Hong Kong: Food books?

teaforme | | Dec 3, 2008 08:08 AM

Hi everyone,

Just had a quick question for all of you who are based in or know Hong Kong well. It's been ages since I've been there so any advice would be much appreciated.

I'll be going to Hong Kong soon and was hoping to do some book shopping in between meals. I'm trying to learn more about Chinese food, specifically Cantonese food. I'm especially interested in finding books that cover the history and food culture of south China/Hong Kong/Cantonese food, etc. I can read English & Chinese, so language is not an issue.

When I'm in London, UK, I would normally turn to a place like Books for Cooks. Anything on that level, or better in Hong Kong?
