Chinese New Year is the most important Chinese festival in the calendar, marking the start of the new year. The year 2016 coincides with the Year of the Monkey on the Chinese calendar, with millions of people around the world celebrating and welcoming the new year with their families and friends. Apart from firecrackers, lion dances and red envelopes, families will not miss gathering for their annual reunion dinner.
Home cooked dishes will be prepared for the reunion dinner, so here’s a little something to help you prepare and cook your favourite dishes easily. With Philips’ kitchen appliances, you can save your energy on cooking and spare it for a mahjong session or just simply spend more quality time with your loved ones. Here’s how simple it is.
Prepare your dishes conveniently and fast with Philips’ Viva Collection Food Processor. This Philips Food Processor has a 3 in 1 compact set-up with a 2 litre bowl, blender and grinder mill. It also has 5 stainless steel disc inserts enabling you to effortlessly create a wide variety of your favorite recipes. For best results, use the low speed setting (speed 1) to whip cream, beat eggs, and create pastries and bread dough. The higher speed setting (speed 2) is well suited for chopping onions and meats, blending soups and smoothies or shredding, slicing, grating or rasping vegetables. Now who needs another hand in the kitchen? Not anymore!
One definite dish that we won’t miss out during Chinese New Year would be fish. “年年有余” – ‘may you have surplus and abundance every year’ is a common blessing expressed during Chinese New Year, and is represented with a dish of fish. The Pure Essentials Collection Steamer can steam fish and more. You can prepare your favourite soup, stew, porridge, rice and more.
Let’s not forget our favourite fried dishes during Chinese New Year. From spring rolls to fried chicken, we don’t know when to stop feasting on all these delicious foods. The Philips Viva Collection Digital Airfryer will ensure you feast on fried food without guilt. Philips’ unique Rapid Air Technology lets you fry with air to make food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with up to 80% less fat. You can even grill, roast and bake using the Airfryer.
Why worry if your soup is overboiled or if you have enough time to make soups? Step aside and let the Philips Viva Collection Electronic Pressure Cooker take the pressure away from you and assist you in making your favourite soup. The pressure cooker has an auto pressure release device to ensure safety during cooking while you are away from the kitchen and spending some time with your family. It also has the ability to help you keep your soup or rice warm. So all you have to do now is throw all your ingredients into it and press the ‘start’ button.
