Laurance has a cosmopolitan flair with an eye for art and design including floral arrangements.
"He has always had a gift for clothing and costume design: he took up the art of sewing, and has brought to life many original creations.
"His culinary skills are extensive, and might best be described as “Pan-Asian”. At home in Toronto he is especially known for his authentic Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese/Nyonya) preparations. He hosts gourmet Peranakan in-house dinner parties (Tok Panjang) for friends, and by custom request at his up-scale penthouse in the heart of Toronto."
