Healthy Eating through the “24 Solar Terms Cooking Demonstration” in Link's Fresh Markets

The Link is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting cooking programme to promote healthy eating according to the Chinese climate calendar traditions. Celebrity chef Ricky Cheung has been invited to design a series of healthy fusion dishes based on the 24 Chinese solar terms which alleviate the discomfort caused by the change of weather in the four seasons – reducing humidity in Spring, relieving heat in Summer, soothing dehydration in Autumn and keeping warm in Winter.

The Link’s Market Service Ambassadors will host the “24 Solar Terms Cooking Demonstration” series in the Lok Fu, Tai Yuen and H.A.N.D.S fresh markets. Using fresh ingredients provided by the market stalls to create the dishes, a range of delicacies and cooking tips will be shared with customers. Shoppers and cooking fans alike can join and taste the dishes for free on designated Saturday afternoons from May 2015 to April 2016.

The Link Market Service Ambassador Training Programme

The Market Service Ambassadors of Lok Fu, Tai Yuen and H.A.N.D.S markets provide professional and attentive services, including customers’ enquiry assistance and sharing updated grocery prices and cooking tips with shoppers. To encourage our Ambassadors to improve their skills even more, The Link introduced a series of training courses from April this year. In addtion to learning cooking tips from chef Ricky Cheung, they train in self-grooming and communication skills, coached by industry professionals. As hosts of the “24 Solar Terms Cooking Demonstrations”, they will personally interact with customers and tenants, bringing our shopping malls even closer to  the local community’s lifestyle.
