BBC Steph Mak Interview with Lilian

Stephanie Mackentyre popped into our dim sum class yesterday and interviewed us. She was capturing the sounds of the cooking as we fried, steamed and boiled, such an interesting way to present a cookery school experience. There were lots of chatting and cooking. Click here on the recording of the interview.
