When you have cooked for Joan Collins, Sylvester Stallone, Roger Moore and Gabriel Byrne, there isn't much more you can add to your credentials, but coming up with new dishes is second nature for Tim Powell. As the executive chef of the newly opened restaurant, Avenue, in the Holiday Inn Golden Mile in Tsim Sha Tsui, Tim has been tantalising tastebuds with his 'simple, natural cooking'. Before coming to Hong Kong Tim worked at the Canteen in London, owned by Michael Caine. He also helped the actor open his latest restaurant, the South Beach Brassiere in Miami. So what is Caine's taste in food like? 'Michael likes to cook at home himself and he doesn't like complicated food. He likes to keep his dishes simple with only three to four ingredients without anything to complicate the natural flavours. Roger Moore likes liver, bacon and mash potatoes, while Joan Collins 'favours salads with lemon, no dressing'. Tim says the Harilela clan, who lured him to Hong Kong, came to eat four times in the Canteen in two weeks before they approached him. For a chef who 'cooks with my mouth and then with my eyes' he certainly has made an impression.
