Hot Pot Party

My family uses any excuse to have a party with great food and even better company. My aunts and cousins prepared a Hot Pot party to celebrate all of the birthdays in January and February. Hot pot is a traditional Chinese meal where you sit around a boiling pot of broth with a variety of raw meats, vegetables and noodles that you cook at the table.

Portable butane burners are perfect to set up on tables. You can buy them for under $20 on or usually at Chinese kitchen supply stores

The veggies, mushrooms, meats and fish paste are all washed, cut and ready to go!

My favorite part is the selection of sauces. Soy sauce, ginger, scallions, oil, oyster sauce, ketchup and more! Everyone can make their own mixture of sauce and be happy.

Everyone places the food in the broth and scoops it out with little metal nets. Here's the kid's table enjoying some good hot pot!
