Simply Chinese Feasts: Tasty Recipes for Friends and Family (Hardcover)
Growing up, Suzie Lee was extremely fortunate in that her parents carried on the customs and traditions of Hong Kong in their family home in Northern Ireland, and now Suzie wants to do the same. In Simply Chinese Feasts, Suzie Lee pulls the reader up a seat to her table to explore the myriad Chinese celebrations, festivals, and traditions, all of which center around food and family. Ring in Chinese New Year with crescent moon-shaped dumplings (to be eaten during the last hour of the old year and the first hour of the new) and indulge in a fish dish to encourage prosperity. Structured via food group, in each section, Suzie will reveal the traditions, symbolism, and lucky sayings associated with fish, meat, bread, or cakes, before delving into delicious recipes to be shared and celebrated with family and friends. And Suzie will, of course, throw in her famous twists, allowing the reader to tailor recipes to their needs. Looking for kid-, veggie-, budget-friendly, or super quick meals? Look no further!
