The appearance of china Year enables us to begin anewbeginning with clean homes, new clothing, and merely-cut hair. Most significantly, the celebration includes a meal that symbolizes success, best of luck, and lengthy existence for everybody while dining. Each dish, either by looks or even the pronunciation of their name, represents something important: Spring Rolls, deep-fried until golden brown, resemble traditional Chinese gold bars for fortune an entire chicken personifies a phoenixa mystical bird of wealth an entire fish signifies abundance and noodles, due to their length, are eaten for durability.
With the aid of Michael Tong, who owns New York's famous Chinese restaurant Shun Lee Palace, we have produced a make-at-home menu to welcome in 2012. Each dish, with different favorite in the restaurant, continues to be adapted by Tong for that home prepare.
