恭喜發財! Happy Chinese New Year everyone, the year of the rooster begins today. Today were supposed to eat oranges because the Chinese word for 'orange' (橙 chéng) sounds like 'success' (成 chéng). We're also supposed to eat the sticky rice cake nian gao because the word for 'cake' (糕 gāo) sounds like 'high' (高 gāo). I decided to go one better and make a cake that looks like an orange.

I've mentioned before that being half Chinese and being part of a Jewish family can have some interesting culinary blockers, as Chinese food often features pork and seafood so often. I challenged myself to make a typical Chinese New Year dimsum dish that both sides of the family could enjoy.

I found some green cocoa butter velvet spray in my ingredients cupboard the other day. The most obvious thing to do with it would be to make something with matcha, right? Because I always make matcha everything. Instead I decided to go down the pistachio mousse route instead.
