Andrew and Peggy Cherng reflect on the meaning of Lunar New Year and share their favorite memories from the holiday.
Following a lightning round of questions and a guest spot from Chef Jimmy Wang, Andrew and Peggy share Lunar New Year memories from their youths. As a boy in China, Taiwan and Japan, Andrew fondly remembers a big feast on New Year’s Eve and waking up the following morning to red envelopes, new clothes, and positive energy. Peggy recalls an abundance of food, including her favorite sweet rice cakes, shared with the whole family.
These days Andrew always looks forward to the smiles and good luck foods during Lunar New Year, while Peggy loves getting her family together over plenty of food on New Year’s Eve. To close, Andrew and Peggy share encouraging words and well wishes to the Panda family. Happy Year of the Ox.
