Lanshu Chen, chef of Le Mo?t restaurant in Taiwan, has been named Veuve Clicquot Asia’s Best Female Chef for 2014. The prestigious award is part of the

Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants programme sponsored by S. Pellegrino & Acqua Panna and organised by William Reed Business Media.

Lanshu will be presented with her award at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony on 24 February 2014 at Capella Hotel, Singapore. The award is voted

for by over 200 industry experts from across all parts of Asia, who are part of the The Diners Club? World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy.

After completing her training at the Ferrandi School of Culinary Arts in Paris, Lanshu honed her craft working alongside some of France’s most celebrated

chefs, including Pierre Herm?, and at Michelin-starred restaurants such as Les Ambassadeurs, Relais d’Auteuil and Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry in

Returning to her native Taiwan, Lanshu opened Le Mo?t in 2008. Located in Taichung city in west Taiwan, Le Mo?t is renowned for its uncompromising

standards and innovative blend of classic and contemporary flavours. Applying the lessons learned from France’s masters of gastronomy, Lanshu has successfully

adapted European concepts for Taiwanese diners.

By combining French culinary traditions with the local influences and ingredients she grew up with, Lanshu reveals both her mastery of authentic French cuisine

and her ability to innovate. Her ever-changing menu is founded on classic cooking styles yet informed by her own heritage, creating a delicate cross-cultural fusion of

flavours and textures.

“This award recognises the commitment, creativity and talent of women in Asia’s restaurant industry and Lanshu Chen is a hugely worthy recipient,” explains Veuve

Clicquot President and CEO Jean Marc Lacave. “Continuing the legacy of Madame Clicquot Ponsardin, Veuve Clicquot represents modernity, perfection and boldness.

Lanshu embodies these values through her flawless presentation, passionate dedication to French culinary practices, and ability to imbue each dish with local

ingredients and Asian influences. Aside from inspiring other female chefs to push creative boundaries, her work is elevating the fine dining experience in Asia.”

Acknowledging the honour, Lanshu notes: “As a chef who strives for perfection, I am truly thrilled to receive the Veuve Clicquot Asia’s Best Female Chef award

from Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. Growing up in Taiwan, food has always been an integral part of my heritage. From an early age I appreciated the pleasures that

derive from preparing and sharing meals. It is a great privilege to have my work recognised by the respected industry experts who make up The World’s 50 Best

Restaurants Academy.”

Clicquot’s attributes of innovation, creativity and determination.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
