Happy Chinese New Year!
Okay--I took one of these photos, Jam Guy took the rest. Guess which one I took.
Fried trout with black bean sauce and garden greens
Wontons, from our inexact family recipe
Changde Rice Noodles with Red-Braised Beef, from Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook: Recipes from Hunan Province by Fuschia Dunlop
and the somewhat incongruous but super-festive and delicious Chocolate-Cherry Upside Down Cake, from Spoonbread and Strawberry Wine: Recipes and Reminiscences of a Family, by Norma Jean and Carol Darden.
I know. We used the same camera and everything.
