrations and workshops will be led by celebrity chef He Jiansheng from Shunde, Guangdong and award-winning Taiwanese baker Wu Pao-chun, who will join the festival for the first time.

The festival will serve as a launching pad for a month of culinary celebrations taking place around Hong Kong.

Throughout November, Taste Around Town will highlight more than 300 destinations to eat and drink, with a month-long program of exclusive discounts, limited-time menus and more that will reinforce Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s great dining cities.
