Royal China Club Triumphs at Championship of Chinese Cuisine
In celebration of their success at The World Championship of Chinese Cuisine, Royal China Club will be launching a new menu that features some of the championship dishes.
In the competition which recently took place in Rotterdam, Royal China Club triumphed by winning four gold medals, two silver medals and one silver cup medal.
The dishes that gained them gold medals at the awards included: a Cooled gammon cube with caviar; an exquisite Seafood platter with oriental platter; a Phoenix pastry mixed bean roll; and a Poached pear in Chinese rice wine. The latter is a prime example of how Royal China Club fuses cuisines, taking inspiration from French cuisine but adapting it to complement traditional Chinese ingredients.
Royal China Club was the only restaurant to represent the UK in the championship, competing against Michelin-starred chefs from around the globe. The competition occurs once every four years and is deemed the ‘Olympics of Chinese Cooking’.
This is the first time the competition has been held outside of Asia, as Europe is becoming highly recognised for the quality of its Chinese cuisine. It is an honour for chefs across the world to even compete, as it is such a prestigious event.
Royal China Club had the epic task of creating seven portions of unique eight dishes. They also had to source their own ingredients locally in Rotterdam.
Royal China Club gained acclaim both in terms of individual chefs, and collectively as a team. They were judged on a number of different areas including presentation, knife skills, taste and team work.
Based in prime areas of London, the Royal China restaurants are centrally located on Baker Street, as well as in Bayswater, Fulham, Harrow-on-the-Hill and Canary Wharf.
The Royal China Club is the premium restaurant within the group, offering a premium experience. While it is the smaller of the two restaurants on Baker Street, its intimate setting gives it an exclusive and elegant ambience.
