Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is China’s most important festival celebrating the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar.
In 2020, Chinese New Year falls on Saturday, January 25, beginning a Year of the Rat. Festivities include putting up decorations, giving gifts, fireworks and eating celebratory food with family. In China, it’s the longest holiday of the year.
An easy dish you can make at home to celebrate Chinese New Year is Egg Drop Soup, a Chinese comfort food. To cook the egg within the soup and create a great consistency, the egg is slowly poured in the broth and allowed to poach as you stir the liquid to mix the egg and ensure it doesn’t form a whole shape. Try it out for yourself as an entrée followed by Chinese Fried Rice with a protein of your choice.
