The infectiously charismatic Jeremy Pang (Chinese Unchopped) comes back to Bath with a unique new cookbook, Hong Kong Diner. Inspired by an exciting, unconventional place, where western sensibilities and food tastes overlap with an ancient cuisine. The definitive commuter town where long-haul travellers break their flight for a night out, Hong Kong’s cuisine draws on everything from classic Chinese to America’s west coast, through French, Portuguese and British food.
It’s a fast-moving, cosmopolitan culture, a city with countless styles of dining and diverse ingredients. This is comfort food at its finest: beef brisket noodle soup from one café, peanut butter French toast and milk tea from the next, claypot rice, savoury doughnuts, the list goes on. Chef Jeremy Pang grew up with Hong Kong as his second home. This evening will be full of irresistible street food tastes from dumplings, baos, and BBQ snacks, through to hotpots, rice pots, noodles and with a personal insight into the real culinary treasures of the city. Hong Kong Diner explores the east-meets-west diner food crossover of Hong Kong alongside its history and customs, bringing this vibrant food culture to life.
