Trivia in the Kitchen, Number Twenty-One!

New Year’s Day is less than a week away and were you aware that around the world the New Year is welcomed with special foods in the hopes of bringing good luck?  In Italy, it’s lentils and sausage; in Greece, a lucky coin is hidden in the sweet bread (hmm, sounds very similar to a Mardi Gras King Cake, to me); in Japan, they eat soba noodles which symbolize long life; in Spain, they eat twelve grapes at the stroke of midnight (one for each month).  What foods do you consider “festive” or “lucky?”  Black-eyed peas seem to be the food of choice here in Oklahoma (and the rest of the Southern United States).

Here’s a link to an article on lucky foods for the New Year (courtesy of Epicurius.com).
