The seafood fried rice is mixed with turmeric powder to make fresh yellow flowers as the main dish, and red bell pepper is used to make a sweet red frozen soup that contrasts with the main dish. It is surrounded by yellow flowers and served with fresh and easy-to-eat mussels. Fresh, use green leafy vegetables as garnish and finish.


The dishes try to combine soup and rice into one while also distinguishing them. The tastes not only complement each other, but also bring a fresh visual effect and induce appetite.

story behind


Under the influence of globalization, it is not difficult for people living in Hong Kong to enjoy a leisurely Western-style breakfast as a family in the morning, a simple American fast food in the afternoon, and then gather together to enjoy a Spanish meal in peace in the evening. However, another group of people whose eating difficulties are affected by dysphagia can only eat soft meals that give people the impression of being "pasty" at every meal. When my family gathers to enjoy Korean fried chicken, I am eating rice; when my family enjoys feasts from various countries, the only food I can eat is presented in a single way. This is a comment from a person with dysphagia who used to love food and try new things.


In order to try to add new ideas to the soft meals and keep "trying new things", we specially tried two soft meals, "Spanish Frozen Soup with Seafood Fried Rice" and "Catalan Fruit Panna Cotta Tart", which are easy to make and go well with each other. , trying to break the limitations of meals for people with dysphagia. Eating is not to maintain life, but to enjoy the experience of sight, smell and taste.
