Asian Blur Chinese 1167160

My family and I are looking forward to the Chinese New Year celebrations this week starting with our New Year Eve dinner on Friday and continuing with the celebrations well into the following week.

My menu for this year will be based on the top seven lucky foods traditionally served during the 16 day festival season. These include Dumplings & Spring Rolls which are both symbols of wealth. Noodles bring happiness & longevity and Fish an increase in prosperity. I have also chosen to add Sweet Rice Balls to the menu which symbolises ‘family togetherness’ and finish our meal with Good Fortune Fruit symbolising ‘fullness & wealth’. As usual I’ll be putting my own twist to these dishes by using my readymade Nonya Secrets sauces.

This rather special menu will be posted on the website. I’ll also be posting additional recipes and videos on Instagram over the next couple of weeks showing you how to recreate these dishes at home using my sauces.

During the festival season I’ll be hosting tasting sessions in some of our stockists. Look out for the dates on social media!

To help celebrate the New Year we are offering a 15% discount on online orders. Simply input the promotional code CNY2020 to receive your discount.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your custom and wish you a very happy and prosperous year


Best Wishes

Maureen Suan Neo

  1. Hi Maureen,
    I’ve introduced many people over the past 15 months or so, since discovering your sauces, to your products and am pleased to tell you that they have been enthusiastically taken up by everyone. So keep on producing more flavours!
    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Maureen!

    I introduced my Gran to your sauces last year and she absolutely loves them (as do I), particularly the Rendang.

    All the best.
