This was the hardest part! The Peking Duck took three days of various prep! He had to hang for several hours so the skin would tighten for crisp! I didn’t have a hook so…I had to improvise. –_– Wouldn’t it be concerning to see this in someone’s house?

You keep the fish whole on new year so your upcoming luck will be whole! This fish was so good! One of my friends ate the eye! >_< Bleck so gross~

I had a lot of fun cooking and serving everyone on Chinese New Year, most of my friends and family who were there never had these dishes so it was fun and educational for everyone. It was nice to share the story of Chinese New Year and the traditions that go with it. I can’t wait till this next year!

Have you ever celebrated Chinese New Year? What did you eat or do? Tell me  about in the comments!
