Do we always need proof to tell if something helps?
Huma Quereshi writes very eloquently about her experiences and that of others. We completely agree with her however we would like to add something to it: there is the art of baking it but there is also the art of eating it. We like both in equal measures.

We tried and tested it before and we can definitely say....it is an opportunity not to be missed.
Through Secret Tours Hong Kong, we found out about the ladies of Home Dining HK.
Home Dining HK is a unique home dining experience for local expatriates and overseas visitors. We want to show the non-touristy side of Hong Kong through dining with our families.
Liz was lucky to be be part of the trial dinner. The evening was organised at Mr & Mrs Ho's home in Mei Foo and it was a mix of chit-chat, hands-on cooking and demonstrations of how to make some tradition dishes by the amazing chef Mr Ho!
The evening was a great success: we made pickled ginger, tasted new things like dried oysters and homemade plum wine and heard some amazing stories about Hong Kong. This truly delicious experience won't be forgotten in a long time.
The ladies from Home Dining Hong Kong are planning to set up more of these events. So keep an eye out. To know more about them, please visit their Facebook page.

As per request yesterday at PechaKucha - yes you can still buy Grandma Grandpa Cook.
Grandma Grandpa Cook is a joyful photographic memorial to grandmas and grandpas, and their contribution to the cultural history of food in Hong Kong. Rich with childhood memories, and illustrated with Michael Wolf's photography, the authentic stories of over 40 grandparents tell of love, food, family and society. Alongside the stories, recipes for traditional Cantonese dishes like carrot and green turnip soup, taro in ginger and brown sugar, and sticky rice dumplings, are presented as a gift to future generations, in an optimistic and celebratory book that aims to prove that every dish is a story of life.
Please click here to have a peek into the book.
It is for sale through MCCM Creations. You can buy it online or in their bookshop.
