A decade ago when our owner chef, Sandy Keung, began her chef's journey, geography was not of concern. The goal was simply to cook food that she loves and to create a place where people connect and share experiences. Dishes created are purely reflective of her unique cultural background and authentic to her personal experiences as a typhical Hong Konger.
十年前，當我們的主廚 Sandy Keung 開始她的廚師生涯時，國家或地理料理並不是考慮因素。目標只是烹飪她喜愛的食物菜餚，並創造一個人們交流和分享經驗的地方。十年來所創作的菜餚完全反映了她獨特的文化背景，並真實地反映了她作為典型香港人的個人經歷。
Start of Winter is an important term of the 24 Solar Terms. It is the time for people to supplement and nourish our body. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) believes that the arrival of Winter is when the “yang” energy is hidden, the “yin” energy is in full swing. The activities of all life forms tend to stop or go into hibernation state recharging energy and preparing for the Spring when vitality resumes.
In winter, people's metabolism is relatively slower so we should focus on keeping warm. TCM principles suggests that we nourish our kidneys in winter time. Examples of kidney nourishing food includes mountain yam, black beans, black sesame, chestnut and goji berries.
During Winter, TCM focuses on astringing yin, protecting yang, and nourishing kidney. Black beans, black dates, black rice, black sesame, black fungus, seaweed, kelp and other black foods are the first choice for nourishing kidney in winter. In addition, longan, walnut, almond, chestnut and other nuts are also good choices for nourishing the kidney.
It is also recommended to eat more meat, seafood and dairy that are rich in protein and fat to enhance the body's resistance to the cold. When the weather does become very cold, chili, Szechuan pepper, ginger, scallion and garlic can be appropriately added to the dishes to warm the body.
