Chinese New Year

A Feast of Tastes and Stories

Chinese New Year – also called Lunar New Year – is instructor Hsiao-Ching Chou’s favorite holiday. It’s a time when family members return home from near and far to celebrate togetherness and renewal, pay respects to the elders, and feast. The Chinese New Year feast consists of many symbolic dishes that represent wealth, good fortune, good luck, longevity, success, and happiness. Chinese New Year starts on January 25, 2020 (New Year’s Eve is January 24). It will be the year of the rat according to the Chinese zodiac. Hsiao-Ching, who is the author Chinese Soul Food cookbook, will share some of the cultural traditions and stories from her family. She will demonstrate several dishes that appear on the holiday table.
