Our book “Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone” was reviewed in SCMP’s Post Magazine this weekend.
Here is an excerpt, written by food critic Susan Jung:
Anyone who remembers HK Magazine,which ceased publication in October 2016, will recognise Adele Wong’s byline. The former dining columnist writes that this book is a way of reconnecting with her roots, having moved to Canada when she was young, then returning to Hong Kong a decade or so ago.
“These pages in front of you are my attempt at rediscovering a heritage that I hadn’t really lost, but at the same time never had a chance to fully grasp while growing up abroad. And what better way to learn about Hong Kong than through its rich culinary offerings?” she says.
“The story of Hong Kong can be found in humble cha chaan teng restaurants, old-school dim sum houses, colourful wet markets, classic herbal tea shops. It’s told by local butchers, street food hawkers, third-generation noodle-makers continuing their grandparents’ legacy.”
