Chinese New Year is on the immediate horizon, so as a friendly service reminder, I thought I’d provide you with this handy dandy guide. All of these (in my humble opinion) are fantastic recipes that will help make your celebrations complete. Most are from this blog, but you’ll also find links in there to recipes published in such places as Food52, Zester Daily, Swallow Daily, and The Huffington Post. And, come August, just about every one will be included in my upcoming All Under Heaven: Recipes from the 35 Cuisines of China (McSweeney's + Ten Speed, 2016).
And, to get you in the mood, here's an article that just went up on Food52 called “How to Eat with the 24 Chinese Seasons.”

During your kitchen breaks, relax with some fun stuff. Here for your entertainment are some things I’ve posted over the years...
My short story “Monkey Eve” was published in Alimentum and then was included in Best Food Writing 2015.
Ever heard of dragon whisker candy? You'll find that this a very fun video on a truly amazing sweet.
Finally – and I admit this has zero to do with food – we have here a video I made a couple of years ago of a murmuration of starlings up in California’s Wine Country.
