Food for Thought: Want to learn more about Hong Kong’s fascinating food scene? Check out “Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone”, a 348-page coffee table book published by our parent company Man Mo Media.

From profiles with traditional food artisans to classic Hong Kong-style recipes and Cantonese translations for key terms (complete with an innovative pronunciation guide that matches each Cantonese tone to a musical note on the classical major scale), this book is jam-packed with information, stories, and beautiful photos to go along.
