Chef Philippe Orrico has made his way to Hong Kong after years of training in Europe. Although a country with a bad memory for him, he has decided to start afresh in Hong Kong with his newly opened bistro, Upper. He gained his first Michelin star for French restaurant, St George, but was left traumatised with the star removed from him. Till today, Chef Orrico was not given a satisfied and adequate explanation for the removal of the Michelin star, but what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. He has since picked himself up and is enjoying the joy of cooking more than ever. Being able to cook in a more relaxed and less restricted manner, Chef Orrico is able to take out more time to create new dishes for his menu every three days.
