Imagine moving away from your homeland to a new country where you meet new people, encounter new traditions and new food. While it’s exciting to experience and explore new opportunities it’s also hard to leave behind your home and the traditions that you have grown up with. In our latest culinary moments video two brothers talk about how their immigrant parents were able to bring an entire community together over food and around the table. A simple meal has the power to easily bring a sense of happiness, comfort and home to a group of people, whether they are family or not.
Indulging in traditional Jamaican dishes like rice and peas, oxtail and jerk chicken allowed this family to make new connections, create new friendships and establish a sense of belonging in a new community. Sharing food and telling stories around the table is a wonderful way to relax, unwind and have a good time with friends, family and neighbors. For these brothers these food memories are a highlight of their childhood years and an experience they will never forget.
