Steamed Chinese feast

All the elements that make up this Chinese feast have been steam cooked in the Miele Steam Oven for professional results. The choy sum greens are vibrant and tender whilst the tofu is soft and silky thanks to the precise temperatures and even bursts of steam from inside the oven cavity
