Time Rewinds at Kwan Cheuk Heen
Time rewinds to the good old days at Harbour Grand Hong Kong. From July to September, Harbour Grand Hong Kong’s Chinese restaurant, Kwan Cheuk Heen, will introduce a collection of sumptuous old Hong Kong dishes that once popular along the fragrant harbour.
The majority of the old Hong Kong dishes require craftsmanship and patience, “Provision in the past was insufficient. Discarded ingredients were pulled together to design new dishes. This common practice reflects the living condition in that era, and I admire people’s creativity,” Chef Ki grinned as he marvelled at how they made good use of leftovers. Admiration on these innovative dishes is now open to the young and the old, bridging the gap between the two generations.
More than 15 good old Hong Kong dishes are ready to serve. The first magic happens to Stir-Fried Fish Maw with Conpoy, Egg and Bean Sprouts. Osmanthus is a costly ingredient in the past and hence not everybody can savour. Talented chefs made do it with fish maw by finely dicing it and frying with eggs and bean sprouts, thus creating the look and feel of this too-far-to-reach ingredient, osmanthus.
Sautéed Vegetables with Mustard Plant, Choi Sum and Chinese Mushrooms is another typical dish of turning wastage into delicacies. The top and bottom of mustard plants and choi sum were usually rejected when cooking for the affluents. The rejected ones were then collected. By simply tying them with chives flowers like bundles of firewood, and the modern addition of premium Chinese mushrooms and carrot sticks, this dish has become a healthy and good-looking choice.
Rich in collagen, fish lips, or more exact, the skin of upper lips and sometimes including nose and eyes, are much lower in price than shark’s fin and yet possess the equally-tempting quality. In the Braised Shark’s Fin Soup with Duck Meat, duck meat, bamboo shoots and Chinese mushrooms are added to enhance the flavour. Smooth texture, exceptional nutrients, plus easiness to prepare, no wonder this soup has been appealing from then till now.
Apart from treasuring the above classics, Chiuchow chefs’ pride “Nine Dishes Set” will be showcased at the same time, a chance to savour signatures that stand through eras.
