We will never say this enough, but food goes beyond nutrients and calories. When we say that eating is emotional, we are also talking about culture! Many people enjoy being reunited around food with the people they love at mundane times, but also during the Holidays. For sure, we won’t be able to come together as we normally would, but at least we can count on food to bring us wherever we want to be. No matter where you come from, embrace your culture and appreciate the special dishes that it allows you to savor every year. I invite you to ask yourself questions. What is the story behind this food? What is its meaning?
Believe me, you will discover a whole other side of food and you will be even more grateful to have these wonder dishes on your table.
