Zong Zi, or glutinous rice dumpling, is a traditional Chinese favourite most commonly made and savoured during the much-celebrated Dragon Boat Festival. Following a centuries-old recipe, these parcels of indulgent and hearty glutinous rice are filled with a variety of ingredients, wrapped in bamboo and lotus leaves and steamed till fragrant and succulent.
And this year, Master Chef Leung Kwai Hong and his team are crafting three signature dumplings for the upcoming Festival. This is where they are preparing 2 types of flavours where one is savoury version and two others would be the sweet version.
