In 1997, Wilson was knighted by the French Ministry of Agriculture, Fishery & Food as “Chevalier de l’Ordre du Merite Agricole” for his outstanding contribution to French cuisine and wine in his native Hong Kong and China.

Wilson first became interested in food while studying in England and U.S. as food quality in school dormitory was rather appalling, so he started cooking and of course schoolmates and friends gathered to enjoy and to share different recipes.  Wilson recalled relatives always brought delicious and variety of food to family dinners for sampling. This must have developed Wilson’s taste of appetising and quality food.
