SEATTLE - The Year of the Rat begins this weekend and many will partake in Lunar New Year celebrations. The holiday brings together families for feasting and celebrating the start of a new year.

Suji Park, the founder of Suji's Korean Cuisine, is committed to crafting foods that inspire conversation, which she explains is one of the biggest holiday traditions. Korean cuisine includes long noodles that represent a long life, Par says. She also shared the legend that creating beautiful dumplings will lead to beautiful children.
