Prior to his position as General Manager of Intercontinental Shanghai Wonderland, General Manager Yao held senior management positions in resorts and hotels in many countries and regions, including Hong Kong, Indonesia, Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia and Macau. In 1978, he started his hotel career at the Four Seasons Hotel Des Bergues in Geneva Switzerland. His first job was as a Chef Apprentice. After three years of hard work, he not only obtained the chef qualification certificate, but also gradually completed the transformation from a chef to a hotel manager.
With a passion for the chef profession, General Manager Yao is also passionate about hotel catering. He brings his boundless creativity to the management of the hotel, guiding the Executive chef and staff to present a feast for the taste buds of the diners. He also has his own unique views on catering. He believes that cooking should show more pure and essential natural taste. Chefs should not only show their exquisite cooking skills, but also make food with their heart.
General Manager Yao urged the chefs to keep learning, strengthen the innovation and research and development of dishes, to find new vitality of different cuisines. Reminiscent of the popular Cha Chaan Teng dim sum, he brought the most common Hong Kong tea house favorites such as Beef Fried Noodle, Hong Kong style milk tea, Western Toast and pineapple buns to the hotel's breakfast buffet. The modern origin all-day buffet breakfast and classic Hong Kong dim sum combine to create a restaurant atmosphere full of fireworks. You can sit in front of the floor-to-ceiling window and enjoy the food and the view of the lake, cliff and waterfall.
General Manager Yao said, "I look forward to using my passion and creativity to bring more delicious dishes to the hotel's guests." Under the leadership of General Manager Yao, the Intercontinental Shanghai Wonderland will also bring high quality classic and seasonal favorites to food lovers with boundless inspiration and passion.
