“Gourmet of Fortune for this festive celebration!”
Moon, asked if I am cooking any festive food. Yes, Moon. Here is it. In fact, the idea of creating a category for Festive Gourmet arose, just to house all possible festive food recipes I have cooked or going to cook, for all festive season, e.g. Christmas, Dong Zhi (冬至), CNY, Valentine’s day, and etc. For easy reference. Do check it out (smilling)!
So, here’s a new one for this CNY. Tofu aka bean curd, in Chinese, it’s 豆腐，the word ‘Fu’ (腐) sounds similar to Fortune (福). Hence, eating Tofu (豆腐) during CNY celebration symbolizes possession of fortune (Doufu – 都有福). I added dried scallop in making the gravy. Dried scallop is another staple ingredient you can’t miss in cooking CNY festive food.
