“Is it not delightful to have friends coming from distant quarters?” -Confucius
Ringing in 2018 on New Years Day with friends and food on a day too cold to do the Coney Island Polar Bear plunge. This year, I brought Chinatown home. We huddled inside and enjoyed good cheer, music and homemade dim sum.
A lot of prep work done in advance as usual. I cleaned the shrimp, marinated the meat overnight and prepared the homemade dumplings.
Blend your homemade dishes with some pre-made products like steamed pork buns and soup dumplings.
A happy and prosperous 2018! Remember, Chinese New Year 2018 is Friday, February 16th, The Year of the Dog.
