page Foods That Bring Luck in the New Year
By Sandra Garson
There’s more to good luck than a rabbit’s foot or four-leaf clover. As the year changes, we pull out all our superstitions about super foods to eat on New Year’s Eve and Day to supersize our chances in the year ahead. In Peru, for example, people believe eating gold-colored food like papas a la huanchaina, potatoes colored by turmeric or a local saffron-like spice called tadillo, will bring money to their pocket. People in the South serve cornbread for the same reason. Here are some of the New Year’s most popular and traditional lucky foods.

As a longtime student of Tibetan Buddhism and well-known cook for Dharma centers from Maine to Mongolia, she became the first food historian to explore the Buddha’s influence on how the world now eats. This led to exploration of more religious beliefs about food.
