Spicy and Sour  

Unlike the animal, the human being eat not only to sustain their lives but also to satisfy their palate. We are interested in different types of tastes and try to make a perfect match of them in our meals. Hot pepper was originally grown in South America. It was imported into China near the end of the Ming Dynasty. Despite its relatively short history in Chinese culinary development, its importance is significant. The central and western provinces of Hunan, Guizhou and Sichuan are famous for their spicy dishes. In Sichuan, for example, chilli is used in almost every dish. It is so common that whenever people talk about Sichuanese cooking, they know there must be pepper. Shanxi, another province in central China, is famous for its vinegar-making industry. Most people in the province are fond of the sour-tasting liquid. Particularly, Huairen Village in Yuci has earned the reputation of The First Vinegar Village in China . The some 400 households in the village are all making vinegar. The sour-tasting liquid is an integral part of their life. Taste is not a by-product. It is part of our life.

Southern and Northern Noodle

As regards noodle, what comes into Hong Kong people s mind is the 3-minute instant noodle or the raw noodle for shrimp Won Ton (dumpling). To people in the south, noodle is a choice other than rice when a person has no appetite or wants a change of appetite. But to people in the north, it s their staple. The best noodle in China can be found in Shanxi. In this episode, the presenter will take us to various noodle shops in Shanxi to see how noodle makers display a mastery of the skill. The great variety of noodle in Shanxi is mainly attributable to its abundant supply of crop, which provides an excellent ingredient to Shanxi people to make noodle. Less in variety, southern noodle, however, is as good as that of the northern. This episode also features the production of raw noodle and shrimp roe noodle, which are familiar to Hong Kong people. In addition, an analysis is made on Alkaline water , a stuff peculiar to southern noodle.

Taste of Home



Before the dawn of modern technologies, people used salt, sugar, vinegar and wine to preserve the food. The preserved food is not only fresh and tasty. Its unique regional character reminds people of the taste of their homeland s produce. Three people from different places in China cope with their homesickness with preserved food produced in their birthplace. Mrs Wong from Taiwan has her home packed with homemade pickles. Each time she tries the vegetable, she thinks about her own place. Winnie, a Yunnan Province native, has started an eatery specialised in Yunnan-style preserved vegetables and meats. Li Cheungsang, both a painter and a food connoisseur, has not forgottened the taste of Shanghai dishes, though he has left the city for over two decades. Each time he returns to the coastal city, he will bring back some Jinhua Ham to Hong Kong. He has an eye for the product and he is especially interested in the pickled dishes produced in the place. From homemade pickles to world-famous Jinhua Ham, the preserved food symbolises the intelligence of the ancient people in preserving food. It also connects people with their community.
