The Dragon is the most auspicious animal in the Chinese zodiac. In Chinese culture, the dragon
represents good luck, strength, health as well as the male element Yang as opposed to the female
Yin element. The dragon is a symbol representing imperial power and authority – particularly the
five-claw dragon which is the symbol for the Emperor or Empress. This menu is composed of a few
dishes from the ten course Lunar New Year feast which we always celebrated at home. The recipes
are passed down from Popo (grandmother), to my mother, and now to me to preserve the tradition.
Each dish represents a symbolic wish for the new year – health, wealth, prosperity, longevity, unity
of family and etc. The menu will be paired with wines especially selected by Cam so that you may
celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year in your home.
