There's richness in tradition, and mastery in interpretation. Susur Lee invites you to Chinese food the way it was meant to be: so tasty you'll want to share. Luckee's Nouvelle Chinoise cuisine features classic dishes and dim sum from the culinary traditions of Guangzhou, Hunan, Shanghai and Szechuan regions, updated and enhanced by Chef Lee's delectable signature. Luckee for all of us.
From inauspicious beginnings as a 16-year-old apprentice at Hong Kong's elegant Peninsula Hotel to his Atlas stride atop the fickle universe of celebrity chefdom, Susur Lee has never deviated from a consuming passion: to create tantalizing dishes that blend textures and flavors in glorious harmony. Balancing the epicurean traditions of China with the classical techniques of French cuisine, Chef Lee improvises a daring and original culinary aesthetic.
Praised as one of the “Ten Chefs of the Millennium” in 2000 by Food & Wine magazine, Susur Lee is still at the top of his game.
Between helming two restaurants in Toronto and overseeing his prestigious Club Chinois in Singapore, Chef Lee makes numerous television appearances and travels the globe as guest chef and consultant. He recently became a media sensation on the Food Network's Top Chef Master, where he vanquished 20 competing chefs and crossed filleting knives with Marcus Samuelsson in a kitchen showdown.
He currently appears as a judge on the Food Network's hit show, Chopped Canada.
Inspired by his travels throughout Asia, notably Guangdong, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore, Luckee Restaurant and Bar, Chef Lee’s much-anticipated new dining experience in Toronto's SoHo Metropolitan Hotel, puts a deliciously modern spin on traditional dim sum.
