Meet Victoria Li!

Hello everyone, I am Victoria Li, the Honorary President of the Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan. I grew up making Cantonese tong shui, so these desserts are an everyday affair for me. I think making tong shui is a way for me to connect with my roots even though I am not a big fan of sweet desserts. The preparation techniques, the knowledge of mixing and stirring the soups in different temperatures as well as the temperature control form part of my culinary heritage – I value these intangible aspects of dessert-making the most. I look forward to demonstrating my favourite desserts this coming August! See you there!
