‘Piece of Cake’

previouspausenext

This is no ordinary lemon pie, but the ‘CUHK lemon pie’. Its reputation has drawn the attention of travel and foodies websites, which call it a best kept gourmet secret in town. Local and overseas bloggers with a sweet tooth are equally eager to share blog posts and photos of this icy pie, just to tell the world that ‘I’ve successfully tasted the pie again’. In the eyes of its devotees, this little piece of cake is extraordinary. Originating in a university, it is a symbol of youthfulness and the carefree attitude of young students.

For decades, the dessert with an unpretentious appearance has been served at the Choh-Ming Li Basic Medical Sciences Building snack bar at a reasonable price. Its home-made feel wins the hearts of many with a discerning palate, and becomes the shared memory of CUHK members. Will there be a day when the recipe of this cake is added to the UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage? It sounds far-fetched. But, well, who knows?
