Feature Food & Beverage 30 JUL-AUG 2018 MEETINGS & CONVENTIONS MCMAG-ASIA.COM T his isn't just any weekend sailing on board World Dream, this is Taste the Dream – Wine and Dine at Sea. Mix meetings and fun on board alongside the emphasis on phenomenal food, or simply let it be the perfect incentive for a top management meeting. This rst weekend, my sailing companions were chefs Alvin Leung and KK Chan. So dierent, and so complementary. The reputation of Chef Leung, Hong Kong's bad boy of gastronomy, is the stu of F&B legend in Hong Kong, while Chef Chan Kwok Keung is a multi-award winner and star chef on the screen. Naturally the big cheeses at World Dream have chosen their chefs for these eight sailings carefully, and this is just the rst. The remaining will star chefs Wan Tat Kong, Vicky Lea, Christian Yang and Martin Yan. "We stand for honouring the traditions of the past and pioneering food into the future," explains Dream Cruises president, Thatcher Brown. "We want to bring chefs who are innovators like Chef Alvin, and dishes with a great story like those created by Chef KK."
