Year of the Pig “Gung Hay Fat Choy” New Year Potstickers + Chinese Sweet Five-Spice Dipping Sauce + Steamy Ginger Green Tea

We may have celebrated the turning of a new year a few weeks ago, but for much of the world, Lunar New Year is right around the corner.

Preparations for this annual celebration are said to begin on January 28th and will last until New Year’s Eve, February 4th. February 5th is New Year’s Day, and the celebration will last until February 19th. It is a BIG deal for those who celebrate around the world.

What better way to explore than with a platter full of pan-fried potstickers? Dumplings are a sign of good luck and fortune in Chinese culture. Potstickers are unique because of their cooking method: they’re both pan-fried and steamed (first fried til golden brown on one side, then steamed to finish the cooking process). This combo method makes potstickers absolutely delicious.

It took about 5 minutes for our test batch to disappear! Yum. We know our Sticky Fingers Cooking Students will enjoy taking their time preparing these potstickers and that they will disappear into bellies just as quickly!  “Gung Hay Fat Choy" or Happy New Year. Wishing you and your family playfulness and fortune for the year 2019 - both characteristics of the Zodiac Sign of the year: The Pig!

Happy + Healthy Cooking, Chef Erin & Chef Jacqui
