Don't take the bait - there's really nothing fishy about this dish

What fish? There is no fish in this dish - obviously, or it wouldn't be called vegetarian.

You might be wondering, then, why does the word 'fish' even feature in the recipe name? Well, perhaps you should take that up with the restaurant chain that provided this recipe - Kung Tak Lam Shanghai Vegetarian Cuisine.

Central heating

Although I dislike cold weather, I love winter food - game meats, slow-cooked casseroles, braised dishes and rich, warm desserts. These two Chinese dishes are perfect to serve at this time of year.

Corrections & clarifications

In the story headlined 'Red tape, faults blight arts centre' on City page 1 on Saturday, curator Andrew Lam Hon-kin was quoted as having ruled out the idea of a poon choi feast. The idea was actually banned by the management of the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre. The error was introduced in the editing process.

Family fare

First-time restaurateur Wendy Cheung Wing-yan and two partners are striving to preserve one of Hong Kong's ethnic cuisines. Their restaurant, Hakka Ye Ye, pays homage to Cheung's heritage: its name is a tribute to her grandfather, whom she says once owned a Hakka restaurant in Kowloon City.

Hut stuff

Lovers of Hakka food know the best place to indulge their habit in Causeway Bay is Chuen Cheung Kui, opposite Lee Theatre Plaza. It is famous for fabulous food and cheap prices ... and infamous for gruff, impatient waiters, non-existent decor and a no-booking policy, which means long waits during peak hours.

Cha choi

The Sichuan preserved mustard vegetable known as cha choi is not pretty - it's a mis-shappen, khaki lump covered with reddish-orange chilli paste. The flavour, however, is mouthwatering - spicy, salty and sour with a crisp texture.
