About the Event
2020 has been and still been a tough year and I think that we should put together as many good luck traditions from different counties to receive 2021 with as much luck as possible.
A major New Year's food tradition in the American South, Hoppin' John is a dish of pork-flavored field peas or black-eyed peas (symbolizing coins) and rice, frequently served with collards or other cooked greens (as they're the color of money) and cornbread (the color of gold). The dish is said to bring good luck in the new year.
While Americans watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve, the people of Spain watch the broadcast from Puerta del Sol in Madrid, where revelers gather in front of the square's clock tower to ring in the New Year.
Those out in the square and those watching at home partake in an unusual annual tradition: At the stroke of midnight, they eat one grape for every toll of the clock bell. Some even prep their grapes -- peeling and seeding them -- to make sure they will be as efficient as possible when midnight comes.
Tamales, corn dough stuffed with meat, cheese and other delicious additions and wrapped in a banana leaf or a corn husk, make appearances at pretty much every special occasion in Mexico. Groups of women gather together to make hundreds of the little packets to hand out to friends, family and neighbors
In Japanese households, families eat buckwheat soba noodles, or toshikoshi soba, at midnight on New Year's Eve to bid farewell to the year gone by and welcome the year to come. The tradition dates back to the 17th century, and the long noodles symbolize longevity and prosperity.
I was thinking to create a cooking class teaching vegan versions of all these dishes from around the world..... Who is with me ??
- some black eyed peas with collard greens
- soba noodles
- and some desserts with grapes.
Also I would like to hear about your family traditions for the new year!!!
See you at the class!
