The Lawn Club invites you to a socially-distanced garden party this summer

Madame Digests – June 2021
Who’s been lucky enough to attend a film screening at The Grounds, Hong Kong socially distanced outdoor cinema, this winter? I had and absolutely loved the experience. If you did too, or were unfortunately not lucky enough to grab a ticket for The Grounds, you’ll be happy to hear that the space just reopened its doors. Bye The Grounds and hello The Lawn Club offering four-person private picket fenced garden pods fitted with extra-large deck chairs. Get your game on with classic garden games such as Petanque, PutterBall, Ladder Ball, Croquet and more. Enjoy live performances and livestreaming of some of the summer most awaiting sporty events including Tennis Grand Slams and European Football Championship. Last but not least, refuel with summer drinks including Peroni and Aperol Spritz and a burger from Shake Shack delivered straight to your pod.
We’d better warn you, tickets are selling fast. We recommend registering to their newsletter to receive an alert every time new tickets go on sale.

KARANA brings a jackfruit-based meat alternative to Hong Kong

Madame Digests – June 2021
The past few years have seen the launch of quite a number of plant-based meat alternatives, most of them coming straight from the US. Singapore-based brand KARANA is now joining the movement with offering Asia’s first whole-plant based meat option. Unlike others, KARANA is minimally processed and uses only four ingredients - young jackfruit, canola oil, sea salt and natural flavours – making it a truly healthy alternative. Being only minimally processed, KARANA offers great flexibility for chefs to season and cook the ingredient as they wish and six restaurants in Hong Kong are already offering KARANA dishes: Chaat at Rosewood Hong Kong, Sip Song, Emerald, Beef & Liberty, Cheung Kung Koon and HOT’N’MEEN (on Deliveroo only).
Tasted and approved by Hong Kong Madame: the Meatless Monday menu at Sip Song, featuring a KARANA vegetarian larb.
Stay tuned as KARANA is planning to launch its retail offer and ready-to-cook dim sum in the second half of 2021.

Nomsoftheday makes snacking healthy and easy to digest with activated nuts

Madame Digests – June 2021
Are you the snacking type? I am! And unlike what people tend to think, snacking can be healthy. I do often feel the need to eat something to keep me going, be it before a gym session or after long hours seating at my computer. Nuts pack with essential nutrients and fatty acids are my go to. But nuts could also prove hard to digest because of the phytic acid they contain and Nomsoftheday’s nuts are prepare in a way that reduces the digestive burden. The result is three refined sugar-free, grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan friendly addictive recipes – Maple Glazed Rosemary Pecans, Spicy Sichuan Cashews, Garlic Lime Almonds – that taste as good as they do good to your body. My fav? The Spicy Sichuan Cashews.
Find them online or at several retailers across Hong Kong.

Step aboard Aqua Luna for an afternoon tea at sea

Madame Digests – June 2021
With international travel still a remote prospect this summer is a great time to make the most of the city with rediscovering Hong Kong from every angle. If you are in for an afternoon cruise in the Victoria Harbour, I recommended booking an Afternoon Tea Cruise on Aqua Luna. Hop aboard one of the last city’s iconic red sail junks and raise a toast with a glass of bubbles before digging in yum cha favourites from Dim Sum Library – the wagyu beef puff is to die for - and sweet treats from Aqua.
