hosted by Two Hungry Girls Supperclub
What would Chairman Mao and his dignitaries have eaten for a Chinese New Year Feast? THG start 2013 with a colourful history of some Chinese favourites whilst ushering in the Lunar New Year of the Snake. We will also regale stories of why Mao himself loved slow-braised pork, how some dishes are named after Chinese political officials and of course why particular dishes are eaten during the most auspicious time in the Chinese calendar.
As usual we reserve the right to surprise and delight you on the day, but you can expect:
"Abundance" Ceviche Fish, Fresh Vegetable & Pomelo Salad with a Plum Sauce
Deep Fried Vermicelli Wrapped Fish
"Gold Ingot" Dumplings in Chilli Oil Dressing
Salted Egg Yolk King Prawns
Seasonal Braised Green Vegetables with Garlic
Chairman Mao's Red Slow-Braised Pork Belly
Gong Bao Chicken in a Yam Basket
A Surprise Dessert fit for a Culinary Revolution!
This is a Bring Your Own Booze Event. We are happy to advise on any wine and beverage pairings suitable with Chinese cuisine. As it's a Chinese New Year theme, feel free to wear Red, the most "lucky" colour for the occasion!
