Celebrating the Asian New Year.

Posted By on Sun, Feb 14, 2010 at 2:11 PM


What a way to welcome in the Year of the Tiger.  The seventh annual Asian New Year Celebration Dinner hosted by the Asian Pacific Resource and Cultural Center Saturday night was the largest such event the group has held, more than doubling previous dinner attendance to well over 100 people this time.  And what a dinner.  Over the course of four hours, nine courses of delicacies were served up -- including beef, bok choy and mushrooms in oyster sauce, shrimp with onions and peppers, a seafood based egg drop type soup, pork with quail eggs over noodles, specially marinated and fried chicken, Thousand Year eggs, savory marinated jellyfish, seaweed, Chinese sausage, Eight Treasure sweetened rice and of course the traditional whole fish.  Attendees also enjoyed searching their steamed pork dumplings for the elusive green pea, which entitled them to a special prize.

Missed it this year?  There will be another one next year -- but to tide you over, check out the Asian Festival coming up this June.
