Andrew Wong is an award-winning chef and anthropologist. British born of Chinese heritage, his environment and nurture have had an equal impact. Combined with a strong academic background, the marriage of both has led to a cooking style that has one foot placed firmly in the future and the other inspired by the past. Andrew opened A.Wong in 2012 with his wife Nathalie – the ‘A’ paying homage to his parents Albert and Annie – and the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star in 2017. In 2021 A.Wong was awarded a second Michelin star, the first outside Asia to achieve this honour. He is also a research associate at the School of Oriental & African Studies’ Food Studies Centre in London.
