Ah Ma’s founder, Anita Cheung, has been featured alongside more than 100 of the UK’s top chefs and food writers in the new charity cookbook ‘These Delicious Things’. The book features nostalgic recipes from Raymond Blanc, Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver as well as our very own Anita, whose entry is a regular at the family dinner table – nourishing Cantonese-style chicken soup. Scroll down to find the recipe!
All profits from the book’s sales will be donated to Magic Breakfast, a charity that feeds breakfasts to disadvantaged kids in the UK so that they are not too hungry to learn in school. Each book sold will unlock up to 18 nutritious breakfasts for children who might otherwise start their day too hungry to learn, and would make an ideal Christmas present for a special someone.
Alongside Anita’s delicious Cantonese Healing Chicken Soup, ‘These Delicious Things’ has a recipe for everyone, with well-loved favourites and new, exciting recipes. The book is now available in all major bookstores.
We’re delighted to be included in Olive magazine’s pick of top UK street food stalls this month. It’s great to see a good proportion of traders from the South West in the line up too, which is a testament to our vibrant corner of the UK. Back in May we did an interview with Olive magazine while they were soaking up the vibes at Bristol Food Connections. Hear Anita talking about dense clouds, Bristol street food and her work schedule in Episode 2 – Sarnies, Spiralizing and Street Food of the Olive magazine podcasts.
We’re just totally delighted that we can bring to you a small sampling of what growing up with real homemade Cantonese food was like. No MSG, no gloop, no bright artificial colourings, just fresh, simple ingredients balanced delicately to let the produce do the talking. And there’s certainly more to come!
In the new year we’ll have made our move into a brand spanking new kitchen to base dumpling HQ. Watch this space for developments!
It’s been a busy few months at Ah-Ma’s HQ, not least because we’ve expanded our regular markets to include a monthly trip to the Frome Independent, a market that takes over the whole of Frome town centre with over a 100 stalls showcasing local designers alongside vintage, flea and of course local producers and street food. Sunday 6th December will be the last date before March 2016, so be sure to check it out to support the rich, diverse community of local makers and producers.
With all the busy-ness we’ve also not had a chance to write about another mention we’ve had for the unadulterated tasty food we produce, this time by Culture Trip no less, in another Best Street Food in Bristol line up. We’re delighted to be up there with fellow Bristol Eats members Gopal’s Curry Shack and Viet Vite. As well as the regular Temple Quay markets on Thursdays watch this space for a final Bristol Eats street food night before Christmas.
