Mei Lin and the Reunion Dinner
- About the Series
Mei Lin and her mother are decorating the house for Chinese New Year. When Mei Lin’s mother realises that Mei Lin has eaten up all the love letters, she sends her to her grandmother’s – her Nai Nai’s – house to make more. Nai Nai shows her how to combine the coconut milk, eggs, sugar and flour for the batter and how to use the special mould for love letters. Mei Lin helps Nai Nai prepare the food for steamboat, for reunion dinner, and arranges the items for yu sheng (tossed raw fish salad).
Through the story, readers will learn more about the three dishes highlighted in the story – love letters, steamboat and yu sheng – as well as some of the colourful customs of Chinese New Year.
This is one of five titles in an illustrated heritage cookbook series that aims to inspire children to discover more about the traditional dishes of the various ethnic groups in Singapore, through imaginative storylines involving kids learning about food and cooking for themselves.
