Today we finished off our Chinese new year celebration by dressing in red and making yummy Chow Mein (in Manadrin “Ch’ao mein”), stir fried noodles, its a signature dish of Chinese cuisine.
Our tamariki also tried to eat Chow mein using chop sticks, it was great to see them using trial and error method to eat noodles using chop sticks. What great fun they had!!
Food is an important part of culture and our tamariki engaging in this cooking process allowed them to appreciate Chinese unique cuisine reflecting its history, lifestyle and beliefs.
新年快乐 Happy New Year !!
