Here at Small City we live by the mantra “a little of what you fancy does you good” which is why we’ve chosen Chinese cuisine this week, plus we want to keep the Chinese New Year party going on as long as we can!
I was lucky enough to be in New York during Chinese New Year and I had a fantastic time at their amazing street party celebrations. With Chinese dragons dancing to the drums and a sea of bright colours and smiling faces, it was an absolutely stunning fire cracking party! I've shared some of my snaps from the day in this weeks recipe photo gallery for you all to enjoy.
Chinese food is undoubtedly the world’s favourite cuisine – and certainly ours, so we’ve pulled out this stunning dish from our friend Linda Chan at the Jade Garden to get you in the mood for celebrating the Year of the Rooster.
I couldnt wait to catch up with Linda to photograph (and scoff) some of her delicious, traditional Chinese grub. She served this yummy fillet steak and black bean sauce with tradional New Year decorations. The birds you can see in the pics are turtle doves and represent peace and fidelity.
Not only was the food striking to look at and super tasty it's also suprisingly easy to make. I couldn't believe how 'recipe friendly' this was and it wasn't pots, pans and ingredients overload! So, go on, try this out you'll defo suprise yourself and your guests will be looking for the takeaway tubs in disbelief!
Enjoy & Kung Hei Fat Choy!
