This time of year is all about gathering with family, honoring traditions, attracting good fortune—and celebrating with big feasts. As we prepare for our own festivities, we’re sharing some of our favorite dishes (recipes included!) that will be on our tables this weekend.
Let the feasting begin. Here's what's on our menu.
Chinese dumplings, a crowd-pleasing starter dish. Make these crispy, pork-filled ones from scratch or use store-bought wrappers to save some time (we won't tell).

A Korean beef broth soup with rice cakes which symbolizes good fortune and good health in the new year (and which happens to be extremely delicious).
No Tết celebration is complete without these traditional Vietnamese sticky rice cakes with mung bean and pork.
For dessert, these Chinese glutinous rice balls filled with black sesame paste make for a sweet and auspicious end to the meal.
