What's This?

Christmas and Hanukkah have past, but there is still another reason to rejoice. 2012 is the Year of the Dragon (along with 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988 and 2000) and it starts on January 23.  It is said that Dragons (much like Daenerys Targaryen) are brave, enterprising, innovative, passionate, self assured and hot tempered.

If you know someone that was born in the Year of the Dragon, or if you just like celebrating, make resos at your favorite Chinese restaurant. Even better, go to the Chinese market and pick up ingredients for the following dishes. Make them at home. You will find that with a little practice you will become a Dragon in the Kitchen.

Pork Dumplings

Chongquing Kai Chai 

Beef pot stickers

Crispy Pork Belly

Dongpo Pork

Baby Bok Choi with Shiitake Sauce

Sweet bean Buns

Jiaozi
