Ringing in the Year of the Rat

Hosted by

We celebrate the lunar year, known as tết in Vietnamese culture .  Bánh chưng, a rice and mung bean cake, is an essential dish in the celebration.  With banana leaf in hand, Gillian Ferguson visited a group of women known as the Bánh Chưng Collective to make the traditional sticky squares.
