Due to the tragic earthquake a couple weeks ago in my Taiwanese extended family’s hometown of Hualien, we switched locations this year for our Chinese New Year celebration. Smaller place, less cooks in the kitchen, and a smaller number of prepared dishes (it’s usually out of control how much variety there is) but we managed an amazing meal none the less. Aside from the lobster which was a new addition this year, most of this stuff will be familiar to anyone who’s had a traditional New Years dinner.
This dish is definitely the most famous and one that you absolutely can’t go without on New Years, it’s called fó tiào qiáng. Literal translation: Buddha jumps over the wall. It’s a traditional soup with all kinds of mushrooms, roots, seafood, eggs, spices, medicinal things, and yes sometimes a few organs. It’s pretty amazing through, please try it if you ever get a chance.
So from Vanessa and I and all of us here in Taiwan, we wish you a very Happy Chinese New Year! Year of the dog (my cats won’t like that)
新年快樂! (xīn nián kuài lè)
