Are we aware of the significance behind each dish and ingredient?
Do we know the recipes and methods involved with our favourite CNY treats?
If we, the current generation, don’t bother to take an active interest in something as simple as a family recipe (which is really a heritage and cultural heirloom) who is to say that our kids or grandkids will be able to partake of it and enjoy it like we did?
An example in point is my grandma’s braised duck. Everyone loved it and now we are reduced to missing it because no one bothered learning it from her while she was still around. My aunts always agree that some essential, key even, part is missing when attempting to recreate grandma’s braised duck.
Are we all going to eat out on CNY dinner come 2020?
