Chinese New Year – February 5th – 19th
Chinese New Year falls on Tuesday 5th Feb this year & marks the start of the ‘Year of the Pig’ according to the Chinese Zodiac. Celebrations run for two weeks until the 19th, giving you the ideal chance to lure customers in during the freezing cold month of February.
Families traditionally swap gifts, share “lucky” red envelopes and most importantly, eat “reunion dinner” with close family and friends. Why not join in with the celebrations and create your very own Chinese-themed menu with traditional dishes like Chinese dumplings, stir-fry chicken, beef, white fish, fresh vegetables and either a hoi-sin, Szechuan or black bean sauce. Flash fry in a hot wok and serve with rice or noodles to create your very own authentic set of dishes. Looking for even more inspiration?
