Ham Choy!

Think i have become quite nostalgic about food prepared by old people. When i came to think about it, young people like me know little about the preparation of recipes held by old persons. When my aunt came to pass away, i could not help a selfish thought that i would no longer taste such and such delicacies and food. This season is auspicious for the preparation of bottled ham choy and dried ham choy.

imgp0373.jpgThese delicacies take a long time to prepare.Must dry in the sun, salt them, then steam, re dry again for umpteen days until dried. Then store in cool dry place. With the hectic life we are living, even with the knowledge gathered, such recipes will definitely be lost. There is a difference when a mentor is behind you. Even during exams a mentor makes a difference. S/he will correct your mistakes when you made them. So you know when you make them and not redo again.  I am talking about one among the many recipes upheld by old persons which we young people have taken for granted when we were still kids and when our parents were teaching us but too young to remember.

Even then our parents would not let us ‘met la pain a la pate’. We would just stand back and watch as idled spectators.
