YUMMY CREATIVITY – Walking down the busy streets in Hong Kong, you come across many bread and cake shops. From fancy western cute little shops to traditional market style bread and cake shop. These traditional shops are the most interesting to me. It really is all about the food. No fancy wrappings, just plastic bags. Nonetheless, people are lining up. When people are lining up in Hong Kong, you know it is good.

Traditional Cantonese egg tarts are made of puff pastry with silky smooth custard inside. Fresh from the oven egg tarts are irresistible. Believe me, it’s true! The classic afternoon snack accompanied with milk tea. In Hong Kong there are many variations of the egg tart. Starting from the crust, the shell can be made from cookie-dough or puff pastry. Second is the filling: egg white, milk, honey-egg, green-tea-flavoured tarts, chocolate tarts and even bird’s nest tarts.
