Good luck foods

Need some luck with your food. According to Food52, it can’t hurt to try to rustle some up by cooking these traditionally auspicious foods this new year.

  • Eat 12 grapes at the midnight, one to bring good luck to each month of the year.
  • Simmer a big pot of the classic Hoppin’ John, which is rumored to be auspicious because the black-eyed peas resemble coins and the greens paper bills.
  • Bake a coin into a cake, and tell whoever gets it in their slice that they’re in for the luckiest year yet (just warn everyone first so that there are no dental emergencies).
  • Eat some lentils (we have so, so many ways), because, again, they kind of look like money—about as much as spicy, bacon-infused greens resemble dollar bills.
  • Cook some lucky swine in any of its forms (pancetta, pork chops, etc.).
  • Slurp some noodles, which symbolize a long, happy life.
  • Maybe this is the year you roast a whole fish (the Chinese word for fish, “Yu,” sounds like the word for abundance).
  • And don’t forget about ring-shaped foods of all stripes: donuts, bagels, and onion rings, to start.
