with Executive Chef Cheung Wing Keung from Shang Palace Restaurant
Rice wine is a rich-flavored liquid that is made from fermented glutinous rice or millet. For many years, the best and most famous rice wines have come from Shaoxing in the Zheijang Province in China. The wine usually is stored for 10 years or more, and is used for both drinking and cooking. For cooking, the wine should have an alcohol content of 17.5 per cent.
