Chinese New Year 2016
As the Australian Open draws to a close, we see our beautiful city preparing for the next event embedded on our calendars - Chinese New Year! The year of the Monkey is fast approaching, with festive lanterns and lighting beginning to pop up in store fronts and windows. It’s a great time of year to celebrate all the wonderful Chinese foods and flavours we have come to love.
We are a multicultural cooking pot in Australia. Our food and culinary techniques are a muddied mixture of all the diverse and different cultural backgrounds we all come from. This makes our kitchen cupboards bursting with varied spices and staples from all around the world.
Classic Chinese flavours are a common fixture in many of our homes and at Peter Bouchier’s we are often drawing upon these flavours when we create marinades, pairing them with cuts of meat that complement the style of cooking intended. From spicy stir fry to classic pork belly, we have many products in store that tingle the tastebuds with ginger, chilli, sesame and more. Customers looking for great bbq options will be drawn towards these products with bright marinades with bold flavours.
Our top 5 Chinese inspired dishes of the moment would have to be:
Char Siu Pork Scotch
Sticky Beef Ribs
Honey Pepper Pork Ribs
Over the Chinese New Year celebration we will be making a couple of exciting products to salute our Asian influences and bring in the year of the monkey with some fun. Watch our social media platforms and keep your eyes peeled in store to see what we have created!
