Join Macy’s Culinary Council Chef Ming Tsai for a Lunar New Year cooking demonstration! Chef Tsai will demonstrate three dishes perfect for your Lunar New Year celebration: Salmon Salad with Shallot Orange Vinaigrette, Smashed Shrimp Shumai, and Eight Treasure Fried Rice.  In addition to these recipes, Chef Tsai will provide other Lunar New Year recipes and explain the symbolism behind each dish.
