Hilton has launched the Chinese Chef of the Month in China and Mongolia. Li Xiaopei, the new executive Chef of Chinese cuisine at Lu Yu (Conrad Beijing), along with his talented team, are bringing a new menu to their guests.

Born in Guangzhou, Executive Chef Li Xiaopei was influenced by his grandparents who raised him in the catering industry. It was this experience that influenced the chef’s unique ideas and opinions on the color, aroma, taste and shape of dishes. He feels food is a combination of culture and art. Because of this, Master Li has trained his team to invest a lot of time on the nutritional value of dishes, the coordination of cooking methods and the history of food culture. 

From the careful selection of raw materials, the right mix of ingredients, each detail is well thought out to ensure that every dish is in line with the hotel's high quality standards. The dishes on the menu have been thoroughly refined, discarding unnecessary frills and returning to simplicity. The idea is to truly reflect the charm of classic Cantonese cuisine and provide an unforgettable dining experience for guests.
