大家好! (dai ga hou)

A typical Cantonese meal eaten at home consists of soup as a starter, a meat dish, a fish dish, a vegetable dish and rice. The freshness and quality of ingredients were paramount. It is not unusual for women to buy everything fresh daily. Women would go to the morning market and buy the best cut of meat from the butcher, tender green vegetables picked fresh from the field, and fish still swimming in the tank.

When:  Thursday, March 23rd, starting at 9.30am till about 1.00pm thereabouts

Where:  Julie’s home in Heidelberg (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  Our soup-of-the-day is West Lake beef soup, named for its appearance which resembles the waters of the famous West Lake in Hangzhou.  As it is still rather cold in March, Julie will show us how to cook claypot rice with mushrooms and pok choy, a typical Cantonese dish for winter months.  A Cantonese meal will not be complete without fish, simply steamed to bring out its natural flavour.  At the end of the meal, we can look forward to some “Ma Lai Goh”, a spongy steamed cake popular in Hong Kong.

There is space for 8 participants.  The session is now full, and the waiting list is open.

多謝! (dòjeh)
