It is Lunar New Year in the Asian calendar – Year of the Pig! I love this time of year – the season for gathering, cooking, and feasting with loved ones. My Nepalese friend and I made delicious deep fried soft-shell crabs, spare ribs and kale broth, and pork dumplings to celebrate with our English and Korean friends.
↑ Traditionally, red is an auspicious colour in Chinese culture. This holiday season, I’m donning burgundy, a cousin in the reds and purples family.
