The Year of The Ox is almost upon us and to celebrate Home Kong Kitchen will be baking and serving cream teas for refugees at Refugee Union in Sai Yin Pun Sat Feb 13 from 2pm! Thanks to Breadline‘s Daisy Tam Diers for arranging this opportunity for us to mark the Lunar New Year in our own little way: the Cornish way! Cream teas have been steeped in Chinese mythology and tradition ever since 400BC when Confucius tried one, overdid the clotted cream and sagely proclaimed, “You are what you… think I’m gonna be sick!” His publicist later shortened the quote to “You are what you think.” Here’s hoping the Year of The Ox will be a lot more creamy and a lot less plaguey for everybody than its Ratty predecessor!
Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Incidentally, we did consider serving cow pies instead of cream teas, but living in such close proximity to these feral beauties is enough to turn even the most un-woke meat-stinking Gen Xer vegan!
Also, we’ve no idea how to bake cow pies. Is it flour, eggs, bananas?
