Chinese New Year ~ 農曆新年 ~ 2016

Yum
Tis my first time celebrating Chinese New Year away from home and although it was a short break, I enjoyed myself tremendously in the company of loved ones.  And where did I go?...... Melbourne


Dragon Head in front of Eureka building, Southbank, Melbourne

Fireworks at Crown casino.

Our reunion dinner at Pacific Seafood BBQ House, Toorak Road, South Yarra.


Braised Lobster noodles, big portion, very delicious.
 The lobster was very fresh and the dish was very well done.



Waiter in action!


Braised pork knuckle.   Meat was tender and tasty as well.



Garlicky  Kai Lan 
Braised mushrooms with Broccoli, also tasty but I find that the sauce is a wee bit too thick.

And to round off our reunion dinner, we headed for dessert at Stokers in South Melbourne


Pancake Suzette
 pancakes with orange zest, butter and orange segments, drizzled with flaming Grand Marnier.



Monkey Business ~  What a co-incidence to usher in the Year of the Monkey!
Pancakes with mashed bananas, cinnamon mix and nutella.

Chocolate and Matcha Chiffon Cake ~ 巧克力抹茶戚风蛋糕

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
