Amber restaurant at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong has received two Michelin stars for the seventh consecutive year.

Such acclaim could not have been possible without the support of our loyal guests and the high level of professionalism of the entire Amber team.

He further perfected his art under the tutelage of some of the greatest three-star chefs in France, including Pierre Gagnaire, Alain Passard and Guy Savoy. Prior to opening The Landmark Mandarin Oriental in 2005, he worked as Executive Chef at The Royal Palm in Mauritius and The Sandy Lane in Barbados.

Having built his reputation on a solid foundation of traditional French cooking technique, Richard is known for his focus on superior produce and innovative presentation, creating cuisine with a contemporary and light feel. Contributing to the latest honour are his signature creations such as frog legs in crispy kataifi with quatre epices, Nagasaki garlic and Italian parsley sabayon and milk fed veal tenderloin wrapped in black tasmanian winter truffle & lardo cooked in clay, summer vegetables & black truffled potato gnocchi, not to mention the dish of sea urchin in a lobster jell-O with cauliflower, caviar and crispy seaweed waffle.
