Susur Lee at Bent

About Susur Lee

One could say that the virtuoso Chef Susur Lee was born with a spoon in his mouth -- but it would be a tasting spoon, not a silver one. From humble beginnings as a 16-year-old apprentice at a prestigious Hong Kong hotel to his Atlas stride atop the fickle universe of celebrity chefdom, Susur Lee has never deviated from a consuming passion: to create tantalizing dishes that blend textures and flavours in glorious harmony. Balancing the epicurean traditions of China with the classical techniques of French cuisine, Lee improvises a daring and original culinary aesthetic.
