Authentic Chinese Food Lovers

Issue 25# Feb 29, 2016


How have you been? Anything special in the month of Feb? For us, Feb. 8th was the traditional Chinese New Year, also called the Spring Festival. So you may have noticed it as the celebration happened all over the world. So I am here to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year!

Although this is the biggest Chinese festival but I couldn't get back to China. But I always remember what my mother would make for our new year eve food party. One of her dish is called Chinese Pine Nut fish, which is the deep fried carp fish topped with our homemade tomato sauce. Yum! You will see how she makes this sauce from video link below.

Picks of Feb. 2016

Chinese Pan Fried Fish

This Chinese pan fried fish recipe is adapted from my father's Chinese home cooking for Red Cooked Ji Yu (Carp). Because fish I bought here in the UK is normally boneless, which we cannot cook as the whole fish in China. I made some changes in my father's cooking so now this recipe works for the fish I bought here. I can still keep the fish with taste of our home cooking.

Chinese food made from glutinous rice

During the traditional Chinese New Year, we have lots food made from glutinous rice. The popular ones include the sweet rice ball, rice cake and eight treasure rice pudding.

My mum would definitely make this eight treasure rice dish for our family Chinese New Year food party. The glutinous rice needs to be soaked and cooked first and then mixed with lard and dry fruits before steaming. Click picture to see the details on the site.
