Master Chef Guo has had extensive training at the finest academies and has studied under the elite masters of this era. At the age of 14, Guo Wenjun became the disciple of Master Chef Ding Guangzhou, a seventh generation disciple in the line of royal chefs. Following this, in 1983 he continued his training at the National Youth Chef instructional program. In 1992 he had further training in Hong Kong at the Hong Kong International Haute training program.
After decades of diligent training and hard work, Guo Wenjun not only mastered the Chinese culinary tradition but also has unceasingly researched the culinary techniques of masters around the world, making a path for the fusion of traditional Chinese Culinary arts with that of the rest of the world. With a "Use the excellence and discard the unwanted of the past" modus operandi, Chef Guo is at the forefront of culinary innovation. Chef Guo has created a style of cuisine and follows a culinary presentation philosophy that is revolutionary. Chef Guo has an especially unique take on new school of Cantonese, Hong Kong and Western cuisine, using culinary techniques that the world has yet to see, thus being deemed by the media as the "Pioneer of the New Age of Culinary Arts".
Guo Wenjun has followed in the traditional imperial cooking philosophy of his great master: "A good meal is beneficial, arrangement is paramount, flavor is foremost, nutrition is essential", and has used this traditional philosophy in unison with modern culinary techniques. In blending tradition and innovation he created the Healthy Royal Cuisine Culinary System, displaying to the world the true essence of Chinese cuisine. On numerous occasions Chef Guo served his cuisine to the leaders of nations from around the world with the upmost success, gaining the praise of government officials from across the globe.
Guo Wenjun places the upmost emphasis on tradition and traditional Chinese culinary culture, believing that: "One must master the art of following tradition before one can master innovation". Chef Wenjun therefore is a very strict teacher of his disciples, demanding only perfection in mastering the traditional Chinese culinary arts.
