Life is always better when you are loved. Celebrate it in style on Valentine's Day with special dishes you want to share. Break out the bubbly and nibble on canapés, add some luxury with a fine lobster salad and then spoon up some pretty chocolate mousse and with luck love will always be there.
Chinese New Year feast is all about honouring family and ensuring a prosperous year. Go for noodles, long as you like, so you will have longevity. Stir fry lots of vegetables, including lily buds for harmony and sea moss for prosperity with leafy greens and long beans are served whole, to wish a long life to parents. There must be dumplings, everyone loves dumplings! Try stuffing them with pork and cabbage then dip in black vinegar and soy. Finish with tangerines or oranges and sesame coconut cookies so you may have a sweet life.
