Enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine at home
Celebrating Chinese New Year can be just as fun at home, but for an authentic experience, it is one of the Chinese New Year customs to ensure that the house is cleaned from top to bottom. A thorough cleansing of the house will ensure that all bad luck that has gathered in the previous year is removed.
After the cleaning comes the fun part – decorating the house with as much red as possible! The most popular New Year decorations are lanterns, papercutting and a door God.
But, if like us, you like nothing more than to celebrate in style by preparing a delicious dish for family or friends, then why not try our special Chinese recipe – Fried Tofu in Chinese Sesame Soy Sauce.
We’ve also found a great range of Chinese-inspired dishes for you to try including; red cooked marinated tofu, shiitake mushrooms and chestnuts, buddhas stir fry vegetables with marinated tofu and Sichuan-style aubergine with tofu.
