During Chinese New Year, families sit together and eat a big meal. Dumplings, or jiǎo zi 饺子 in Chinese, are the most important course of the traditional Chinese New Year eve feast. Usually, families will sit around the dinner table and wrap dumplings together in the afternoon on Spring Festival eve. The reason Chinese people eat dumplings is because of their shape like the ancient sliver & gold ingots which symbolize wealth. People saying that more dumplings you eat during New Year time; the more money you will make next year.

Pop into the Asia Market and celebrate this and celebrate this wonderful tradition!

You can also learn how to wrap and make your own traditional savoury dumplings with a live demo happening throughout the day.
