I need a little help planning my dinner for Chinese New Year. My mother in law already called to say they are coming here. My husband thinks I'm ambitious to cook a whole Chinese dinner for New Year. I just think that if I carefully plan, I could do a good job. His family is Shanghainese so I'd like to cook things to surprise his parents.
I think in egullet there is somewhere Rarerollingobject recipe (where are you, dear RRO?) for xiaolongbao and I'd like to make those. Definitely some steamed fish and some easy saute' vegetables, eight treasure pudding and some tang yuan and for sure Sunflower's pork belly which is spectacular.
Any other idea?
