chef fires up the ovens every morning. the pork it's cooked at three hundred sixty degrees celsius. the last roasters to roast pigs in wood fired underground barbecue pits are roast pig skin comes out crispy with a deep place for the meat has a hint of smoky taste which you can't experience anywhere else. once the meat is cooked it gets cut up very carefully. when chopping roast meat it's most important to cut it into neat and even cubes. pork is very popular in china and hong kong ten to fourteen pigs are prepared here every day but now in the run up to chinese new year it can be up to one hundred and they're delivered to other restaurants and private customers. but overall meat consumption is on the wane in china too fatty to heavy more and more chinese are adopting healthier diets
but the master roaster has other worries that. young people think this job is too hard also if we go out of business one day they won't be able to find a job anywhere else so young people are not willing to join us. shortly. but for now grill chefs expect people to really dig into pork during the upcoming year of the pig. oh it's yummy the skin is very crispy delicious. and twenty twenty is the year of the rat but it's unlikely that people here will go hog wild for it. oh lots are business update thank you for watching.
