Young chef rediscovers local tastes at his own Liberty

Small, exclusive Liberty Private Works and its sister, the upscale gastropub Liberty Exchange, were two of last year's hits with the in-crowd. When the original chef left, the group knew it needed a strong visionary to take the helm. Enter Vicky Cheng, who has been carving out a career in some of North America's most widely acclaimed fine-dining restaurants.

Rude service leaves only bad taste

I walked out of a restaurant last week. This is very unusual for me. I can count on the fingers of one hand the times I've done that, because it usually takes a lot to irritate me.

How would you design a spice rack for a blind person?

Jay Lee Seung-jae, 13, Hong Kong International School

In my opinion, the most important human sense after sight is the sense of smell. The special characteristic of spices is the exquisite scent of each individual spice. So the one way blind people would be able to distinguish one spice from another is by smell.

How tradition can make a meal of feminist ideals

As a young child, the Indian festival of Karva Chauth was something like a competitive sport. After the guilt of watching my mother go without food all day, it became a race against hunger to help her find the moon right after the official moonrise so she could finally break her fast. But on Karva Chauth, the moon had a nasty habit of getting stuck behind a cloud or building.

Signature dish

I spent much of one day last week on a 'food crawl' with food writers visiting from Toronto and New York. Before meeting in real life, they had become acquainted with my friend Janine through her food photos on her Flickr account. I was particularly excited to meet Francis Lam, whose work I had read at the now-defunct Gourmet magazine, then at the website Salon.com.

Don't give in to property developers

As the power of property developers grows, conservation areas in Hong Kong are gradually shrinking. These areas are being turned into profitable sites where luxury homes are built.

There will be serious consequences if the situation worsens; hundreds of species of animals and plants will be in danger.

Forget the fast food, says chef

The food you eat could be killing you. British chef and food advocate Jamie Oliver visited this summer's One Young World summit held in Zurich, in Switzerland, to carry this message to tomorrow's leaders: care about what you eat.

Editor's note

Look around and you'll probably find you're blessed to be surrounded by remarkable women. They include your own mother, whose unconditional love makes all things possible; female colleagues, who remain unfazed in the face of work and family problems; relatives fighting illness; and friends who show everyday courage as they cope with single motherhood.
