Culinary traditions of Chinese New Year

Friday marks the 4713th year of the lunar calendar ringing in the year of the Horse for Asians around the world. This holiday, called Chinese New Year by some, kicks off a time of family gatherings, honoring of elders and especially eating. WBEZ food podcast Chewing the Fat co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng share traditions of the new year. (Photo: Flickr/Graffiti Photographic)
