香菇薑絲燴汁蒸魚 Steamed Fish in Braised Shiitake Mushrooms Sauce


In the weekly family meals that I made over the years, I would always include fish at least 3 times a week. I used the simplest  method to cook it, trying hard to retain the unspoiled freshness and flavour of the fish.

自家製營養豆腐花 Homemade Nutritious Soya Milk Jelly


When I was a child, among all the sweet things they sold in the street stalls or little pudding shops, I loved " Tofu fa" - Bean curd custard - the most.  When I grew up and started working, every time  I ate out with friends or colleagues, if the restaurants had got "Tofu fa" on the dessert menu, I would definitely choose it.  After I got married, each time we went back to Hong Kong, I usually sought out a few places which made the best version of my favourite pudding..

自家製芒果酸奶冰淇淋 Homemade Mango Frozen Yogurt Ice-cream

昨天是香港和很多個國家的母親節,身居英國的我們今年在三月已慶祝了這兒的 'Mothering Sunday'。但在香港長大的我,在這一天對母親自是倍覺思念。

Yesterday was Mother's Day in Hong Kong and for a lot of other countries in the world. Here in the UK we already celebrated the Mothering Sunday in March. As I grew up in Hong Kong, this June Mother's Day means a lot more to me, and so on this day I think about and miss my mother a lot more.

蒜蓉辣椒粉烤馬鮫魚 Roasted Mackerel with Garlic and Paprika

Unfortunately with personal experiences from my own family and friends, sometimes such contaminated fish or seafood can be found in bass, mussels, prawns, river cobblers etc., caused or triggered off allergy like reactions, making us violently sick and feeling ill.
