Setting a Chinese Table

This Month's Film: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
Cuisine: Chinese

An attractive table setting always adds an extra element of elegance and authenticity to a Chinese meal. I like to use Lucky Bamboo instead of a floral centerpiece. And a colorful sarong with an Asian motif is always a more interesting choice than an ordinary tablecloth. Add chopsticks, serving dishes with a classic Chinese pattern, a little candlelight, and you’ve got just the right feng shui for a memorable Chinese meal.
