Chef Jimmy Wong has pulled out all the stops by pouring over ancient Chinese recipes and tracking down the nest ingredients for the customary Yee Sang or Prosperity Toss.

Prosperity Toss or Yee Sang

This dish consists of raw fish and salad combined with sauces and other condiments which diners would toss with chopsticks to ensure a happy, healthy, successful and prosperous new year ahead.

Having honed his culinary skills in some of the finest hotels and resorts in Hong Kong, Singapore and China, Chef Jimmy believes that the company you are with counts as much as the food.

“Chinese New Year is all about spending time with the people we love,” he says. “This year, I’ve featured my personal favourites from the dishes I always make for my own family on Chinese New Year.”

And what are those dishes? Apart from the traditional Salmon Belly Yee Sang which he adds an ingredient to each passing year, Chef Jimmy also puts in tuna toro and Australian lobster to the mix.

New dishes for the festive season include Braised Money Bags Filled with Ten Head Abalone, Fragrant Roasted Duck with Osmanthus Flower and Double Boiled Superior Bird’s Nest with Red Dates.
