Time to feast.

In 2021, communities across the world will be celebrating Lunar New Year on February 12. Although commonly known as Chinese New Year, the annual celebration marks the beginning of the year according to the lunisolar calendar, and is celebrated over a number of days in countries such as China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore, as well as those diasporic communities in living Australia.
Lunar New Year involves visiting family and friends, paying respects to ancestors, giving (or if you're lucky, receiving) packets of "lucky money", and dining on banquet-style feasts. Whip up some noodles for long life, fry up some crisp spring rolls, or try Kylie Kwong's twist on the Cantonese classic dish, sweet and sour pork.
