Restaurateur Wilson Kwok (W's Entrecote in Causeway Bay), head of the Hong Kong branch of the Slow Food Movement, is again conducting six-day courses to teach children an appreciation of food. Slow Food is a worldwide movement that started in Italy to preserve regional gastronomic heritage. The Slow Summer food and cooking classes have been organised with the Hong Kong University Department of General Education. The children will learn cooking basics such as how to shape dough, roll sushi and make spring rolls, plus Chinese and western table manners and how to set a table. They will also take field trips to an organic farm, wet market and supermarkets to learn about where their food comes from. The classes take place from 10am to 4pm and children who complete the course receive certificates of achievement. The course costs $1,800 a child and includes daily lunch for the children and lunch for two parents or relatives on graduation day. Classes are limited to 25 students.
