The Year of the Snake is almost here! For those interested in celebrating the Lunar New Year with traditional lore and tasty eats, these foods will maximize your fortune, health, and happiness for 2013. Long noodles represent a long life. Golden egg rolls resemble gold bars, and therefore will bring you wealth. A chicken served whole – head, feet, and all – and cut at the table (never before), symbolizes a year of good health. Enjoy them on Sunday and, as Spock says, “Live long and prosper!”
*Note: These dishes primarily represent Chinese culture, but many others celebrate the Lunar New Year too! For a taste of Tết (Vietnamese) or Seollal (Korean), good dishes to try are bánh chưng and tteokguk respectively.
