Food: Bringing You a Little Good Fortune in 2010

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

It's Wednesday, the day we talk about food.  New Year's Eve is almost here and folks will be celebrating in all kinds of different ways; hopefully all of them will involve food and good fortune.  Takeaway contributor Niesha Lofing, staff writer for The Sacramento Bee, says even her mother's traditional stinky, boiled corned beef and cabbage brought a little luck to her house when she was growing up. She says her family tradition isn't unique: cultures all around the world celebrate lucky foods at the New Year, as Lofing wrote for the Bee, and she brings a few into the studio to share.
