Happy Thanksgiving 2017!
Thanksgiving is a holiday about being thankful for all of the things we have in our lives: a home, a family, friends, and of course food. Food is an equalizer in many ways – no matter what our background, we can unite around a table full of delicious things to eat. Plus, food can tell us stories about different families, cultures, and experiences from around the world.
This year, I’ve compiled a list of books about food and cookbooks so that you can expand your food horizons. Maybe you only feel comfortable tweaking a familiar family favorite, or maybe you’ll branch out and try something completely different! Plus, cooking with family and friends can be a great activity to do together as the months get colder.
However you are spending your holiday, may it be a safe and happy one!
