About this item

This beautifully illustrated Chinese cookbook features all the most popular feast and festival food along with a wealth information.

It is often said that the Chinese live to eat. Happily for them, the rich culinary tradition of China is largely inspired by a calendar year filled with a generous round of joyous occasions—festivals, reunions, weddings and anniversaries—for eating, drinking and making merry. And, of course, for paying homage to the gods and ancestors.

Food, fittingly, is a combination of flavors and symbols (wealth, happiness, luck, prosperity), a spiritual celebration and an earthly pleasure. Chinese Feasts & Festivals, S.C. Moey has assembled a number of facts and fancies as well as a collection of festival specialties for the Chinese food lover to read and enjoy or, if the spirit takes flight, cook up a feast that will impress both mortals and ancestors and win the approval of the gods.
