A favourite with lovers of Chinese food, braised pork rice is a hallmark Taiwanese delicacy and a must-have for many visitors to the island.

Now it’s also the star of its very own event, with the 2019 Taiwan Braised Pork Rice Festival announced last week.

Unfazed by the encroaching threat of African Swine Flu, the Executive Yuan Council of the Agriculture Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, has successfully safeguarded the quality of Taiwan’spork, allowing visitors, both foreign and domestic, to enjoy the high quality, mouth-watering national dish.

Taiwan Braised Pork Rice Festival originated in 2017, intent on promoting Taiwan’sexcellent pork to the world through this unique delicacy. This year, the outbreak of African Swine Flu so close to Taiwan has severely tested the Inspection and Quarantine Bureau. However, the Bureau persevered, and not only managed to keep Taiwan from being affected, but was also able to successfully achieve Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccination-free status 22 years after the initial outbreak. Through these efforts promulgated by both the government and civilian sectors, the food safety of Taiwan’s pork is assured, and so is braised pork rice, the national dish of Taiwan.

Out of tens of thousands of competitors, this year’s Taiwan Braised Pork Rice Fest will select some of the most distinctive meat s, allowing all visitors to enjoy the traditional braised pork rice with meat sauce lathered generously over the pork and rice. Furthermore, the festival will also offer a variety of novel and innovative delicacies to go with the more traditional choices, inviting all visitors foreign and domestic to explore Taiwan & high-quality pork products.

One of the most popular drinks all around the globe, tea not only delights with its variety of tastes and scents but is also high in antioxidants making it excellent for the health.

What’s more, some teas can be enjoyed in many more ways than by adding boiling water; Ceylon tea, for example, is an excellent ingredient for both savoury and dessert dishes.

To showcase the wonder of its premium-quality Ceylon tea, leading brand Dilmah recently launched its cooking competition, “Dilmah Tea Inspiration for 21th Century”, to search for the best teams of chefs and mixologists whose creativity and masterful cooking techniques intertwined to deliver gourmet renditions. The contest is being held on August 22 and 23 at a variety of venues across the world.

“We want to introduce and cultivate a new tradition among Thai people that tea can be an integral part of everyone’s everyday life. It can be enjoyed as cold and hot beverages, cocktails and savoury dishes as well as desserts. That’s why we are organising this new competition that invites new chefs and mixologists to showcase their talents in designing dishes and beverages inspired by our Ceylon tea,” says TasaneeAsawagovitwong, general manager and founder of Global Premium Wine, the official importer of Dilmah Tea in Thailand.

Founded by 1988, Dilmah is a Sri Lankan brand of tea whose founder, Merrill J Fernando is known today as the world’s most experienced teamaker Fresh and free of contamination, Dilmah tea prides itself for its unique and authentic tastes and is grown and harvested in its very own plantations.

Renowned mixologist, Tomek Malek, the fourth winner of World Champion Flair Bartender, makes tea a distinctive ingredient in his specially invented drink. “Creating a new drink with tea as main ingredient is just like an art of interweaving flavors. Tea can play a principle role in cocktails, mocktails and shooters. Bringing together all these different tastes and flavors is no different from creating a work of art. Incorporating tea in a drink requires the skills and creativity and a mixologist needs to have a great understanding of the characteristics of each type of tea because each has its own idiosyncratic flavor and smell. Tea adds an interesting and exciting flair to a drink, especially the Ceylon Tea because it has such as unique, full flavor,” he explains.

Malek’s Black tea with Lychee Ice Cream Soda, combines 25 ml of lychee Dilmah tea, 120 ml. sparkling water, and two scoops of vanilla ice cream. He starts by filling half a glass with ice, pours the black tea and sparkling water in and mixes them together before placing the vanilla ice cream on top and finishing with another layer of sparkling water. Decorate with any toppings that complement the flavours.

Australian chef Peter Kuruvita, Dilmah’s brand ambassador describes the brand’s high quality Ceylon tea as a full of incredible health benefits. “It’s rich in antioxidants, can reduce cholesterol and keep you physically healthy. For that reason, we use it as a cooking ingredient and thanks to the amazing arrays of tastes and smells, new dishes and tastes can be created. Dishes include a wholesome tea soup and vegetable set, tea spaghetti that’s rich in nutrients, super delicious tea dipping sauce, and such desserts as crepe cake with tea filling and tea Creme brulee.”

For this special project, Kuruvita has created a dish called Dilmah Exceptional Rose with French Vanilla Pannacotta. To make it, just prepare 375 ml of cream, 375 ml. of milk one vanilla bean, 115 g of castor sugar, 4 g of gelatin, and Dilmah’s Exceptional Rose with French Vanilla Tea. Start by mixing the cream and milk together. Scrape vanilla seeds from the bean into a pan, following by the Dilmah’s Exceptional Rose with French Vanilla Tea and the earlier mixed liquid ingredients. Let everything boil at medium heat for 10 minutes. Take the vanilla bean out, add the sugar and keep the ingredients on low heat for another 5 minutes until the sugar is nicely melted. Add the dissolved gelatin to the ingredients. Pour the mixture into the serving glasses and decorate.

Mahidol University has signed a research and development pact with Charoen Pokphand Foods (CPF) to explore health-food innovations that respond to the needs of consumers of all ages for sustainable health of all Thais.

Suvatna Chulavatnatol, dean of Mahidol University’s Faculty of Pharmacy, said the R&D agreement built upon the two organisations’ joint health-food innovation is marked as an innovative food project for society.

Through cooperation with CPF, the university aims to create health foods for a better quality of life and sustainable social development with its accumulated knowledge, Suvatna said. A network to explore health food will also be established, to add value to products and boost economic growth in support of the government’s policy to achieve Thailand 4.0 through public-private cooperation.

Meanwhile, pharmaceutical knowledge will be applied in the development of food technology, paving the way for the development of nutraceuticals and the improvement of Thailand’s research capability and university-level education in the long term.

CPF executive vice president Sommai Tachasirinugune said the company has a strong commitment towards food R&D, under the “Sustainable Kitchen of the World” vision. CPF’s Food Research and Development Centre has collaborated with universities across the world on comprehensive research on nutraceuticals, to introduce food and beverages that address the changing demographics and the food industry’s demand as well as ensure good nutrition for consumers of all ages, Sommai said.

The company aims to support CPF’s social responsibility and sustainability goals that specify the need to boost its health food ratio by more than 30 per cent of the company’s new product development within 2020, in line with the United Nations’ health food development goal for the sustainability of all people’s health, Sommai added.

‘Taste of New Zealand’ campaign to showcase food and beverages

By The Nation117 Viewed

New Zealand’s Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters last weekend launched a year-long food and beverage campaign, ‘Taste of New Zealand’, as part of an ongoing effort to further strengthen trade ties between New Zealand and Thailand.

“Thailand is one of our oldest and most important partners in the Asean region [and] we’re dedicated to expanding our relationship in many areas,” said New Zealand’s Ambassador to Thailand, Taha Macpherson.

“Exports between our two countries have grown by almost 150 per cent since we signed our bilateral Free Trade Agreement in 2005, making Thailand our eighth largest trading partner.”

The total export value of New Zealand food and beverage goods to Thailand in 2018 was 615 million New Zealand dollars (Bt12.5 billion).

“Food and beverages play an important part of our trade relationship, and we are dedicated to extending our collaboration in this sector in the future,” said Macpherson, adding that the embassy was delighted that the country’s deputy prime minister could participate in the campaign launch.

Spearheaded by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, the Taste of New Zealand campaign will build on existing food and beverage partnerships and will introduce more Thais to the diverse range of products from New Zealand. Thai shoppers will have the opportunity to experience the diversity of New Zealand’s food offerings at Taste of New Zealand events being held at Central Food Hall and Tesco Lotus.

Research by global market research firm Mintel found that quality and convenience are the top two deciding factors for everyday purchases among Thai shoppers. New Zealand Trade Commissioner to Thailand, Ryan Freer, said that country’s companies are looking to new opportunities in Thailand created by these changing tastes.

“We’ve seen growing demand for food that fits the lifestyles of busy, urban Thai consumers. We know consumers are paying more attention to what they consume, with an increasing focus on food and drinks that will help them lead a healthier lifestyle.,” said Freer.

“Research shows that almost 79 per cent of Thais are trying to achieve a healthier diet. Our New Zealand food producers are focused on creating safe, high-quality products, which also deliver better nutrition and great taste.”

Food and beverage exports to Thailand grew from Bt9.8 billion in 2013 to Bt12.5 billion in 2018. Dairy products (Bt8.3 billion) and fresh produce (Bt1.4 billion) are some of the largest contributors to Thailand’s retail sector.

Leading restaurant operator Mango Tree Restaurants Worldwide has joined up with a prestigious Asian design studio in creating a stunning new look for its popular Thai restaurant in Hong Kong.

Mango Tree Elements, which is located in the fashionable Elements mall in Tsim Sha Tsui overlooking Victoria Harbour, has undergone an impressive makeover inspired by the ancient city of Ayutthaya, a former capital of the Siamese Kingdom.

The project was overseen by Mai Chongchaiyo, director of design at Steve Leung Hospitality, the award-winning company that has worked on numerous high-end hospitality, retail and residential projects all across Asia. A Thai national with a degree in Interior Architecture from Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University, Mai was the perfect person to bring Thai heritage to Hong Kong’s harbourfront.

His interiors blend contemporary and classical elements, including extensive use of bare timber, exposed brick walls and other traditional materials, set against a backdrop of monochrome images depicting the temples of Ayutthaya, a Unesco World Heritage site. Flowing through the design is the symbol of the mango, including playful silhouettes of mango flowers, leaves and fruits on the walls and woven into the Thai silk furnishings. Combined with the wooden beams and pillars, this evokes a feeling of dining under a canopy of mango trees in an ancient landscape.

Mai explained that he wanted his design concept to take diners on journey through the restaurant, from the main entrance through to the panoramic windows that gaze out over the harbour.

“We wanted to define a stronger individuality for each restaurant zone. The entrance is distinguished by a facade crafted with a characteristic Thai wood and bricked wall, the adjacent dining area is defined by vibrant and colourful floral patterns, leading towards the dramatic feel of the sea-view dining area. The lighting has been also thoughtfully arranged to bring the different areas to life. I drew inspiration from the ancient city of Ayutthaya, rethinking Thai classic architectural elements in a contemporary approach. The strong sense of Thai authenticity is integrated with a younger and more energetic vibe, creating a timeless yet edgy ambience,” he said.

Opened in 2013, Mango Tree Elements has been extremely well received by local diners, who have a deep appreciation of Thai cuisine. The restaurant is overseen by executive chef Anunte Sae-ung, one of Mango Tree’s most highly respected chefs, who has more than 30 years’ experience in five-star hotels and restaurants. Following its recent makeover, this landmark restaurant is all set to delight a new generation of guests and create memorable dining experiences for many years to come.

“We are delighted with the results of the renovation of Mango Tree Elements. With its waterfront setting, this was one of the jewels in our crown and now, thanks to the vision of Khun Mai and the team at Steve Leung Hospitality, this outstanding restaurant will retain its position as one of the city’s most exciting dining destinations. We look forward to introducing diners in Hong Kong to fresh and authentic, yet modern and creative Thai cuisine in this stunning setting,” said Trevor MacKenzie, global managing director of Mango Tree Restaurants Worldwide.

Mango Tree Worldwide is currently undergoing a period of expansion, with the aim of increasing its global collection of restaurants from 70 outlets today to more than 100 locations worldwide by 2025.

Gone are the days when consumers viewed ice cream as just a summer treat. Today it is regarded and a sweet indulgence that can be enjoyed all year round. Latest research from market intelligence agency Mintel shows that more than half urban Chinese respondents eat it to treat or indulge themselves.

The research reveals that ice cream shops in China grew 14 per cent to reach an estimated RMB41 billion (Bt138.5 billion) in retail sales value in 2018. What’s more, Mintel predicts the Chinese ice cream shops market to grow further at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 11.9 per cent to reach RMB71 billion in the five years to 2023.

Despite this growth, ice cream has the lowest penetration rate among Chinese respondents when compared with Chinese and Western desserts with 22 per cent of Chinese respondents not eating ice cream in the last 12 months, while just 12 per cent have not had Western desserts and a mere 8 per cent have not had Chinese desserts. Moreover, over a tenth of Chinese respondents say they are heavy users of Chinese and Western desserts, respectively, while just 3 per cent are heavy users of ice cream.

Meanwhile, the overall dessert shops market in China grew 12.9 per cent in 2018, reaching RMB228 billion in value, slower than the category’s 18.5 per cent growth in 2017. Mintel forecasts that the Chinese dessert shop market will grow at a 10.8 per cent CAGR in the next five years, to reach RMB379 billion in 2023.

“The growth we’re seeing in China’s ice cream shop market is driven by changes in consumption habits. Today’s consumers no longer see ice cream as only a summer treat, but as a dessert or snack that can be eaten all year long. Instead of having ice cream to cool down, consumers are eating it to indulge and treat themselves. In addition, ice cream brands are altering their business strategies to encourage more sales, from targeting younger consumers to introducing low-calorie ice cream. That said, Western and Chinese desserts are still more popular among Chinese consumers. In this light, ice cream stores should add more variations to their mix, like adding Western desserts, to encourage consumers to visit,” said Belle Wang, Associate Food and Drink Analyst for Mintel China Reports.

“On the whole, the overall dessert shop market in China will continue to be impacted by other types of businesses in the food-service market, like coffee houses and tea shops. These companies are leveraging their advantages, including the fact that tea shop and coffee drinks pair well with dessert – thereby encouraging them to introduce desserts to their menus.”

To compete with other food-service businesses, dessert shops in China should focus on after-meal occasions and develop more after-meal desserts. According to Mintel research, half of the respondents who consume desserts say that they have desserts after meals. Moreover, females are more likely than males to have desserts, particularly those in the younger generation.

Of all respondents who have desserts after a meal, as many as three in five say they have desserts after having meals in order to try new flavours and to treat themselves.

Eating desserts is often associated with being unhealthy; to mitigate this worry, dessert shops can look into developing healthier options, not least because 61 per cent of dessert consumers in China are willing to pay more for desserts that are all-natural or free-from additives, while more than 54% per cent would be happy to pay more for desserts that are high in nutrition.

Finally, almost two-thirds of dessert consumers are interested in trying ice cream that incorporates seasonal fruits such as pomegranate or grapefruit, and 56 per cent are keen on trying cake desserts with seasonal fruits.

“The use of natural ingredients is becoming more and more important in the food and drink industry overall, including the indulgent dessert category. In fact, our research shows that consumers are willing to pay more for options with natural ingredients. With health and wellness mainstreaming in urban China today, dessert shop brands can look into using more natural ingredients like seasonal fruits and superfoods. As well, they can consider developing more offerings that are high in protein, or even probiotics seeing as Chinese consumers like having desserts after their meals,” Wang said.
