My mother and I haven’t lived together for many years now, so I always look forward to her home-cooked meals. They remind me of my childhood, so when we see each other, I always ask her to cook the same few favourites that I grew up on. I never get bored of them.

Every Chinese family has their special recipes and slightly different methods of preparing a particular dish. Dinner table conversations are all about where the ingredients were bought, and how each dish was created. Here are my favourites (click on each for full recipes). Together, they would make a substantial meal, served with steamed white rice. In fact, this would be my perfect home-cooked meal!…

My family and I went to Pearl Liang for dinner a few nights ago. I recently raved about the dim sum there, but of course, dinner is an entirely different matter. I’ve been to restaurants where the dim sum has been amazing, but dinner horrendous. As my family are harsh critics of Chinese restaurant food, having owned restaurants in Germany for the last 30 odd years, I thought they would be able to help me judge the food.

I’ve been eating dim sum regularly ever since I was a child. Cantonese families love to get together for dim sum, particularly at the weekends. I’m quite particular about what I eat, and therefore where I eat, so being a creature of habit, I tend to go to the same dim sum restaurants in London. Although there’s nothing wrong with the places that I eat at, I couldn’t help wondering if there weren’t perhaps other great restaurants just waiting to be discovered. So I set myself the challenge of broadening my gastronomic horizons and eating outside my comfort zone…

Here’s a recipe from my mother for a simple Cantonese dish that transports me right back to my childhood. It was one of three or four dishes served at dinner, along with steamed white rice. She makes different versions of it, sometimes using dried scallops, sometimes dried shrimp, but whatever ingredients she uses, the basic steamed egg is the same – light, healthy and above all, delicious!
