For all of Asia, this is when we have new year celebrations. It's much more food centric than than the end of december.
Watchu guys making ?
I got some lotus root
Nice lotus root! I've only had it once in hot pot.
Making dumplings/wontons for sure, and likely gonna buy some sweet Tangyuan (sticky rice balls w/sweet filling). Everything else is up to whimsy/energy levels.
Made a fish fumet from haddock head and bones
Here's my snow day lotus root soup: lotus roots, yu choy, shiitake mushrooms, puff tofu, haddock chunks, chili oil
Oh my god I could cry. Why am I not eating that right now
This is legit new years now. My mom made bánh chưng
Sticky rice, mung bean, fatty pork, fish sauce, wrapped in a banana leaf and steamed
East meets new england
quahogs - fermented black bean, cracked black pepper, ginger, garlic, cilantro, rice wine vinegar, local butter
The leftover sauce I used for fried rice
You can't have new years without fruit, especially citrus
Blood orange beef
I just ended up with lots of dumplings + wontons :)
