Recipe Description:

Sweet & sour isn’t so much a recipe as an entire flavour balance philosophy, rumoured to have originated in the form of a lightly sugared vinegar dipping sauce from Hunan province, China. But the recipe we all know and love, where the sauce is reduced to a sticky glaze in the wok, is Cantonese. Ketchup might seem like an unusual addition, but Hong Kong chefs have been using its tangy umami kick for decades; ‘ketchup’ is in fact a Chinese word. The competition between vinegar’s tang and a more fruity sourness is the heart of the dish, with ketchup uniting both flavours.
