I’m Making A Holiday Smorgasbord Of Dishes From All My Family’s Different Cultures


It feels surreal that the holiday season is almost here and that means it’s time to start planning a holiday menu, among other things.

For those of us who have stuck close to home consistently since March, time has moved strangely this year. It feels like the year has been centuries long on one hand, and like it’s gone by in a flash on the other.

Yet, here we are. It’s getting colder, the meals are getting carbier, and the changing colors cannot be ignored. We’ve committed to a low-key holiday this year for a number of reasons, but I’ve still been prioritizing the feeling of family.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about the different cultures that make up our family. In our household, we have bits of Colombian, Puerto Rican, Italian, Cuban, and German culture.

Oh, and that’s the shortlist.

It’s quite a lot, but we do feel connected in different ways to all of it. I’ve been thinking about how that could be represented, and here’s what I’ve come up with for our holiday menu.
