A Gluten Free Chinese New Year Banquet

Chinese food has always been a big part of my life; it's one of my favourite cuisines whether I'm enjoying it in a tucked away, authentic Chinese restaurant in Manchester's Chinatown or am curled up on the couch with a takeaway and chopsticks. My love and respect for Chinese food has meant that I've steered clear of it in the kitchen, fearful of ruining it and slightly intimidated by the delicious complex flavours.

But when Amoy approached me about creating a Chinese New Year banquet, I knew my time had come! Save for a few of my favourite Chinese dishes like fried rice and stir fry, I never ventured into the world of cooking Chinese food. With this challenge, though, I threw myself into the deep end to recreate some of my favourite Chinese takeaway staples. But I didn't just want to recreate them, I wanted to make them gluten free and present them as a true Chinese banquet!

My banquet is filled with my favourite Chinese dishes. We start things off with my gluten free version of a takeaway classic: prawn toast. Next there's creamy chicken and sweetcorn soup followed by a heart beef main course! Today I'll share the recipe for the main course with you and the soup and prawn toast will be shared later this week so you can create your own gluten free Chinese banquet!

Chicken and sweetcorn soup may sound unusual but it's one of those perfectly comforting dishes that I always crave, especially when it gets cold! I was shocked with how easy it was to prepare and totally impressed by how tasty it is!

The fab people at Amoy sent me a hamper filled with goodies from their brand: various noodles that are cooked in a cinch in the wok, stir fry sauces, soy sauces and decorations including Chinese good luck envelopes, which are traditionally used for slipping money in, but I've repurposed as chopstick holders. They also sent a bag of fortune cookies, paper lantern decorations and flags.

My Chinese banquet ends with crunchy prawn crackers and fresh, juicy oranges in the traditional style. But, for today, let's get on with the main course recipe!
