Hockessin's Chinese Festival Cooks up Delights

Lion DanceFor more than the past 20 years, the Chinese American Community Center in Hockessin, Delaware has hosted a festival. Even though Wilmington's Italian and Greek Festivals preceed it by a week or two, I have always considered this the "go to" festival. Maybe it's because there are not inebriated people tripping over you and getting jostled by the crowd, but I enjoy this family event held in a former elementary school where the group holds classes all year. 

A special event this year was a new lion for the Blunt-Bradleytraditional lion dance, and it was welcomed by a group of local politicos, including Gov. Carney and U. S. Senator Carper, as well as our first woman representative in Congress and first black to hold that position. I like Lisa Blunt Bradley's spirit, because when the event chair introduced her as our Congressman, she corrected him with "no, it's Congresswoman!"

Julianna SooAnother added event was a cooking class--and guess who now knows how to make authentic Chinese chicken dumplings? It was a small class taught by CACC member Juliana Soo, who was so patient showing me how to "crease, not pinch" the dough edges. And the best part was eating the freshly fried crispy dumplings. YUM!

As ususal, there was a stage show of musicians and dancers, and my favorites were the girls from the folk dance group from the CACC.
