In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Che Family Cooking

Now this is something you can really only get in Hong Kong - Che-style home cooking. It can be mainly summed up with one key word: dumplings.

chicken with chili sauce chicken with chili sauce

cucumber with scrambled egg cucumber with scrambled egg

homemade pork dumplings homemade pork dumplings The main chef in the family is my Aunt Amy, with some help from my grandma (and dare I say a little help from my Aunt Agnes). Now don't let the picture fool you, there seemed to be an infinite number of dumplings. Full plates just kept on coming. Nonstop. And they're soooo good. Skin with perfect texture, delicious filling... better than in any restaurant. This stuff is the real deal; the picture probably doesn't do them justice. The chicken and the cucumber/egg were also tasty as a change of pace from the dumplings. Then again, I could probably just eat dumplings forever. Mmmmmmmmmm.
