“The homemade rice wine brewed by my grandmother is the delicacy in my memory as a Hakka.”
── Nicole Wong
PMQ Taste Library Guest Chef

Rice wine making is a traditional skill of the Hakka people. The ancients believed that the autumn harvest was the season to produce good wines. From rice selection, soaking, steaming, cooling, sprinkling into the koji, fermentation, filtration, and sterilization, numerous steps are indispensable. In addition to the requirement of patience, it is more like a process of self-talk.

Rice wine has many uses. In addition to being good for health, the Hakka people also use it to entertain guests on festive occasions. The rice wine brewed in a short time has a sweet taste and is suitable for home-cooked dishes, while rice wine brewed for more than 3 months has a strong taste and can be consumed directly.

In the autumn, join us and learn to make rice wine and listen to stories with Nicole. She will also demonstrate rice wine chicken and creative brewing dishes. After class, take the semi-finished products you brewed to home and look forward to the flavor at that moment you open the lid.
