In-person or Zoom Class: Chinese New Year of the Tiger with Chef Devon Sanner
February 9, 2022 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Wednesday, February 9, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM. In-person or Zoom Class: Chinese New Year of the Tiger with Chef Devon Sanner. In-person cost: $75.00 each. Zoom cost: $40.00 per household.
Let’s go roaring into the Year of the Tiger with Chef Devon Sanner in a fun hands-on or Zoom cook along class making three authentic dishes – Duck Spring Rolls, Yusheng/Lo Hei Toss Salad and Crispy Cantonese Pork Belly. The message for 2022 is: 虎虎生威: Wishing you fullness of the vigor and vitality of the tiger.
Spring rolls are a popular new year dish – they represent gold bars symbolizing wealth and are eaten around the world, especially in regions south of the Yangtze River.
Yusheng/Lo Hei, a prosperity salad, started in the Chinese communities in Malaysia and Singapore. Once the dish is ready, everyone joins in to toss the Yusheng/Lo Hei in the air with their chopsticks!
Crispy Cantonese Pork Belly is enjoyed throughout Asia during the holidays but especially for the new year. Many Chinese restaurants and vendors offer the dish during this time, often hanging the pork out near the window for people to see.
