We kick of 2020's series of our monthly tradition, Community Dinner, with an offering from our Southeast Asian cuisine instructor, Linda Tay Esposito. To celebrate Chinese New Year at 18 Reasons, she's recreating a meal from her childhood, recalling what she'd eat with her family at her Ah Ma's (grandmother's) house to welcome to the start of a new lunar year. These dishes are typical "open house" dishes for celebrations; these dishes keep well throughout the day and feed your guests whenever they drop in for a visit.

Walk down memory lane with Linda and celebrate with friends, familiar and new, at our dinner tables!
