Tammy Ching and Mon­ica Wong Prom­i­nent Chi­nese an­tiques dealer Chris­tian Dey­dier, a for­mer pres­i­dent of the Bi­en­nale des An­ti­quaires, hosted a pri­vate din­ner at the Kee Club for close friends. The din­ner was held in hon­our of Mon­ica Wong, who made the clos­est guess as to the num­ber of an­i­mals de­picted on a rare Hu, a bronze wine ves­sel, un­veiled at a pre­vi­ous din­ner hosted by Dey­dier. The ves­sel, which dates back to the early West­ern Han Dy­nasty, is the only one of its kind known in the world and de­picts ele­phants and camels, which are ex­tremely rare in Chi­nese art. The club’s chef Roland Schuller and Dey­dier, who trained as a chef at The Ritz in Paris, pre­sented an ex­quis­ite menu that in­cluded cas­so­lette de truffes and lièvre à la royale, a dish in­vented for Louis XIV. Guests, who in­cluded Lynn Hsieh, Elisa Barthélémy, Feip­ing Chang and Jen­nifer Zhu Scott, en­joyed a merry evening of great food, wine and con­ver­sa­tion.
