Sweet Rice Dumplings

Tomorrow is the Rice Dumplings Festival, I think I'll just boil up the frozen ones for the occasion. A French guy living in China has a great step by step on his blog of how he made them from scratch.

Don't they just look lovely?

Giant rice dumplings made at a festival in China. Who ended up eating them, I wonder?

Chinese New Year Dinner

My family back home had a feast on New Year's eve, known as Chu Xi, it's the most important night of all during the 15-day-long holiday.

The big get-together took place at a relative's restaurant, that's why you don't see dumplings and other more home-y stuff. Let's see, there were:

Chicken roasted with chestnuts
Sliced meat platter
Bamboo shoot stir-fry
Chinese cabbage
Cheery tomatos (kinda non-traditional)
Meaty dishes in woks
Fish, of course, for its lucky name
