The celebration of Chinese New Year is an important celebration in our culture. Considered to be equivalent to Christmas traditions.
Most people are more familiar with the entertainment factor of Chinese New Year, which are dragon dances and fireworks. However, there is a deeper meaning in our tradition and this is understood through food. Asian culture involves food greatly, even I growing up in South Africa, never have I met with friends that isn't over food.
To do my part for Chinese New Year, I was referred by a fellow food blogger and friend (www.butterfingers.co.za) to do a food demonstration for CGTN. The dish I chose to make was dumplings, a great recipe that brings family together in joy, stories and laughter.
