Celebrate the Year Of the Dragon with our special Year of The Dragon Box!

We've teamed up with Cherry @feedthetang for authentic Chinese recipe suggestions and with Atlas Fine Wines for outstanding wine pairings to match the dishes with.

 

"Back home in Hong Kong we generally have a daily feast for the entire 15 days of the Chinese New Year - from the reunion dinner on New Year's Eve to the Lantern Festival on the last day of the celebration. Every dish or snack has a special meaning to bring fortune, wealth, wisdom or health" - Cherry

 

- THE FOOD - 

Our Henderson To Home Dragon box only contains all the star seafood (highlighted in BOLD RED below) needed to recreate the dishes suggested by Cherry. The rest of the ingredients (herbs, vegetables, soy sauce and kitchen cupboard stables like salt & pepper) part of the dish creation are not included in our box.

- THE FINE WINES - 

We recommend pairing the dishes with Atlas Fine Wines's special Year Of The Dragon box which features 3 outstanding bottles especially sourced from their exclusive cellars:

  • CHAMPAGNE: ADRIEN RENOIR, VERZY GRAND CRU, LE TERROIR NV
    From one of Champagne’s ‘bright young stars’, this is the perfect organic aperitif to a variety of seafood dishes and Atlas suggests pairing with the stir-fried tiger prawns
  • WHITE: VIETTI, ROERO ARNEIS 2022
    From one of Piedmont’s top estates, this Roero Arneis (which translates from local dialect to ‘little rascal’!) is crisp and easy drinking, perfect with a steamed whole fish
  • RED: CHÂTEAU BEYCHEVELLE, 4ÈME CRU CLASSÉ, ST JULIEN 2017
    From one of the most impressive châteaux in the Médoc, the iconic dragon boat on the label has made this wine almost synonymous with Lunar New Year festivities and a top pairing for handpicked crab tofu.

    Order your wine box directly from the Atlas WinePro website here where you can also read about the history and tasting notes of each wine selected by Simon Larkin, Master of Wine, at Atlas Fine Wines.
