Chinese Food Awards

I've used to live in Beijing and Hong Kong for a couple of years back in the 80s and 90s, and my love affair with Chinese food remains as strong today as it has always been.  So when I got invited to an event promoting Vancouver's Chinese Restaurant awards - there was no saying no.

But here's the problem.  When you cover a food event for television, it's pretty hard to actually sit down and eat with your fellow guests.  Hard as in virtually impossible.  Which made this story a particularly difficult one for me, what with my empty stomach and all.   So don't be fooled by the one shot of me eating a piece of claypot chicken which one one of the categories from the 2009 Awards.  That's all I got, and yes, it was delicious.  And as for the restaurant awards - I'd like to know which restaurants serve up your favourite dishes?  Best Dishes icon_video.gif
