Four special holiday dishes to try in Kunshan

Chinese New Year follows hot on the heels of Christmas in 2017, on Jan 28, and the two holidays have more than just their proximity on the calendar in common: much like Christmas in Western countries, Chinese New Year is all about family, fun, and, of course, food!

Like Christmas Day in the West, it is traditional in China to cook up an enormous feast on Chinese New Year, with dinner tables groaning under the weight of dozens of dishes.

The combinations of dishes vary a lot between families even within Jiangsu province, but there are a few traditional staples that you're sure to find on almost every table. If you're in Kunshan over the holidays, be sure to give these four tasty delicacies a try:
