Celebrate Chinese New Year with Dim Sum Family Style
Celebrating Chinese New Year means looking for the best restaurant that serves dumplings or yum cha style food offerings but why opt for eating out when you can celebrate the welcoming of the new lunar year at home, with your family and friends? As the lunar year makes a complete revamp, it is best to say hello by opening your home as the venue to bring luck, prosperity, and joy.
In order to recreate the best Chinese New Year celebration at home, make sure to cleanse first the venue with home sprays bearing quince to attract positive energy and release the old, negative ones. Keep it traditional with bright color of red as the motif and preparing suckling pigs that are crisply made and roasted to perfection. Have sweet candies and sugar-coated fruit preserves to be served during the meal and for kids to munch on.
Here is a list of a few tips on how to make your Chinese New Year festive with Dim Sum.
1) Make easy and yummy Dim Sum by scratch.
While this may sound intimidating especially to those who have no knowledge in how to prepare and cook Dim Sum, there are now easy to make yet authentic tasting Dim Sum recipes available online. Pick dumplings that are easy to do like spring rolls, vegetable dumplings, and fruit pudding.
2) If you have no time, there are several authentic Chinese Dim Sum wholesale suppliers locally.
Just make sure to check if they are indeed making authentic and great tasting variants as there are also several wholesale suppliers that sound too good to be true. Finding a supplier is like hitting the Dim Sum gold mine because not only are they affordable, they also offer the hard to do kind like pork shu mai, sharks fin, and steamed pork buns.
3) While tea is the best accompaniment for Dim Sums, offer other drinks like mimosa and Chinese beer to name a few.
Traditionally, oolong tea is the best yum cha partner for any Dim Sum but as we go towards modern times, Chinese beer and mimosa cocktail are also acceptable.
4) Watch live Chinese New Year fireworks or recreate your own fireworks display at home.
As there are now several places that do live coverage of beautiful Chinese New Year displays complete with dragon dance, you can easily catch it on the television instead of making your house a fire hazard. If you want to have a more traditional celebration, you can choose to get sparklers or snapping firecrackers instead of going all out with the fireworks.
5) Don’t forget to practice “shou sui” or where family members stay awake to wait for the dawn of the new lunar year.
While there are several other Chinese New Year traditions, staying together as a family is the best one there is. Keeping awake together meant you are waiting for luck and prosperity of the new lunar year to cover your family and family’s home. Whatever way you wish to celebrate the welcoming of the new year, it’s best celebrated with the people closest to your hearts.
