The goal of this recipe collection is to help you prepare authentic Chinese festival foods in a regular home kitchen. Once you've planned your menu, use the step-by-step tutorial included with each recipe to prepare your feast. Note that recipes marked "Good for Beginners" are great options for first-time chefs, while those marked "Easy Ingredients" won't require a trip to a Chinese market.

Many Chinese festival foods can perform double duty. A whole white cut chicken, for instance, is a traditional part of a Chinese New Year reunion meal, but also makes an excellent Sunday night dinner. Once you get comfortable, don't hesitate to use this recipe collection year round!
