"Healthy Chinese Cuisine Ambassadors" Project - Cooking demonstrations at schools "健康中餐大使" 計劃 - 到學校作健康中餐烹飪示範

dsc05858We visited St Michael's Catholic College on 15 November 2012 and organised a "Chinese Cooking Master Class" to all Food Technology students (year 7 to year 9). After short presentations about British Chinese Food Culture and Introduction to Sauces, students had got some basic background of Chinese cuisine. Then our master chef Andrew Wong taught students how to cook two delicious Chinese cuisines i.e. Broccoli Beef in Oyster Sauce and Black Bean Chicken.

One of the students Natalie wrote her comments on the school's newsletter Issue 03 Jan 2013.

"The dish tasted really great and the aroma smell fantastically nice, it was very mouth-watering. The presentation looked very nice and it seemed really different to what we traditionally eat in England." 

The students enjoyed this special event so much and the students who made the best dish had got a prize, a special apron from our sponsor Lee Kum Kee (Europe) Ltd. The students just love the aprons. At the end, all students left the classroom with tasty Chinese food, gifts packs from Lee Kum Kee (Europe) Ltd. and also big smiles. 

If you are interested in having a Cooking Demonstration at your school, please contact Ms Aubrey Ko at 020 83617161 or by email at 

We will provide a professional Chef who demonstrates how to cook healthy Chinese food to students during Food Technology classes (KS3 & KS4) and cooking demonstration will be arranged according to your school timetable. 

School Visits 探訪學校


We visited local schools to promote our project and educational materials. In July 2012 we were happy to get the support from Tzu Chi College of Technology and visited local schools including St Joseph's Primary School (5 July 2012), St Michael's Catholic College (12 July 2012) and Westminster Academy (13 July 2012). We also held a healthy food event in Ming-Ai on 6 July 2012. All participants were impressed by this project and also enjoyed the vegetarian meal prepared by the students of Tzu Chi College of Technology and volunteers from Tzu Chi Foundation UK.
