Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Ling Ling Asian Food Los Angeles Event (at Hipcooks in West L.A.)  with a wonderful group of Bloggers and the amazing Chef Katie Chin. It was an amazing experience and I especially enjoyed learning great cooking tips from Katie Chin and tasting the delicious Ling Ling food products! We were put into small groups and we actually made two recipes: Kale with Ginger, which is a delicious salad and Sweet & Spicy Green Beans. They were simple recipes and Katie Chin made everything seem super easy!

I know that I will be making both of these recipes for my family for Chinese New Year! My favorite was the Sweet & Spicy Green Beans!

    

Besides having so much fun at this event and meeting Katie Chin, my favorite thing was trying the delicious Ling Ling food! I had tried the Fried Rice before but had not tried the Noodles or the Potstickers. So, I was really excited to try both of them!

     

It’s really difficult to just pick one of their products as my ultimate favorite because everything was so good! I loved the delicious Authentic Asian Style Noodles! They were absolutely tasty! I tried the Drunken Noodles and the Yakisoba Noodles and I liked both of them so cannot choose between the two! I am already a big fan of Ling Ling’s Fried Rice so I am planning to make it for Chinese New Year for my family. If I have to choose a favorite though, it would be the Potstickers! I hadn’t tried them before and let’s just say…you can’t just have one! I REALLY can’t wait to find these at my local store and make them for the Chinese New Year! You can check out Ling Ling’s website here!

I also learned so much about Chinese New Year from the knowledgeable Chef Katie Chin and I am truly looking forward to making a celebration for my family this year! I actually am planning to make a feast with Ling Ling Fried Rice, Noodles and Potstickers. I am also on the lookout to find their Spring Rolls!  I will also be buying a few Red & Gold decorations and you can easily use red napkins and Oriental Trading and World Market have some really nice decorations.

I also learned about some Chinese New Year customs and superstitions from Katie Chin. Two of my favorites are the following:

1. Greeting friends with oranges or tangerines during the New Year will ensure that your friendships remain intact.

2. No sweeping on New Year’s Day as you’ll sweep all your good luck out the door. No sweeping for me on February 16th!

Here are a couple more:

Stepping into new shoes on New Year’s morning to start your year off on the right foot (A Personal Favorite of Chef Katie)
Distribution of Red Envelopes (signifying Joy and Luck) filled with money to start the year with prosperity.

So, how do you plan to celebrate Chine New Year this February 16th? Don’t forget to look for the tasty Ling Ling products at your local store! Find out where to buy here!
