No matter the weather is cold or hot,this classichot and sour soup,originated from Sichuan China,is suitable for every occasion throughout the year.It's tremendously appetising and delicious.No wonder this soup is well-liked and popular around the world.

Hot and Sour Soup01

Every family has their own version around different countries,using different ingredients though.Basically,this hot and sour soup contains wood ear fungus,bamboo shoots and tofu,sometimes pork blood (豬血) is added.Give it a go if you want,or dare,or you can find some pork blood at your local area.

To make this soup is very straightforward and easy.The tricky part of cooking is to get the right consistency with a balance of sourness and saltiness.You can easily turn this soup into a light meal by cooking some white Shanghai noodles to go with it.

Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry (Video)

by ·1 comment
Ever tried adding some crunchy cashews in your stir-fried dishes?I grew up with this traditional stir-fried dish,cashew chicken stir-fry.It's good for a daily meal or even family gatherings.

Cashews will add an interesting texture and make a contrast of the tender chicken meat.You can use any vegetables for the stir-fry instead of using celery.It's very easy to make and flexible for you to add any vegetables you like.

Cashew Chicken Stir Fry01

In traditional Chinese cooking,cashews are often deep-fried in oil in order to make them crunchy.If you have an oven,simply bake them in an oven.Or pan-fry them in a pan without any oil.The result will be equally crunchy,and you can consume less oil.

Cashew Chicken Stir Fry02

As for chicken meat,I like using chicken thigh as the texture is good for stir-frying and the price is cheaper.You can use chicken breast if you want.It won't make any difference in taste.

This homey dish,Stir-fried Prawns with Eggsis very popular in Chinese restaurants.It's so quick and easy to make at home.Best of all,it's absolutely tasty.

Fried Prawns with Eggs01


The prawns/shrimps used must be very fresh.Although I can't find any live prawns here,the frozen,raw ones are still good for making this dish.

This dish is like cooking scrambled eggs with prawns.Both of the smell and taste of the eggs with prawns are so good and tempting.No wonder many Chinese people love this dish.

This dish looks simple and easy to make.But frying smooth and silky eggs needs some practices and experiences.Is there any trick to help?

I grew up with this traditional Chinese dessert,Snow Fungus and Papaya dessert Soup.You still can find it in some Hong Kong dessert restaurants or Chinese Dim Sum restaurants.This dessert dish is very delicious and will bring an amazingly soothing and nourishing effect on our body.


Snow fungus has many different names,like white fungus,silver ear,snow ear or silver ear fungus,雪耳/銀耳 in Chinese.Snow fungus is just like other kinds of edible fungus,tasteless on its own.Its smooth and gelatinous texture after boiled is quite nice though.Snow fungus contains dietary fibre and helps lower cholesterol and keep our skin look younger.

Imitation Shark Fin Soup

by ·27 亚博体育下载comments
Imitation shark fin soupis a very popular snack sold by street hawkers in Hong Kong.Why?Now you can make this delicious street food at home.


In Chinese wedding banquet,guests can enjoy 8 to 10 expensive dishes.It would definitely include a shark fin soup.Not only does this soup take a long time to cook,but also is shark fin tremendously expensive.That's why this soup won't be on a family's daily menu.

Yet many Chinese like this soup very much.

According to Wikipedia in Chinese,many hawkers started selling this soup on street many years ago.Initially they sold genuine shark fin soup in early days as they could buy broken parts of shark fins from restaurants.Then they cooked shark fins with dried black fungus,egg and water chestnut flour.It's widely accepted by Hong Kong people.The soup was sold in little bowls.

So it's called 碗仔翅 in Chinese Cantonese (literally translated into English that is "Shark Fin Soup in Little Bowls").

Nowadays,the hawkers use cellophane noodlesinstead of genuine shark fin simply because no restaurants would do so anymore as the price of shark fins has been growing up.

Thus,Imitation Shark Fin Soup has come into place.People still love this imitated version,as it tastes delicious,not expensive and easy to prepare.

Fish contains high-quality protein and can be easily digested.For making this dish,you can choose any fish fillet you like.It's a dish suitable for your whole family if you have kids or seniors.


I particularly like the fragrance of celery.Celery is very low in calories and contains high fibre.To make stir fry dish,I often remove the tough strings inside to suit my family's taste.Take a look and see how to remove the celery strings in my tutorial video.You might skip this step though.

Celery Fish Stir Fry02


As for fish fillet,it's up to you.Choose any white fish fillet you like or handy to you.I like to sprinkle some Shaoxing wine when stir-frying fish fillet.If you have young kids,you might skip the wine as well.

By using just a wok or fry pan,you can whip up this delicious fish stir fry dish in a few minutes.Remember to serve immediately when it's still hot.

Long Yan and Goji Tea01

Long yan (also known as longan,"gui yuan"桂圓 in Chinese) is a popular tropical fruit.The flesh is very sweet and juicy.I and my family like to eat it fresh,even though it's quite pricey here in Australia.

The dried ones,dark brown in colour,are less expensive,good for making Chinese soups,desserts and teas.

In Chinese medicine,long yan is a natural cure for insomnia.Goji (aka wolfberry,or Goji berries,枸杞 in Chinese) is also found good for eye health,giving your a feeling of calmness and quality of sleep.
