Good luck for Lunar New Year

Oranges are one of the most common symbols used at Lunar New Year. The fruit is exchanged as a gift, kept around the house as an ornament and even used in Feng Shui practice. They represent good luck and abundance and are given as gifts – always in pairs – to the host when visiting family. The orange’s good reputation comes from its name. The words for orange and luck in Chinese are strikingly similar so they share the positive connotation.

We’ve pulled together some delicious recipes that celebrate this lucky fruit to help you ring in the Year of the Dog.
