Combining the culinary cultures of Italy and his home city of Hong Kong, chef Ho Lam Shek chooses ravioli because of its similarities with Chinese wonton. While even the distinctive coriander cream sauce has flavour characteristics familiar to Hong Kong cuisine, it is the chef’s childhood memories of dining out and eating homecooked food that gives this dish its inspiration. So although the recipe uses western cooking methods, its strong Chinese flavours come easily to the fore, and are always a reminder of Hong Kong.
