Chinese New Year

So, as you may have seen on our homepage, Jamie's put together a little collection of his favourite food picks for Chinese New Year, which is this Sunday! http://www.jamieoliver.com/news-and-blo ies-top-5/

How many of you will be celebrating, big or small? Do you have your own dishes you cook to celebrate the occasion?

It's also worth noting that just two days after that it's Shrove Tuesday, and you can bet your bottom dollars I'm going to want your involvement in thoughts and ideas for that. big_smile

Re: Chinese New Year

Love Chinese foods, we make divers dishes all year.
All last week-end we had pork nems (bought) from our favorite Chinese store and vegetable nems (home made). Phở soup home made with fine slices of beef, noodle soup with sliced nems (my favourite) yummy

Tonight we have Phở soup with chicken and beef. Home made spring rolls and
...home made Sushi and Sashimi (Japonese..no matter!!)

Re: Chinese New Year

I always find cooking "Chinese" a right faff.........takes half-a-day to all the chopping/marinating...then you cook it in a wok in 5 minutes flat..eat it and 20 minutes later you are hungry again.....

Then again ..I could get a take-away....sadly, with my Peanut allergy, none of the take-aways/restaurants locally can cope/cater for me...

So I'll be celebrating Chinese new year with a bottle of British beer....

Re: Chinese New Year

Oh thanks!  I hadn't heard that term and when I tried to google it, couldn't get any food results.

Re: Chinese New Year

In the 90's in Kuala Lumpur, my friend's Chinese wife cooked a special meal for Chinese new year. Black chicken and Shao Hsing wine. It was debatable whether to use the wine to disguise the taste of the chicken or vise versa. puke

Re: Chinese New Year

I love Chinese food!

Unfortunately I am still quite chancy making stirfries. Sometimes I make a delicious tasty dish of bright gorgeous flavours. Sometimes I make sog.  sad

At the moment I have a wonderful snack food from a Chinese restaurant that specialises in dumplings. I buy a bag of freshly made, and keep them in the freezer. I usually make potstickers with them, but sometimes I steam them. So wonderful to have them.

Happy Lunar New Year Everyone! It is the year of the Water Snake. I plan to get things done!
