Get ready to eat, drink and be inspired by all things gourmet and culinary! The brand-new series SUPPER CLUB follows bad boy “Demon Chef” Alvin Leung — proprietor of the Michelin three-star Bo Innovation restaurant in Hong Kong — as he visits some of the most exciting restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area. More than just a showcase for seriously delectable cuisine, SUPPER CLUB explores the importance of ingredients, craft and personal vision across the evolving restaurant industry.
Leung first speaks with RN74 chef Michael Mina about their shared love for trans-cultural flavors; he then visits Ken Tominaga at his Rohnert Park restaurant, Hana, to pay tribute to Japanese cuisine’s global influence. Next, Leung explores Asian flavors and innovative techniques with Corey Lee at Benu and drops by Adam Mali’s Mandarin Oriental to appreciate the seasonality and simplicity of good ingredients. Amid candid discussions about working in one of the most dynamic food scenes in the country, Leung and the chefs also prepare dishes that contribute to a wider dialogue about food and culinary culture.
