Li will be showcasing his expertise with first-year students on the art and architecture of chocolate by demonstrating how to work with the medium will share his award-winning recipes.
“The architecture of taste is about building with layers and drawing inspiration from different aspects around the world,” said Li. “I draw my inspiration from my surroundings, tradition, landscape, science and technology to create pieces that will excite the senses.”
Students will be working with both familiar and new flavour combinations under Li’s mentorship in order to learn how to create a unique dining experience.
“It isn’t every day that novice chefs get to learn from a culinary great,” said Chef Derek Lawday, Professor in the School of Culinary Arts. “Royce brings years of experience, technique and mastery to the classroom. Our students can’t wait to learn these new skills.”
