Celebrate the year of the Dragon with Chinese Roast Chicken, Baby Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce and Rice with Almonds.


Chinese Symbol for the
Year of the Dragon

         January 23rd is the start of Year of the Dragon, which, according to the Chinese Zodiac, is an extremely auspicious sign. Coming along once every twelve years, it is the ultimate symbol signifying success and happiness.  And if that isn’t a reason to celebrate its arrival, I don’t know what is.  In China, it is a 15-day celebration, the longest of any in the Chinese calendar.  The entire country goes on holiday at least part of the time. Everyone tries to return to their villages and the trains, buses and planes are unbelievably packed with people.
