I received an unexpected early Christmas present this week! The South China Morning Post will be publishingTHREEof myhumorous short storiesin the Long Reads section of a festive edition of Post Magazine Dec 5th! 🙌
I originally posted that the stories were inspired by Sharp Pains before remembering that it was actually the other way round! Sharp Painsis back onRTHK Radio 3next Tuesday (Oct 25) with brand new episode,Cats (a yowler!) …
WOW! It’s been 10 MONTHS since Home Kong Kitchen got on a roll and started making serious dough! We’ve spent nearly a year turning our kitchens into mini-Hiroshimas and baking a difference to feed Hong Kong’s homeless! 🇭🇰
Our initiative started as a response to news reports that food waste charities were struggling to feed the homeless during the 3rd Wave of the pandemic. So what started out as the Baker’s Dirty Half Dozen began to bake our own and donate it to Breadline in weekly food drives.
As more and more bighearted Homekongers have rallied to our cause, Home Kong Kitchen has risen. We now bake, collect and deliver homemade breads, bagels and muffins directly to people living on the streets, in unlicensed shelters and refuges most days!
This Easter,Home Kong Kitchen‘s bionic baking community delivered dozens of afternoon teas to homeless shelters and refuges across Hong Kong! Props toAlana Hofor baking the scones, Chriz Lim for the lemon cakes, Raquel Ate for the giant banana cake and our originalBaker’s Dirty Half Dozenfor the hot cross buns! Not forgetting our amazing community of artists @ Mental Ideas for their handcrafted notes and inspiring artwork!
Besides our regular weeklydeliveriesto unlicensed shelters andhomeless charityImpactHK, Home Kong Kitchenis now deliveringfree breakfaststo anybody who needs it anywhere in Hong Kong! If you and your family are struggling to put food on the table, or if you’re from a refuge or shelter that has not yet sampled our baking and would like to, please take a moment toregister!
We have lots ofeventslined up over the summer, including baking workshops in collaboration withBreadline@ Refugee Union, a monthlyPicnic Project, a novelty cookbook and our first Bijou Pâtisserie, where you can order our baking! We can’t promise it will be the best you’ve ever tasted, but we CAN promise that every cent we make is donated directly to homeless charities!
