The Chinese New Year is one of China’s most culturally significant holidays and celebrations are currently underway to ring in The Year of the Rabbit. The Chinese New Year is steeped in tradition, much of which includes cooking traditional Chinese dishes and uniting whole families together to remember their ancestors and deceased family over a home-cooked meal.  Since we at Mission are always interested in the culinary side of these occasions, we dug around and found a few dishes that are customarily made during this 15 day festival. In addition, we have provided links to our website with some of the Asian cookware that will be necessary to make these meals. Check back every so often for a new Asian recipe/ tid bit regarding Asian cooking.
