BACGG New Year Recipes


Chinese New Years is almost upon us and we hope you are making plans to prepare for the Year of the Ox.  Today we launched our virtual BACGG Chinese New Years Recipe Flip-Book to share with you. Each recipe is a traditional dish and a family favorite to welcome in the New Year. The first five recipes includes a link to watch the video of home chef demonstrating how to make their dish.   Enjoy!   

UPDATE March 6, 2021: Added are 16 NEW recipes and measurements to “Jai May’s Way”

How to Prepare for the Year of the Ox

To help you prepare for the Year of the Ox, we are Introducing our BACGG virtual flip-book on “How to Prepare for the Year of the Ox.”  This virtual flip book is only a highlight and we invite you to do more research on your own. Start by talking to your family to gather any forgotten personal family New Year traditions. 

We are also collecting family recipes to include into our BACGG flip-cookbook. Please email them to by February 27, 2021. 

This 1 hour video features Rosemary Gong, author of Good Luck Life, sharing the traditions of Chinese New Year. Plus we have five chefs demonstrating how to prepare traditional Chinese New Year dishes: jai, dumplings, steamed fish, white cut chicken, and rice cake.

    • Glad you enjoyed the recipes in our BACGG Cookbook. We will be adding more recipes towards the end of February, so check back
