台灣圍爐食物的吉祥寓意Traditional Chinese New Year Food

更新日期:2月 2

除夕就是農曆新年的前一天晚上, 這一天全家會打掃家中除舊佈新以迎接新年的到來, 晚餐會是一整年中最豐盛的一餐, 並且出外的遊子也會回來家中團聚, 除夕晚餐又稱 "圍爐" , 因為傳統餐桌下也會放置一個燒炭的暖爐, 大家圍坐一起用餐. 因此除追求豐盛色香味俱全犒賞自己及家人,更重要的意義在於連繫情感,祈福並討個好兆頭。

“Wéi lú “ is the name for the Chinese New Year feast. It's the biggest meal of the year.(Think Christmas dinner) All of the food on the table is considered lucky for various reasons.

Anita 和大家介紹一下在台灣常見得

圍爐食物以及其代表意義>

Here is an introduction to a few of the wéi lú dishes

年糕:糕,諧音同「高」,因此年糕象徵「年年高升」。年糕是糯米製成的甜糕, 我最喜歡切片裹粉炸過的年糕了!

Niángāo is a sweet rice cake that taste especially good battered and deep fried. The gāo sounds similar to height in the Chinese language and therefore symbolizes promotion.

:象徵「年年有餘」,在吃年夜飯時,所有菜色都可以吃完,唯獨魚肉不能吃完,才能讓你在新的一年裡能夠「有餘」。通常都是整尾完整的魚喔.

A whole cooked fish including the head is also served. Fish(yú) and abundance( yǒu yú) have a similar sound. The family purposely doesn't finish their fish that night in the hope of abundance in the New Year.

發糕:取其諧音,象徵發財、高升,發糕上方通常會有明顯裂縫,人們認為發糕上頭的裂縫越大,則代表來年的富貴財運會更加亨通。

Fa Gao is a yeast risen rice flour cupcake. It sounds like fā cái which means to get rich.

餃子:又稱「元寶」,由於餃子的形狀就像金元寶,象徵招財進寶、財源滾滾,有的家庭還會在其中幾顆水餃裡頭包進一枚硬幣,吃到硬幣的人,則代表來年會有好財運。

Steamed dumplings are eaten because they are in the shape of a gold ingot. Some families will hide a coin in one of the dumplings for good luck.

湯圓:取其「團圓」的意義,更是正月十五日元宵節必備的傳統代表食物。

Boiled balls of glutinous rice flour called tāng yuán are eaten. It has a similar sound to tuán yuán which means to have a reunion.

:象徵「起家」,在年夜飯上的雞肉以全雞為主,包含雞頭和雞屁股,代表「全家福」、「全家團圓」。

ke/kue is chicken in Taiwanese and sounds similar to home in the same language. Again, it symbolizes reunion.

火鍋:過年圍爐時,都會準備一鍋料多味美、熱騰騰的火鍋,代表「闔家團圓」。

Hot Pot is a simmering broth that meat and vegetables are cooked in. It is served because everyone sits around the pot and symbolizes reunion.

鳳梨:鳳梨的台語諧音為「旺來」,象徵好運旺旺來。

ōng-lâi is the Taiwanese word for pineapple. It symbolizes prosperity and therefore is lucky.

餐桌上準備一瓶Anita's辣醬更是增加美味的好秘方喔! Heat up the Lunar New Year feast by serving Anita's Hot Sauce.
