Chef Zhang’s formative training was completed at the prominent Hibiscus Restaurant in Chengdu, and here he was recognised as a raw talent. His enticing food facilitated his appointment as head chef in a variety of establishments in both Beijing and Shanghai, before his move to London. Since this time Chef Zhang’s popularity in the city has been firmly established as his culinary skill and mouth-watering dishes have certainly proved their appeal. In 2005, he was the head chef at BarShu Restaurant, combining authenticity with innovation to create an exciting Sichuanese menu. Only three years later, Chef Zhang was awarded the Gold title at the 5th International Competition of Eat East Food in Beijing.
In 2011 Zhang’s achievements were acknowledged further as he was selected to represent the United Kingdom at the Worlds of Flavour Conference, organised by the Culinary Institute of America, where he was asked to showcase the gold standard of Sichuanese food. Later that year he was invited by Fuchsia Dunlop to help prepare her cookbook, ‘Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking’, published in 2012. Chef Zhang’s appointment as the head chef of HuTong in The Shard concluded a year of recognition for his outstanding culinary achievements.
