"Each spoonful of this savoury dish is full of wok hei. It is filled with diced yam, dried cuttlefish, dried shrimp and topped with shredded crabmeat, spring onion and fried shallots. This lifts the humble porridge and makes it taste like a heartwarming superior broth."

HERB CHICKEN WITH ORGANIC PASTA
"I love the al dente pasta tossed in clean-tasting tomato sauce and served with freshly steamed broccoli. The piece de resistance is the pan-fried chicken breast, which is marinated in a herb-infused sauce. It delivers a protein punch that is not heavy. I enjoyed this healthy and well-put-together meal."
