thePatsy Creative Culinary
Inspired by their love of food and appreciation of the culinary arts, Patsy Chang and Janet Lee are the driving forces behind thePatsy, a state-of-the-art kitchen and bakery located in Wong Chuk Hang in southern Hong Kong. thePatsy was built upon the co-owners' passionate belief that good health comes from good food and that it's never too early (or too late) to discover the joy of cooking healthy and delicious meals for yourself and loved ones.
In its 3,500-square-foot space, thePatsy has three fully equipped kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances, a separate studio dedicated to bakery, and a VIP dining room that can accommodate 12 guests. Our culinary workshops give adults a chance to bond over a mutual love of food as they learn new skills to create a three-course meal or specialty dishes. Workshops for children focus on teaching young chefs what goes into the food they eat and having them experience the satisfaction of a home-cooked meal.
thePatsy also has its own bakery that sells artisanal cakes and cupcakes, using only premium imported ingredients and reputable manufacturers of local products. We do not use any preservatives or hydrogenated oils.
Patsy's family hails from Jiangsu in mainland China, but she has spent her life in New York, London, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. A trained dietitian, Patsy entered the hotel catering business in Hong Kong, and her passion for the culinary arts led her to further her education and skills as a sugar artist. Over the years, Patsy has taught both adults and children cooking classes and making cupcakes and cakes, all decorated with her unique flair, for private clients. Opening thePatsy is the realization of her long-cherished dream of sharing her knowledge of nutrition, cooking and baking. She hopes to inspire a new generation of students while promoting good health and good food.
