Don’t care to cook a Christmas meal? Is everything closed during Hanukkah? Just order Chinese! Most Canadians have several days off in December and spend time with family and friends but, for some, time off during the holiday season is a luxury. Restaurants across the country are scrambling to crank out Canadian Chinese comfort food to satisfy the seasonal crowd. #CBCShortDocs #Sweet&SourChristmas • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • A Sweet & Sour Christmas is the story behind a family-run Chinese restaurant spreading their deep-fried holiday cheer and even taking a bit of time during the seasonal rush for their own holiday celebration. This is a portrait of the Ho family, who operate King Wok Restaurant in Kitchener Ontario. Through them, we see the bittersweet balance of business and life through two types of meals. One, the deep-fried take-out Chinese Canadian food staples delivered to families across the city. And the other, a traditional Cantonese meal for the entire family as they come together for a rare celebration on Christmas Night.
