The Rooster will crow its infamous crow to welcome 2017, a new lunar year celebrated across Asia January 28th. Galleria Supermarket invited its allies and media partners to the York Mills branch on Friday, January 20, as a special way to kick off the year with a multiple "Asian fondue" demonstration.
Sponsor products included condiments and sauces from Lee Kum Kee and seafood from Anchor's Bay. Host chef Sang Kim, a celebrated chef, author and serial restaurateur, showcased how hot pot traditions are famously celebrated in China, Japan and South Korea in their distinctive styles and ingredients. During New Year, this do-it-yourself experience becomes a special gathering for family and guests at the table to cook their favourite foods in one or two large communal pot(s) of simmering broth. Across the countries, this meal ritual is meant to bring good luck, peace and happiness to the entire family.
The event was a fun tasty experience filled with a lot of laughter and joy, guests left happily with a generous tote of Galleria and sponsor products to enjoy at home!
