Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone is a comprehensive 352-page hardcover tome that explores the city we all know and love through its rich culinary and cultural traditions.
The 14 chapters cover everything from traditional local medicine, to dim sum, to wet markets. Interviews with fascinating local figures (think noodle makers, ceramic bowl artisans and dried seafood sellers), simple, classic Cantonese recipes and handy Cantonese foodie translations are just some of the highlights. We love the clear, crisp, evocative photography most of all.
With a release date of late October 2016, Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone is priced at $360 a copy. It will be available for purchase at select bookshops around town and online at Man Mo Media’s website – click here for more information.
