새해 복 많이 받으세요!

Happy 설날 (New Year) Y'all!!

Today is Korean New Year which coincides with Lunar New Year (as well as Chinese and Vietnamese New Year)! So out with the old and bring in the new...

Typically this three day holiday calls for visits home, where we'll dress up in hanbok's like this:

my mother in law and mother, dressed up in Hanbok's at our PaeBaek
and make sure to enjoy some 떡국 (Duk guk) and Japchae - here's a link to recipes from Kelly Choi, the host of "Top Chef Masters", traditional dishes we serve at the new year.

Also don't forget to sebae (Bow) to your elders and recieve your envelopes of fresh clean cash (cha ching!)
Read this great article by Min Jin Lee on WSJ called My Korean New Year for more insight into the holiday!

Happy New Year y'all... Enjoy the year of the Rabbit!
