Prepared by Mr. Allen Man (Social Event Committee)


The ‘Ham and Cheese Workshop’, which was jointly organized by HKIE-CVD and The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), was held on 10th January, 2014 at Kyoto Plaza, Causeway Bay. A total of 15 members from the two institutions took part in the event to exchange experiences.


The workshop was divided into two sections: ham testing and cheese tasting. An experienced tutor introduced the manufacture and production processes of ham and cheese, followed by the way to appreciate these delicates. During food tasting, participants tried hams with different aging periods, including 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months, and a variety of cheeses. Native Spanish food, ‘TAPAS’, was served as the main dish during the dinner workshop. The tutor also recommended various types of wines to best complement the selected ham and cheese. All participants enjoyed the moments in the relaxing atmosphere.


The workshop was meaningful in various aspects, that participants were given a chance to learn and appreciate ham and cheese, while providing an enjoyable and relaxing evening for members of HKIE and HKIHT.  Members also expanded their social circles within their professional discipline.


The wonderful night ended with an Agonistic Game. Six winners were rewarded hams and wines as prizes. All participants had a joyful night, and some stayed on to continue the fun. We were certain that through the workshop, professionals broadened and strengthen their industry networking.
