Sweet Planet: The integration of transnational culinary cultures


Palmira is the owner of a family-run restaurant in China's Macao Special Administrative Region. The food it serves is a fusion, based on a mixture of spices traditionally used in Portuguese cooking, such as cinnamon and turmeric, with local Macanese ingredients. The restaurant's signature dessert, baked apple, is made using a recipe Palmira inherited from her grandmother. In her story we see how, through her commitment to preserving and passing down her family's cooking traditions, she is helping to preserve Macao's unique cultural identity.

For a taste of something sweet, check out Sweet Planet, co-produced by CGTN and Insight TV, premiering on March 29.
