Top 8 Chinese New Year Recipes – Appetizers

Food plays a major role in Chinese New Year celebrations. Pearl balls are frequently served at Chinese New Year celebrations. The round meatball signifies reunion, and this is traditionally a time for families to come together. Egg rolls or Spring Rolls are also popular - they are thought to symbolize wealth, since the roll resembles a 10-ounce gold bar.  And you'll often find families making dumplings together on New Year's Eve, particularly in northern China.

4. Clam Sycee

Clam sycee originated in Shanghai, on the coast of eastern China. A popular New Year's dish, it symbolizes good fortune and prosperity, as the stuffed clams resemble the gold or silver bouillion originally used as money in China.

5. Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are made with a thinner wrapper than egg rolls. Choose from Cantonese Spring Rolls, Mini Spring Rolls, Spring Rolls With Barbecued Pork, Vegetable Spring Rolls.

6. Lettuce Wraps
