Frozen dumplings

CJ Mixed Vegetable and Pork Dumplings

The packaging of these Korean dumplings says they will be ready in three minutes, about half the time that the other sampled varieties required, but that's simply because they're roughly half the size. These seem to be filled mostly with pork and tofu and are rather firm. The overpowering taste of pepper, however, is slightly off-putting.

A dynamite restaurant - and that's just the d?cor; the food has got some sharpshooters behind it, too

If you haven't visited the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre in Admiralty, there's now another incentive to check out the former military explosives site.

Why the spice is right for this Caribbean convert

Since Mandy Nathali opened her private kitchen in 2010, Hongkongers have been lining up to sample her authentic Caribbean fare. Ackee and saltfish (a yellow fruit that 'tastes like scrambled eggs', paired with salted cod), jerk chicken, fish and crab curries, among other exotic dishes, are served at her villa overlooking Sai Kung town.

Light meals with healthier rice

Boiled white rice is the mainstay of Asian cuisine. But it's not particularly nutritious. Unmilled rice - such as brown and red varieties - contains more nutrients than polished white rice.

Red and brown rice are also better sources of fibre: 100g of brown rice provides 2.8g of fibre, red rice 2g, and white rice only 0.6g.

Nature of the feast

Hongkongers are eating increasingly lighter, less greasy fare at Lunar New Year. Tradition certainly still plays a big part in the festivities: ingredients such as dried oyster, and black fungus that looks like hair, are still at the heart of the spring celebration.

The first thing that struck me when I started reading Poor Man's Feast (poormansfeast.com) was how well written it is.

Chop tactics work wonders for marriage

These deep-fried hard-boiled eggs topped with a sticky tamarind caramel sauce are a popular Thai dish, and a must for celebrations. The curious name, khai luk koei, or son-in-law eggs, is said to come from a rather unnerving story. Prudes, be warned.
