Happy Thanksgiving!


This 2019 article by Petula Dvorak for The Longview News Journal is the perfect Thanksgiving read: For immigrant families, Thanksgiving blends the old and the new. How very American.

"It is important, the meal. Because, for many immigrants, there were no cousins and grandparents and aunts nearby, no gathering after dinner to watch football."

And, even more important: Thanksgiving is "nonreligious, nonpolitical — hopefully — and like America, adaptable."

The article is ripe with food stories from the Czech Republic to Vietnam. You'll be inspired to add some new dishes to the table inspired by your own immigrant roots.
