The Taste of Old Hong Kong

Reminiscences and recipes of favourite international and regional dishes from households, fancy restaurants and back lanes which you can enjoy today in Hong Kong, that classy old gal who will forever reign as the Queen of Cuisine for all who knew her when she was the jewel of the British Empire. Bestselling author Fred Schneiter shares a nostalgic romp back into that earlier era which has faded into treasured memories and photos. But we didnt lose it all. The tantalising cuisines and tempting cookpot scents of that earlier time remain. Many of them await you here. If you have ever daydreamed about what it might be like to drop back into an earlier, less hurried time in an exotic corner of the world, this is how we found the food, the friends and the fun in old Hong Kong. Features 70 recipes.

"Spirit of place meets spirits and plaice, and squid and cold melon soup and a great deal more if you are looking for a book that captures the tastes and smells of the East, this is it. A truly lovely book." Jonathan Chamberlain, author of "King Hui: The Man Who Owned All the Opium in Hong Kong" "Schneiter delightfully puts food exactly where it should be: on the table, to be shared, as a way of meeting and connecting with people. But his chatty recipes also show how there can be joy in the cooking, not only in the eating. -- Annabel Jackson, author of "Taste of Macau"
