Great dishes can tantalize your taste buds and warm your heart. The SHKP Club's Loving Home Sweet Heart Kitchen recently organized two cooking class sessions themed 'Three-Low-One-High Nutritious Delicacies' for members and their families to prepare tasty dishes together. Participants made crispy garoupa fillets with asparagus and wolfberry chrysanthemum cakes, a refreshing sweet dish. The classes saw members and their families demonstrated good rapport and harmonious interaction.
Recipes of the two dishes were designed to be low in fat, low in salt, low in sugar and high in fibres. To make it easier for everyone to prepare these healthy delicacies for their loved ones, Royal Park Hotel Executive Chinese Chef Ken Wong gave a demonstration as shown below. Please also refer to the recipes.
