Tet Recipe Ideas

Tet Recipe Ideas

With the Vietnamese New Year festivities starting tomorrow, I'd like to share some of my favorite Asian dishes with you. As I've mentioned many times, there is a tradition of abstaining from meat from the day before the new year through the day after. With as many  vegetarians as I have in my home, I always find myself coming up with new variations on Vietnamese dishes. 

The first ceremony is starting tomorrow. It's called "đưa ông Táo". It means farewelling the Kitchen God to the heaven. I'm preparing an elaborate display to pay respect to the gods and to our ancestors, and only vegetarian food will suffice. 

I also listed a lot of festive dishes that I love. Maman used to prepare so many marvelous seafood dishes for Tết (on the 19th of February this year).  I hope you'll find a lot of inspiration in this post.
