Details

Poon Choi , also known as pun choi or Big Bowl Feast, is a traditional type of dish originating from Hong Kong village Hakka cuisine. It may also be found in different parts of Hong Kong.

It was said that Poon Choi was invented during the late Song Dynasty. When Mongol troops invaded Song China, the young Emperor fled to the area around Guangdong Province and Hong Kong. To serve the Emperor as well as his army, the locals collected all their best food available, cooked it, and because there were not enough containers, put the resulting dishes in wooden washbasins. In this way, Poon Choi was invented. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bowl_Feast )

Poon Choi becomes a unique dish, which will be served whenever there are rituals, weddings, festivals, ancestor worships happened in the village as a village dining culture. And for most of the Hong Kong people, we’ll have Poon Choi during the New Year!!

And in fact, Poon Choi is a very good dish to pairing with different wines, and you’ll be surprise by it!

對於大部份香港人我相信盆菜已有一定認識,我在此不用多說,但由於盆菜配料種類有很多,包括蘿蔔、枝竹、魷魚、豬皮、冬菇、雞、鯪魚球和炆豬肉,現時不少盆菜更可能包括花膠、大蝦、髮菜、蠔豉、鱔乾等,盆菜實是一道很好的菜式去配對不同葡萄酒來享受,今次我們挑選了三支葡萄酒,和你一同重新品味盆菜宴!
