Ultimate Chinese New Year menu by a Chinese Restaurant Awards judge – Gourmetfury.com
By Melody Fury (Judge of HSBC Chinese Restaurant Awards 2011)
This year just flew by. It feels like only months ago that I compared Mama Fury’s home cooking to dining out for Chinese New Year celebrations.
In the year of the tiger, I started Vancouver Food Tour – the #1 most popular tourist attraction in Vancouver, appeared on TV… twice, said “yes” to The Cowboy of my dreams, ate a lot of balls, dined on the world’s first floating dining room built on plastic bottles, went prawning at sea and devoured live spot prawns, reported live from the Winter Olympics and consequently gave up eating meat, travelled with my stomach, and ate deep fried butter and beer.
One especially rewarding and humbling experience was judging in the prestigious HSBC Chinese Restaurant Awards in Vancouver.
