Celebrate the Chinese New Year

Collection of chinese new year recipesjump to the recipes

Food is a huge part of the Chinese new year celebration. Many of the foods served are symbolic in some way, often because their name has a double meaning or sounds like another word, or they resemble something else.

Dumplings are very common on this and other Chinese holidays because of their shape. They resemble the Chinese ingot. The dumplings can be filled with a variety of ingredients including pork, chicken, or vegetarian.

Long noodles are another commonly served food. The length of the noodle symbolizes a long life. You want to be careful not to break the noodles when eating them.

Other items you'll often find at a Chinese new year feast include whole fish or chicken, tangerines and oranges, and steamed cakes like rice cakes.
