Happy Chinese New Year

18 February 2007 is the start of the Chinese Year of the Golden Pig or more formally the year of DingHai

The pig symbolizes prosperity and good fortune

The festival celebrates the earth coming back to life when ploughing and sowing can begin, so food plays an important part. Much of the food consumed for the festival has symbolic meaning.

Enjoy the recipe below ..... it is easier than it looks (or reads)!!!

Thought for the day:

What thou youth gave love and roses,
Age still leaves us friends and wine.
