During his fleeting culinary stint at Four Seasons Hotel’s Jiang-Nan Chun, Chef Au managed to find time to host a masterclass of his signature dish.

With a smile that never falters, the passionate chef emphasized how we can easily whip this particular seafood delight up at home. His faith in us is flattering, but we’d rather savour the dish from the eight-course dinner menu that fetched a whopping $238 per person.

But hey, don’t let our lack of confidence stop you from being ambitious.


  • 530g Fresh Lobster (One piece)
  • 5g Diced Ball Peppers
