Hello again! It took me a little longer than expected to put up this post, due to the influx of submissions at the eleventh hour, but here it is!
At the beginning of February, I organized a Chinese New Year Virtual Potluck as a fun way to both celebrate Chinese New Year and to get readers cooking from The Chinese Takeout Cookbook.

In addition, they would be entered in a drawing for other great prizes, including a Le Creuset French oven, set of 6 Random House cookbooks, GrubKit recipe kits, and Edgeware graters.
The turnout was even better than expected: 41 of you wonderful bloggers cooked, photographed, and shared your thoughts on 7 dishes from The Chinese Takeout Cookbook for Chinese New Year.
