Holidays are the best
Cooking for the holidays is awesome. It goes beyond cooking for Christmas or Thanksgiving, where the menu is pre-set and expected. After all, what is Christmas dinner without roast beast. What is Thanksgiving without Turkey? (Actually, the latter was pretty awesome when I was a vegetarian. )
It’s fun to cook for non-traditional holidays. It’s important to be respectful of the culture that “owns ” the holiday. Don’t exploit stereotypes. Instead, learn about the culture, figure out why the day is important and what food traditions go with the holiday.
What Holidays do you cook for?
Just an example of a few I cook for through the year.
Chinese New Year,
Our Next Holiday
If you would like to cook along with us, it makes sense to make sure you have the following in your
Rice Wine Vinegar
You’ll only need small amounts of many of these. So stocking them once will mean you’ll have plenty for future meals. You might even add them into a special bin in your cupboard, identified as an “Asian Cooking Kit”
I promise it will be worth it to be ready.
