One of the oldest culinary techniques in the Chinese kitchen. Food is cooked in hot steam; hence there is little contact between the food and water. Steaming imparts a moist texture to food, retaining the meat juices and most of the food nutrients in dishes. With steaming, food is seldom burnt or becomes dry.

In this class, Chef David shall focus on:

1. Traditional Cantonese Steamed Fish

2. Zhejiang Pan-fried Steamed Fish

3. Braised Pork Belly with Yam

4. Steamed Pig’s Liver in Superior Stock


Deep-frying is where food is cooked by submerging in boiling fat. Due to the high temperature and high heat conduction, the food is sealed and cooked quickly.

There are basically 3 different methods:

1. Direct Deep-frying

2. Frying in Low Heat

3. Deep-frying in Batter

In this segment, Chef David will be covering 3 highly sought after recipes that uses the method of deep frying:-
