    2019 is the Year of the Pig and for NBC 7 anchor Marianne Kushi's family, it's tradition to celebrate every New Year with a big Japanese-style feast.

    Kushi says the meal often takes a week to prepare and food consists of raw and cooked delicacies like sauteed root vegetables, sashimi, caviars, fermented beans and mochi.

    "It's a tradition that ties generations together 'down to the root,'" Kushi says.
