To celebrate the Lunar New Year, the Vietnamese gather with their family members, decorate their house and prepare special traditional dishes. A few days before Tet, they cook Banh Chung, which is the essential food and culinary symbol of the Vietnamese New Year. It has a different recipe depending on particular regions and family traditions.

This is the traditional cake which is cooked from 4 main ingredients: the “dong” leaves, glutinous rice, mung beans and pork.
