Come join International Education to celebrate Lunar New Year (aka Spring Festival, aka Chinese New Year)! We’ll be having a dumpling tasting, as well as a demonstration of how to make them.Dumplings (饺子 in simplified Chinese, pronounced jiǎozi) are a traditional food to eat on Lunar New Year in northern China. Their shape resembles an ancient Chinese currency, and the fact that they are stuffed with deliciousness suggests a new year full of good fortune. (At least this is what people told me.) In southern China, where I lived, we were always sure to eat rice cakes (年糕, pronounced nián gāo, which are not like cake at all, by the way) and fish during our Lunar New Year dinner, as well as all kinds of seafood. We would usually finish the meal with Longevity Noodles (长寿面, pronounced chángshòu miàn). Long noodles for long life! And remember, if you want to see China for yourself, you have a brilliant opportunity to do it and get paid through the Teach in China program!
