Tikoy Recipe: How to Make Filipino Nian Gao

February 12 – February 21, 2021

Learn about the traditions and history of tikoy (a delicacy of steamed glutinous rice cake) in Chinese Filipino Lunar New Year celebrations and try your hand in baking one with this visual, interactive recipe. After you make tikoy, add it to the virtual gallery and share your Lunar New Year traditions to see what other people have made and how they celebrate! This project was created by Angelique De Castro and inspired by her own family memories.
