Hello Trojans! With midterms wrapping up and the temperature cooling down everywhere except for LA, we all know what time of year is approaching—holiday season! And finals… but before we face the dreadful end of the semester, we have Thanksgiving to look forward to.

Having grown up in a Chinese American household, I spent my childhood Thanksgivings eating hot pot and my dad’s special salted duck dish. While I’ll be spending my Thanksgiving this year with an all-American turkey dinner, here are some recipes for my favorite Asian dishes should you decide to celebrate Thanksgiving the Asian American way:
