彩蛋杯子蛋糕(有碗家傳菜書中食譜) Easter Egg Cupcakes (Recipe from my Book Rice Bowl Tales)




最難忘的一個復活節我六、七歲那年香港正爆發六七暴動。爸媽為了我們安全,哥哥、我和三弟帶離市區,安頓在較偏僻的鄉下,他帶著四弟每天往返城市、早出晚歸地工作。

The most unforgettable Easter: During the time when I was about 6 or 7 years old, the city of Hong Kong witnessed senses of disruption as the force of the 1967 demonstrations caused chaos among citizens. My parents, concerned for the safety of the family, decided to move out to the country until the worst of the action was over. They needed to return to the city for work every day, so they took my very youngest brother with them, and returned late in the evenings daily.

牛排啤酒派 Steak and Ale Pie


記憶中來英後首次吃到牛排派的滋味和印象至今仍然鮮明,猶如昨天。

My memory and taste of the first steak pie I ever ate in this country is still as clear and vivid to me as if it happened yesterday.

烤司康餅和奶油下午茶 Scones and Cream Tea


我很喜歡為家人或到訪的親友烘蛋糕甜餅作下午茶。多年來,我做過的茶點也不少;有些簡單容易,有些則是頗為複雜和費時。

I love baking different types of cakes for my family and friends whenever we have our afternoon tea. I've made many different types of cake over the years - some simple and straightforward, and some quite complex and time-consuming.

春天不遠了 Spring is Almost Upon Us



過年前蒸了很多糕點,都是為了做給孩子們走時帶回去吃的。發覺自己的行為愈來愈像以前的母親 ...

書的中文版已寫完,英文已翻譯了一半;還有補圖、完成之後的校對等等工作 ... 要做的事情雖仍不少,但是,春天也不遠了!

I've prepared so much New Year food before Chinese New Year, for my children to take back when they leave. I find myself copying the things my mother did subconsciously ...

The Chinese writing of the book is finished, the English translations also half way through; there's still a fair bit of work to do ... at least, spring is almost upon us !
