To Veg or Not To Veg | 20.03.2012

To Veg or Not To Veg

When you’ve grown up in a meat-and-two-veg kind of family it takes quite a 180 to go beet-and-two-veg – unless you’re captivated by an ethical reason, for example like not wanting innocent animals to suffer, or helping reduce the strain carnivores are putting on the world’s eco-system. Or if, like A...

More-ganic

There’s a lot of organic too-ing and fro-ing these days. Farmers, supermarkets, chefs, consumers – it seems everyone has an opinion on whether organic is worth investing in as a crop, a product, an ingredient or a dish.

Feast or Famine? | 27.07.2011

Feast or Famine?

Food home delivery for anything other than a takeaway is a mission for me.

Kebabs are Healthy! | 19.08.2010

Kebabs are Healthy!

When I’ve had too much to drink I have an automatic brain app that kicks in; the kebab app – or should that be keb-app? It’s not a conscious decision, not many of them are at that time of night (or rather morning). So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that kebabs were part of an innovative...

To Eat or Not To Eat | 21.06.2010

To Eat or Not To Eat

Everyone loves Japanese food. Especially sushi and sashimi. With an emphasis on raw fish, they are a spring clean on a wooden tray — or conveyor belt — the epitome of fresh, beautiful and healthy. Or are they?...

Salad Wars | 19.05.2010

Salad Wars

It seemed like forever that quick and easy, freshly made salads for lunch were hard to find in Hong Kong. Mix was an option, Prêt a Manger did good pre-mades, but finally, like buses, two salad specialists come along at once: Dressed and Just Salad....

Truly Madly Deeply Healthy | 19.04.2010

Truly Madly Deeply Healthy

Life Café is ground zero for organic, vegetarian food in Hong Kong. It's also an unofficial home for Hong Kong's healthinis (or healthini wannabes - i.e. me)......
