The Reunion Dinner of the Chinese New Year, we had it at my brother, TM's house.
It was a potluck dinner and each was to bring just two dishes...but look what a banquet it turned out to be...
Let's start with the poultry
Bai zhan ji (white cut chicken)
My sis-in-law's signature dish. She had the chicken cooked to perfection. A must-have favorite.
Braised chicken with mushrooms. The succulent mushrooms took center stage here.
Sweet and sour prawns
Deluxe fish cake with crab stick and nori
The porky dishes
Another must-have Hakka fare, yong tofu
A cold dish of pork trotters and jelly fish pickles
Broccoli and carrots
All these for fifteen of us... one new year's resolution made less than a month ago thrown out of the window :p.
Once again, have a happy, healthy, harmonious and prosperous year of the Ox.
