Feeding Hong Kong Chefs in the community: The Cookbook

February 20th, 2014 | Posted by greg in Books | Charity | Daily life...

As Foodie Guide called it, it’s “A Cookbook with Heart” 

At the end of last year, the cookbook was published under the initiative of Feeding Hong Kong charity. Chefs from Hong Kong, including myself, all coming from different horizon are sharing their recipes in the book. The recipes are nutritious and delicious while keeping the cost and the sourcing of the ingredients available to everyone with limited budget. It’s a very meaningful initiative as often the cheapest food stuff are canned food, loaded with preservatives and chemicals. For us, Chefs, when we are asked to showcase a recipe, it’s easy to feature black truffle, caviar and other Matsutake mushrooms, but I definitely challenge anyone reading this to try cooking a dish for 4 people with a HK$40 budget. It has to be delicious, nutritious and as appealing as possible of course! Plus, you need to think that most of these families don’t have oven or other fancy kitchen tools we always take for granted when we are developing recipes…

Feeding Hong Kong even brought the experience further by asking people that aren’t professional cooks to prepare the recipes for the photo shooting of the book! As you can see the result is very attractive!

For the first edition of the book, I shared a recipe for coconut French toast with caramelized pineapple. A sweet dish that can be done for breakfast, or at any time of the day!

The book is distributed to charities free of charge and to the general public for HK$200 – you can support the charity by visiting http://feedinghk.org/chefs-in-the-community
