*Online* Cooking Demonstration: A Family Chinese New Year — the Traditional Cantonese Way
About this Workshop
Join Eddy Ng and his daughter, Vanessa, as they welcome you to their family home for Chinese New Year. As immigrants from Hong Kong, Eddy and his wife Sophia came to Vancouver in the late 1960s and started their family in Canada. Vanessa, their daughter, is first-generation Chinese-Canadian and together, they’ll share with you the history of Chinese New Year, present a traditional Cantonese-style dinner, and demonstrate how to make two traditional dishes: spring roll, and BBQ pork. Both dishes hold cultural significance for the new year, but are crowd-pleasing favourites year round.
In this workshop, you will receive the recipes for these two featured dishes in the demonstration, learn the meanings behind these culinary traditions for Chinese New Year, and follow along on how to assemble spring rolls. The provided recipe for the spring rolls is vegetarian. The BBQ pork requires an overnight marination, so not all of the steps will be presented during the workshop. The goal, however, is to demonstrate the process for both dishes so you, too, can enjoy these traditional Cantonese dishes in your own home.
