Year of the Rabbit: Ringing in the Chinese New Year

Buns Enter the Year of the Rabbit.

Thursday marks the Chinese New Year, but the celebrations last for over two weeks. (Why don't we adopt that custom? Anyone else with me?) Our Travel section has a look at celebrations here and abroad.

Does it all make you want Chinese food? Thought so.

In honor of the Chinese New Year -- the Year of the Rabbit -- and the Lunar New Year, here are six recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen that will help you celebrate with Asian flair, including these pan-fried pork and scallion mini buns (Sheng jian bao zi).

Ditto. It's Lunar New Year, especially since you're featuring other Asian cultures.

It is Lunar New Year, not Chinese New Year. At least six countries celebrate this new year. They are:
* Chinese
* Japanese
* Korean
* Vietnamese
* Tibetan
* Mongolian
