Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month


Hispanic heritage month is a special time in the U.S., recognizing the contributions of the Latin people and celebrating our culture and heritage. It begins on September 15, which is the anniversary of independence for five Latin countries and lasts through October 15. During this month, we also celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day (September 16) with parades, festivals and large family gatherings.

I grew up learning about my culture and our family traditions through food. All of my family reunions centered around being in the kitchen making food and enjoying meals at the table. Each dish, each ingredient, has a story behind it and I still use recipes and techniques that were passed down to me by my mom and grandmother. For me, it’s a way of paying respect to my legacy and where I come from. I’m so fortunate that I get to continue sharing my traditions and culture not only with my family and friends, but also with the guests who eat at my restaurants and make my recipes at home. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I want to share a recipe, inspired by my mom’s recipe, that has always been one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy!
