  • About

This typical Foochow delicacy is called hong jao zi in Mandarin. The rich, red coloured dish is flavoured with thick, aromatic fermented red wine lees, which can be purchased from Chinese stores and some supermarkets. Like Hakka rice wine chicken, this braised dish is commonly prepared for consumption by mothers during the confinement period after childbirth.
