CHINESE ZODIAC RECIPES
PRESENTED BY MAGGI® TASTE OF ASIATM
AND YING CHANG COMPESTINE
Zodiac Sign: Dog
When the animal signs were being selected, the Jade Emperor held a
race. The Dog and the Rooster were running even, then at a critical
moment the Rooster cheated and flew ahead of the Dog, gaining tenth
place in the Chinese zodiac. To this day, the Dog has not forgiven
the Rooster, and continues to chase him. With this dish, the Dog
gets a little revenge! So all those born in the sign of the Dog,
stop running and enjoy this delicious meal.
