We do a dish that is cooked right at the dining room table. First, thinly slice flank steak, boneless chicken breast, scallions, nappa, and unsliced peeled shrimp. With an electric frying pan, heat up several cans of chicken broth. When boiling, add thin rice noodles. Then some of each of the chicken, shrimp, beef, and vegetables. Cover until cooked, then serve the first round. Add more broth and do it again. Serve over white rice, we sometimes will add a few raw eggs to poach.

While I cook a lot of Chinese food at home. New Years is always more fun at a good resturant with friends and family. Find a good one that leans towards more authentic dishes. Most will offer a fixed New Years menu sometimes with about 12 courses, served family style one after the other.

If doing this at home. Make multiple dishes. A Soup, Fried appetizer dish, Steamed dumplings, A Sour pickled dish, Braised or Roasted meats, Steamed whole fish, A Stir fry with veggies, Rice, and fruit. Quite an undertaking for the home cook.

every year for the linar new year, we do a dumpling festival, where we ask guests to bring a dunping of their choice, or to join us for making Jiaoze or Baozi. Always great fun.
