Chinese New Year at The Rivington

by admin

The Chinese Lunar New Year is upon us this week! This Monday starts the Chinese Year of the Monkey and Asians all across the world will celebrate with parades, dances and of course, delicious food. Never ones to pass up on good eating, Americans had adopted this Asian holiday into our mainstream culture and now celebrate in their own ways. While many of us will get some local Chinese take-out and call it a night, for those of you up to a challenge, making your own homemade Chinese feast in your Rivington kitchen is a great way to celebrate.

You probably already have your Chinese favorites, but keep in mind traditional Chinese traditions of shrimp for happiness and joy, noodles for longevity and spring rolls for wealth. Host your own Chinese New Year party and play around with different foods!
