The event, "A Taste & Feel of Hong Kong" was organized by the good folks from Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). They kick started the In Style Hong Kong campaign, a rather large scale one over various countries, to promote and highlight Hong Kong's vibrant and unique lifestyle.

The origins of Hong Kong Cuisine
Dating back to the last century when immigrants, mainly from the province of Canton, they came in droves to the thriving city of Hong Kong to trade with the western merchants. Over generations, this exchange of goods and culture between the East and the West brings forth new cultural identities, the contemporary Hong Kong cuisine of today.
|Introducing the start of the cooking demonstration|
In the next few months, In Style Hong Kong will be running a series of sales promotion, pop-up stores, on-ground promotions and in-store activities highlighting Hong Kong lifestyle elements such as design-led products, trendy fashion and culinary experiences with special offers from selected restaurants. We were at Canton-i that afternoon, where the chef introduced 3 of their dishes.
Double Boiled Honey Fig Soup with Sea Whelk and Pork Lean Meat

Double boiled goodness, I'm in love with this hot bowl of Double Boiled Honey Fig Soup with Sea Whelk and Pork Lean Meat. An excellent source of essential fatty acids, sea whelk and the high protein pork lean meat do provide lots of benefits to the body. By double boiling the soup, the taste of all these exquisite ingredients are released while the nutrients remained locked in. Good stuff!
Slow Cooked Dragon Garoupa Fillet

|We do love our fishes|
This Cantonese delight, the Slow Cooked Dragon Garoupa Fillet is inspired by the Guangdong region of China. Silky smooth and soft in texture, this has to be one of the best way to serve it. Wolfberries were added in by the chef to naturally "sweeten" the dish even more. Tasty, and really healthy, what's not to like? Served with crunchy celery and veggies on the side, it complements the garoupa really well.
Double Boiled Coconut with Natural Peach Resin Soup and Almond

What an interesting dish! Double Boiled Coconut with Natural Peach Resin Soup and Almond, you have that smooth and sweet taste coupled with nourishing peach resin. With hints of coconut in each mouthful, this is one nutritious Hong Kong dish.
