The Tastes Of Taiwan Buffet collaboration marks Chef Alan’s first international showcase since his appointment as President of Taiwan Chef Association in early 2023, and it is truly an honour for Chef Leon and his Culinary Team to work alongside Chef Alan to showcase his culinary expertise beyond the borders of Taiwan.

His experience includes serving as a culinary consultant at prestigious five-star establishments, holding executive chef positions at renowned hotels, judging at culinary competitions on a global scale, and teaching at esteemed Taiwanese universities. Currently, he oversees the Ministry of Taiwan’s Labour Skills Certification in Western Cooking, holds the position of Associate Chairperson of Jinwen University of Science and Technology in the Department of Food & Beverage, and serves as a Worldchefs Certified Continental Judge.
