The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Easter Lunch (and kids' cooking class) @ Bread Street Kitchen, Hong Kong

I hope everyone had a good Easter! We have been back in Hong Kong for a week now, which meant we spent the long weekend here in HK. It would have been nice to spend it in Perth, but hubby had to be back at work last week, and it seemed mean to separate the family over Easter. On Sunday, we had an impromptu lunch at our family fave, Bread Street Kitchen. That hill up D'Aguilar to LKF with a pram is a killer, and those stairs are a little inconvenient with little ones, but we always have an enjoyable meal there. The staff is always warm and welcoming to our noisy bunch of three kids, and I just love the relaxed and cozy atmosphere. I also love the fact that kids get a full 3-course kids' meal for free with every main course ordered, which is such good value. There was a special Easter menu on offer on Sunday, which hubby really wanted to try and it required a minimum of two, so I obliged. When newly-appointed head chef Gareth Packham came over to our table for a quick chat, I was immediately taken by his amicable disposition. During our meal, one of the front desk girls came to ask our older two kids if they wanted to join the second cooking class (we arrived after the first class was already underway), making chocolate chip cookies! A free cooking class? Sure, why not? It was great! The kids had a lot of fun, and Chef Packham even asked one of his assistants to help with my 3-year-old, chasing me away to eat my lunch in peace. This was the first Sunday they held the kids cooking classes, and Chef told us that it will be on every Sundays from now. That is honestly a brilliant idea.

Woodblock Sharing Special with prawn cocktail, pork pie, and wild mushroom and asparagus quiche. Everything was delicious:

The 3-year-old (whose favourite colour is pink!) loved the egg!

Roast lamb and beef and limitless Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and vegetables:

The gravy, mint jelly, and horseradish to go with the roast, and humongous Yorkshire puds! The Yorkshire pudding was a bit crunchy, so it may have been overcooked (to be honest, I am not a good authority on Yorkshire pudding), but the kids loved it all the same:

Making Chocolate Chip Cookies, led by head chef. Check out my cheeky monkeys on the left stealing to eat the ingredients!

We got to enter the kitchen!! I was so happy! Even if it was just to put the cookies into the oven:

I didn't realise it at the time I took the photo, but that cook was preparing my daughter's fish and chips (pretty sure it was hers as it was almost 3pm and most everyone in the restaurant had already eaten):

The kids-size Eton Mess. So good with fresh strawberries and fresh cream and and crunchy meringue:

The Easter special dessert of peanut butter parfait, vanilla panna cotta and passionfruit gel with chocolate ganache.
Such a cute presentation
