TLC inside - Chinese New Year
Xiaoquan has been working for us as a Chinese course instructor for fifteen years and shares with us her spring roll recipe for the Chinese New Year!
Spring rolls (春卷 Chūnjuǎn) get their name because they are traditionally eaten during the Spring Festival often referred to as Chinese New Year. They became popular around the world.
Eating spring rolls is a way to welcome the arrival of spring. It has its origin in thin pancake dishes with more than a thousand years long history. The golden cylindrical-shaped rolls represent gold bars and symbolize wealth.
In 2020, the first day of the Chinese New Year will be on Saturday, 25 January, starting the Year of the Rat.
