Beijing has become a popular spot for foreign chefs to visit and to also feature their creations at many of the city's high-end restaurants. Many foreign chefs have even set up their own restaurants here, hoping to use Beijing's exploding culinary scene to build a reputation. On Thursday night at the Westin Financial Street, however, the emphasis was on culinary exchange and new experiences.

Executive Chef Alberto Fol from La Cusina restaurant at The Westin Europa & Regina celebrated his special week-long Venetian menu with an evening tasting event. "Beijing is like a city of challenges to improve the experience of Italian food," he said.
