Ask Biggie in the New Year

First off, Happy New Year! In keeping with our general cultural mishmash (and my culinary A.D.D.), we saw in the New Year with Korean-flavored toshikoshi soba before midnight, and ate Puerto Rican-style black-eyed peas and Italian greens on New Year’s Day — all good luck dishes for the new year. Football’s over, so now I’m wading through five hours of Kohaku (Japanese Red & White Singing Festival) on Tivo as I write. It’s kind of like watching the ball drop on New Year’s Eve — a tradition that makes it really feel like the old year has come to a close.

I’ll be trying out all kinds of new speedy lunch tips and recipes this year, so don’t be shy about letting me know if you’d like to see a post on something in particular! E-mail your requests to me at askbiggie (AT) gmail (DOT ) com and I’ll start up a regular “Ask Biggie” column.

  1. Haouli Makahiki Hou!

    Happy New Year from (visiting in) Honolulu. I have not heard about Kohaku, so will be looking for it on YouTube. We shared some Japanese/Hawaiian New Year’s traditions with my son’s pre-school, cleaning your house, lighting firecrackers at midnight on New Year’s Eve, waking up and taking a bath, then eating ozoni first thing, making and displaying kadomatsu - which I made for the first time this year with bamboo from our own backyard.

    Also, the dollar store here where i used to get all my fun off brand bento stuff is no more ;o
    I guess I’ll have to wait until we visit SF and until th en I’ll have to fantasize about dollar store bento shopping.

    Kung Hee Fat Choy!

    ps: very courageous of you to come out of the virtual closet so to speak, part of the allure of online celebrity is anonymity!

  2. Oh man, I love Kohaku-had never known that was what it was called, though. Now I can watch clips on YouTube! Thanks :)
