The Gregorian New Year -- January first, that is -- brings with it promises of salads and smoothies and generally healthy fare. After a month of all of that, we're excited for a different kind of celebration.
This Sunday will mark the Lunar New Year, celebrated in a variety of cultures and countries -- including China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. To celebrate, we'll be casting off our kale salads for umami-packed noodles, scallion pancakes, and roast duck. For those of you still committed to January resolutions, we tip our hats; we'll be sure to save you some tofu. But that ice cream's all us.
