3 Chinese recipes | February fashion buys | Stainless steel kitchenware | Peptide haircare


Celebrate the lunar new year this week with these 3 delicious Chinese recipes

As we look ahead to the lunar new year (10 Feb), many of us may be searching for traditional ways to mark the occasion. In Chinese cultures, food plays an important role in ringing in the new year with particular dishes and food items symbolising a range of elements – from strength to an abundance of wealth.

And in her new cookbook, Simply Chinese Feasts: Tasty Recipes For Friends And Family, TV presenter and author Suzie Lee is inviting readers to take a seat at her table to explore the "myriad Chinese celebrations, festivals and traditions, all of which centre around food and family". Among the recipes, Lee has included several dishes that are central to the lunar new year. From chow mein to spring rolls, these are three of the best recipes to try for the occasion.
