Listen to this: Bruce is talking with Sue in a busy café close to the heart of Beijing’s international food district about her passion for great food.
Sue Zhou has a growing reputation among food fans in Beijing – people who appreciate the growth of creative and unique cuisine within the Capital.
Sue was born and grew up as a young child in Wenzhou before her family moved to Holland where they opened a restaurant serving a combination of Chinese and Indonesian food. For historic reasons Holland has a large Indonesian population. As Sue explains, the country’s Chinese restaurants have the reputation of creating the World’s largest spring rolls!
Sue naturally grew up in the catering world and coming back to China has continued to develop her culinary skills with great passion. She is often seen at public events such as the Hutong Fayres and the recent Craft Beer Festival. She works with The Hutong as a cookery instructor on Chinese regional cuisine, particularly from Yunnan. She has also led some of their culinary tours to that exotic and culturally rich province. Recently she jointly opened a restaurant at Zhonggulou specialising in Hani ethnic cuisine from Yunnan’s Honghe Prefecture.
苏在餐饮世界长大，因此回国后自然而然地以极大地热情投入到厨艺中去。她经常出入公共活动例如Hutong Fayres 和最近的手工啤酒节。她是“胡同”的中国美食讲师，尤其专注于云南的地方菜。她也会寓教于乐地带着他们的烹饪团去那些异域风情浓厚也富含文化底蕴的省份。最近，她和别人合伙在钟鼓楼附近开了家餐厅，专门研究云南红河区域哈尼族的菜肴。
