The Chinese Lunar New Year is a traditional festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. Traditionally, families gather for their joyous family reunion over
a spread of auspicious dishes and desserts. 2021 is the Year of the Ox. Thermomix® – the World’s Smartest Kitchen will brighten your reunion dinner table and delight your family’s taste buds. Pamper your family with a variety of hearty, delicious, and easy-to-prepare New Year recipes. Do you know, there are many popular auspicious delicacies prepared and served to usher in abundance and blessings for the family?
To ring in a prosperous new year, “Yusheng” is a must-have on every Chinese New Year menu. (鱼, yú) in Mandarin has the same pronunciation as “abundance” (余, yú). Yusheng is served as a fun and refreshing starter, delicately plated with fresh sashimi grade fish slices, shredded vegetables, pickles, and sauces that excite our palate. In this CNY collection, “Steamed Fish with Pickled Peppers and Fermented Soy Beans”, is a steamed whole fish with mildly spiced gravy. Chinese families love to serve whole fish during Chinese New Year as it symbolizes the good beginning and ending (有始有终) for the year.
“Drunken Herbal Prawns” is another celebrated dish of joy and happiness that symbolically brings a full year of happiness to you and your loved ones. Prawns are called (虾, har) in Cantonese, which also sounds like happy laughter (哈, ha). The natural sweetness of prawns cooked with an array of herbs, bathed in a fragrant rice wine broth, is an irresistible combination. “Braised Mushrooms, Abalone and Sea Cucumber” is known as the three musketeers of the Chinese New Year, as they symbolize prosperity. These ingredients take on the essence of the braised sauce with an extra hint of saltiness from the ocean signifying a true taste of seafood at its finest. A delicious and easy-to-prepare “Chrysanthemum Tofu Soup” that makes a great presentation, where the silken tofu is finely cut into a flower shape and “blooms” in the warm soup.
Additionally, the “Hakka Yam Abacus” which symbolizes unity and prosperity is a traditional dish of the Hakka dialect people who originated from the China Tai Po district. Traditionally, this dish is tedious to prepare, but with the Thermomix®, preparation is effortless! The tender and juicy “Pineapple Pork Ribs” with that tangy sweet-pineapple-tart taste is truly refreshing. If you and your family are fans of eating rice, then the “Savoury Crab & Chinese Sausage Rice” is simply good with an intensely flavourful and with the naturally fragrant with the sweet and savoury crab meat. “Buddha’s Delight” (Lo Han Zhai) is a popular vegetarian dish. This dish, traditionally consumed by Buddhist monks, has since grown in popularity across the world as a healthy vegetarian dish.
Finish off the dinner with desserts for sweet memories that will linger. Dessert selections such as, “Mala Bak Kwa Sticks”, “German Biscuits”, “Bird’s Nest with American Ginseng and Wolfberries” and “Sugarcane Water Chestnut Drink” are perfect for your guests after the reunion celebratory dinner.
