Have you ever thought about a Chinese New Year banquet menu? We love Chinese food but there are only a few restaurants in our area. It can get really expensive to feed everyone when you go out to eat. For the most part, we make our own Chinese food at home when we want it. Plus, some restaurants use MSG in the preparation of their Chinese food and that makes my daughter sick.

Now, it’s not difficult to make your own Chinese New Year banquet at home. You can make it as large or small as you like and vary it on everyone’s preferences. Here are a few easy Chinese New Year recipes that you can start with. A rice cooker will make the process much easier because you can prepare a large batch of rice and keep it warm.

Of course, it’s not all about the food. You’ll want to take a look at the decor. Half of the fun of having a Chinese New Year Buffet is the decorations and the ambiance. Of course, you can do a few simple things like put a red tablecloth on the table and use Chinese themed napkins and plates. And, you can also hang a few paper lanterns from the ceiling. Of course, chopsticks are an absolute must. Don’t forget to get children’s sized chopsticks which will be easier for them to handle.

  1. I have found this brand at Costco. So yummy! We do 1 costco box that has 2 packages for my family of 6. It seems to be enough When the younger boys get older I think I would need more. :-)
  2. These look delicious!  I'm sure that they're healthier for you than the dishes from many local Chinese restaurants.
