In most of the regions in China, eating Chinese rice cakes during the Spring Festival is one of the most cherished traditions. The name for these rice cakes, nian gao, sounds similar with the word of meaning “better in the next year.”  It is not only a kind of festive food, but also brings good will and hopes for people for the coming year.

Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai has prepared handmade Chinese rice cakes for the 2018 Spring Festival.

Made at Si Ji Xuan, the Hotel’s Chinese restaurant, the rice cakes are coconut flavoured and shaped as fish. In Chinese, the word for fish sounds the same of “rich.”

“For the past decade, we have kept the tradition of making fully handmade rice cakes. Although it’s not as fast as mass production, the healthiness and taste are the most unique elements of our rice cakes. These are also the main reasons that brings our guests back each year. We carefully select ingredients such as glutinous rice flour from Thailand, sugar from Korea and coconut milk from Hainan. There are no additives and anti-corrosion, and they are perfect for the family to enjoy during the Chinese New Year reunion,” says Jack Zhang, head chef of Si Ji Xuan dim sum team.

Four Seasons Chinese Rice Cake gift boxes (with two rice cakes) are available now until February 15, 2018 priced at CNY 208 net.
