This year the Chinese New Year, a very important traditional Chinese holiday, begins on February 3th.  In New York’s Chinatown the festivities carry on for weeks with the neighborhood adorned in red lanterns, lions and dragons parading through the streets, and fire crackers exploding with confetti. According the the Chinese Zodiac, this beings the Year of the Rabbit. And so, to honor the occasion, I made this white rabbit with anise gelatin and vanilla ice cream, which will be served at new year/birthday party this weekend.
