Conceived by Vicky Lau, Chef-Proprietor of Tate Dining Room, Poem Patisserie and Butler, Date by Tate is a continuation of her storytelling approach to dining.With a background in Graphic Communications from New York University, Vicky discovered food to be a strong platform for artistic expression and similarly, plates became a canvas for her artistic intuition. With numerous accolades including Asia’s Best Female Chef 2015, Vicky’s redesign of private dining at home is a holistic approach that stems from her roles as a chef, mother and mentor to her team and community.
