Stephanie's passion for food and cooking roots from childhood memories of dinners at home with her late grandmother and extended family.

After spending nine years as a banker at HSBC, Stephanie decided in 2015 to follow her heart in chasing her culinary dream. She received her Culinary Arts Diploma from world renowned Michelin starred Chef Alain Ducasse then worked in Michelin starred restaurants, Hostellerie de Plaisance in Saint Emilion, France and Amber, Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong before starting Roots in 2018.

Roots is a cosy French-Cantonese bistro on Sun Street, a quaint part of the Wanchai Star Street neighbourhood. The bistro is playful in creating dishes that are approachble with refined execution, whilst blending influences from the East and the West.
