Gong Xi Fa Cai! The Good Co. wishes everyone a wealth of happiness, abundance and good health this auspicious Year of the Rooster. To celebrate this Chinese New Year with prosperity, The Good Co. crafted the most symbolic dish for the most important festival in the Chinese lunar calendar – Yee Sang. Eaten with the traditional “Lou Hei” ritual by tossing the Yee Sang ingredients high in the air while shouting all things auspicious, good fortune and especially good health; we believe good health should be reflected in the ingredients of the Yee Sang.
