“My mother made them differently,” adds C.Y. “Slowly, Sue’s tasted a little more like my mother’s, but still with her own touch. I wonder what Joanne’s will taste like 40 years from now.”
Joanne and Christopher’s space is all about tall ceilings and minimal yet well-thought-out furnishings. “We have a large table, and we don’t like things too fussy,” says Joanne. “We like simple, white plates so you can see the food and the decorations — traditional flower blossoms and citrus fruits — without being over-the-top or gaudy. You can really go crazy with banners and all kinds of red and gold stuff.”

It would be easier, and certainly a good way to celebrate Chinese New Year, to phone one of the many numbers on the trifold take-away menus tucked away in a drawer somewhere — but a little time in the kitchen goes a long way toward mother-daughter bonding and showing your good friends a little something about Chinese tradition.
