Shaoxing Goji Chicken (花雕杞子雞煲)

by · 6 comments
Traditionally, this Shaoxing Goji Chicken is a claypot dish made in winter days. I reckon this dish can be enjoyed on any days throughout the year. It’s so tasty with splendid aroma, perfectly goes with steamed rice.


I like the colour contrast of this chicken dish. It’s so appealing to the family’s eyes. Once it’s served on our dining table, everyone was eager to dig in and taste.

Steamed Chicken with Sand Ginger Powder (沙薑雞)

by · 44 comments
This steamed chicken with Sand Ginger powder dish is very simple and delicious.  It's a traditional Chinese dish, best served with steamed rice and ginger and scallion dipping.

Simple is the best. You can’t imagine how nice the taste of this steamed chicken was. The chicken meat is so tender and silky smooth, steamed to just cooked. If you like the traditional, popular Chinese steamed chicken (白切雞), you have to try this dish as well, if you haven’t.

Try to use organic or free-range chicken if you can to ensure the best result. Having said that, I used corn-fed chicken this time. So, that’s why my steamed chicken was in bright, lovely yellow colour. The end result remained wonderfully good.

Butter and Jam Cookies

These buttery cookies were dotted and filled with bright red plum jam. The slightly tangy taste of plum jam is just right to balance the no-so-sweet cookies.

I often feel cookies are for festive seasons. Whenever any festive seasons come, especially Christmas, we like to have some and feel the atmosphere.

Beef Short Ribs with Radish

by · 1 comment
This beef short ribs with radish is very delicious, comforting and nourishing. We like it to go with steamed rice. You might like it to go with noodle soup. It’s all up to you.


Radish is used to be very expensive down under here. Recently, there are many beautiful radishes sold at a very cheap price, just under one dollar per kilo. They are young, juicy and sweet.

During Chinese New Year, I definitely go for making radish cake (or making radish cake in Instant Pot) for celebration without any doubts. I often like making many other different savoury dishes with radish throughout the year whenever I can get a beautiful radish for a cheap price.

Ginseng Goji Chicken Soup (Instant Pot + Stove Top Recipe)

by · 3 comments
This Ginseng Goji Chicken Soup (花旗參杞子雞湯) is one of my favourite traditional Chinese ones that I enjoyed so much throughout the year. The soup is commonly simmered for long hours to intensify the flavours.


The ginseng has lots of health benefits. Study shows that ginseng can help to boost our immune system and lower blood sugar levels. Ginseng tastes a subtle bitterness, striking a balance of the sweetness of goji berries and candied dates in the soup. After seasoning with a bit of sea salt, this chicken soup tastes so good.

Steamed Tofu with Minced Prawn (蝦膠蒸釀豆腐)

by · 23 comments
Tofu is one of my favourite ingredients in Chinese cooking. Although it’s cheap and common, it could be served in an elegant way to impress my family and friends, just by adding a bit of prawn/shrimp meat paste.

Steamed To Fu with Minced Prawn/Shrimp01

Every time I have this dish, I love taking a close look at the springy prawn ball sitting on top of the silky smooth tofu before taking a big bite. It’s an incredible feeling that you can feel all the flavours bursting out in your mouth at the moment you bite them.
