Chef Ringo Chan’s history with Four Seasons goes back a long way. He joined the flagship of the Asia Pacific region at the pre-opening in 2005 as Assistant Pastry Chef and brought with him a wealth of knowledge.
He honed the skill of managing large and high quality banquets from his previous tenure at The Regent Hotel Hong Kong, formerly a Four Seasons hotel. Chef Ringo was recruited twice to be part of the team in Hong Kong’s Handover Gala and Millennium Gala, both serving 5,000 guests - a task that required great planning, dedication and hard work.
After joining Four Seasons, Chef Ringo continued to break through and evolve as a treasured member of the Hong Kong National Culinary Team. Competing in what is known as the culinary Olympics, he joined numerous international competitions and scooped countless gold medals on behalf of the hotel and his hometown. Upon the completion of 2013 West Australia Oceanafest in Perth, one of the guests came up to him in tears and expressed that the winning dessert touched his heart dearly. This marked one of the most rewarding moments in Chef Ringo’s career.
Chef Ringo recognizes that nurturing talent is fundamental in providing sublime quality and consistency. He frequents newly opened Four Seasons hotels to share his insights and encourages his team to represent the hotel in competitions - this is the greatest way to influence, motivate and exchange knowledge.
His current role as Pastry Chef primarily inspires and oversees a team of 17, accountable for creating desserts and pastries at The Lounge, Blue Bar, Room Service, Pool Terrace, Executive Club, the Boutique and all banquet events, as well as baking artisanal bread for Caprice and for all outlets in the Hotel.
Out of all dessert creation, Chef Ringo’s passion lies in crafting wedding cakes, something delicate that entails maximum attention to detail and patience to complete. Crafting an ideal wedding cake that reflects what the couple desires brings him a great sense of satisfaction.
