    Hope you are having a wonderful week 😀

  13. Happy Chinese New Year! I have always thought that Chinese (or Japanese) New Year food is something we should adapt here in Europe 😉 The book looks fabulous! Thanks to you some of us might cook a Chinese New Year dish for the first time in their lives…

    • Hi Sissi, it’s absolutely my pleasure to share this old tradition! I’d love to hear some feedback if any of your European friends cooked any of the dishes in this book. Thanks!

  14. Happy early Chinese New Year! My mom is currently celebrating in Taiwan and taunting me with photos… oh what I would give to be at my Grandma’s table for the feast! I should probably cook something up here in celebration, and your recipes are going to be the first line of reference :)

    • Thanks for checking out the cookbook. Happy New Year to you too Irina! Wish you a wonderful year of the horse in London!

  15. Xin Nian Kuai le! Kung hei Fat Choi! I am looking forward to your very delicious e-cookbook to hit my e-mail inbox. What a lovely and thoughtful idea. I can wait to try your version of nian gao with the coconut-yum!. Wishing you a very safe, happy and prosperous new year. I was born in the year of the horse. I was told by a little old Cantonese lady that if I put a half bottle of water under my bed this year I will not have any bad luck. I figured why not give it a try…any truth to this superstition? Take Care, BAM

    • Hi BAM, Xin Nian Kuai le! Kung hei Fat Choi!
      Thanks for your kind wishes!. May you have a prosperous year of the horse too! As for the superstition, I’ll have to verify with some older folks first :)
