As Executive Chef/Partner at the critically acclaimed DaiLo and Little DaiLo in Toronto, Nick is renowned for his delicate handling of bold Asian flavours with traditional French techniques. An authority on New Asian Cuisine, he is a sought-after guest speaker, TV personality (including Iron Chef Canada) and culinary pundit.
Having worked at Michelin Star restaurants and owning one of Canada’s top restaurants, Chef Liu has earned numerous awards and accolades for his contributions to the culinary world.
Nick’s philosophy is that thoughtful and high-quality ingredients lead to better lives and more delicious meals. His New Asian Cuisine is predominantly Chinese but it follows the French tradition. At the heart of the menu is a love and respect for the dishes Nick ate growing up as the son of Hakka parents in Canada, but importantly, they are the dishes his ancestors have been eating for hundreds of years. Ancient favourites are augmented by Liu’s signature flair and updated to suit the western palate and the modern demand for local and sustainable ingredients.
