Macau, June 7, 2016 – Wynn Macau’s signature Tan cuisine restaurant Golden Flower has been awarded with the “Best F&B in Macau” accolade at the recent 2016 Hurun Presidential Awards Ceremony held in Shanghai. Golden Flower was the only hotel restaurant in Macau recognized in the category.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious Hurun Presidential award for the second consecutive year. The award is testament to the Golden Flower team’s commitment to excellence and their desire to provide an exceptional dining experience for our guests,” said Olivier Bonard, Vice President F&B at Wynn Macau. He added, “It is also very gratifying to have our culinary efforts recognized in the China market.”
In addition to the most recent accolade, Golden Flower is also a two Michelin-starred and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant. Under the helm Master Chef Liu Guo Zhu, who worked for more than a decade in the same kitchen as a chef from the original Tan household, the restaurant shines. Master Liu, who heads Golden Flower and oversees Wynn Macau’s entire Chinese kitchen operations, was discovered during Wynn Macau’s exhaustive two-year search for China’s best Mainland Chinese chefs.
Weaved throughout the restaurant’s interior, menu, and ambiance is the spirit of Tan Cuisine’s inventor, Tan Zongjun, a Qing Dynasty official from Canton who took up residence in Beijing, where he discovered Lu (Shandong) cuisine. During his time in Beijing, he developed a school of cuisine that blended the best of China’s north and south, now recognized as one of northern China’s top culinary traditions, Tan cuisine.
