Since this is a special Asian lunar year, new years is being celebrated in all Asian countries ... That mean you can celebrate with Chinese or Thai or Vietnamese or ...!

LBF - FWIW, I made pork and vegetable and chicken and carrot kimchi dumplings with a few friends. I love doing it with someone else, we made 400, yep - 400! We ate some right away, split the loot when we were done. Easy & delicious. I have some frozen but keep popping them out to re-heat. Love them!

Bigpan, the Mariners aren't playing on Sunday. You'll have to wait until April for that. The precise date of the celebration isn't exactly the same for each country (although you would think it would be). The Year of the Horse begins in China on Friday, but the lunar new year seems to have different celebration dates if you are Korean or Vietnamese or...

i agree, sam. They ran a dumplings contest in 2011 or so, but maybe they could run an ASIAN dumplings contest and or do a feature of some type. I don't know if you rcve enewsletters from Serious Eats, Sam, but they did a really super photo and description piece on 35 major types of dumplings, most of which we see here in Boston dim sum places. :

Right, I got confused as I was online trying to get Mariners tix for this summer...obviously confused between Mariners and Seahawks because of lack of food - chinese or chilim and not living in Seattle (or USA for that matter).

Thanks everyone...those tea eggs are definitely on the menu. We're having friends over tomorrow so I get an extra day to think.

Don't forget to turn the leftover tea eggs into an egg salad!

We did a big feast last night though I don't exactly have recipes since they were all cobbled together from various sources or imagination. We had spicy chicken wings, soup dumplings, pomegranate glazed pork belly with burnt tangerine and herbs in mandarin pancakes, whole fried fish, noodles in shiitake dressing and blood orange sorbet with a sesame brittle, peanut butter cookie. A fabulous pot luck affair.

I made this the other night - very good: http://thirstyfortea.com...

To be honest, I didn't even realize it was Chinese New Year, but will now claim it was intentional! (I've had variations of this dish out and was just intrigued to try making it.)
