Chinese New Year in Beijing

IMG_9783

This is the second Chinese New Year I’ve spent away from home and all the wonderful goodies like pineapple tarts and my mother’s special pumpkin cakes. 3 years ago, I was living in Treviso where there was little to remind me of the lunar new year. IMG_9784 IMG_9785

This year, my Chinese friend invited me to his house to make dumplings and we had a fusion dinner of Singaporean steamboat meets its northern cousin, Chinese hotpot. For the first time, I also learnt how to make dumplings (jiaozi) which are completely different from the Southern equivalent of wantons that I grew up folding and cooking. The later has a thinner yellow skin made of egg and flour.
