I’m thinking about our Thanksgiving menu and you know what I love about this holiday…? It’s “American” in the best sense. Whatever country you came from to get to this country, and whatever culinary traditions you brought with you, rest assured, the Thanksgiving dinner table welcomes them. It’s fascinating how Italians, Greeks, Mexicans, Tahitians, etc. (you name ‘em!), have injected their favorite dishes into the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Yes, let’s not leave Koreans out, either. After all, what’s turkey and gravy without kimchi (see pic below :)???
Here’s a fun blog entry from Esther Sung that echoes my sentiments… http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/blogs/editor/2007/11/turkey-with-a-s.html
