Driving through my small village on the North Shore of Long Island, something entered my mind, certainly something that I have thought about before.
There is a food craze today in society. People from many cultures use food as a way of gathering with family and friends. Food is the center of most celebrations, traditions and religious holidays. Italians, traditionally enjoy “the “Feast of the Seven Fishes” on Christmas Eve. When the Chinese celebrate their New Year, traditionally spring rolls, dumplings and fish
are on the table. Hot dogs and hamburgers are a staple item at a Summer barbecue in America. African Americans enjoy catfish, jerk chicken and collard greens for Kwanzaa. The Jewish holidays are always associated with matzah ball soup, blintzes and gefilte fish. South Asians enjoy Dahi vada (lentil dumplings) in a spicy yogurt sauce during Ramadan. Millennials are focused on experiencing every type of cuisine and seek out the healthy alternatives at a fair price.
