[Op-ED]: Alimenten sus memorias navideñas

El lunes pasado hablé por teléfono con mi amiga Milagros, una inmigrante dominicana, nacionalizada estadounidense, que hace un año se mudó a Barcelona por amor.

Estas serán las segundas Navidades que Milagros pasa lejos de su familia, en Miami.  Y aunque en España tiene buenos amigos, reconoce que no será lo mismo. “En Miami comeríamos el lechón asado entero, y aquí, como somos pocos, cocinaremos solo una pata al horno”, me comentó, melancólica.

[Op-ED]: Feeding Your Christmas Memories

Last Monday I spoke on the phone with my friend Milagros, a Dominican naturalized American, who a year ago moved from Miami to Barcelona for love.

This is the second time Milagros celebrates Christmas in Spain. And although in Spain she has some good friends, a part from his boyfriend, she admits it’s not the same.
"In Miami we would eat a whole lechón asado (a suckling pig) roasted in a wood fire, while in Barcelona, as we are only 8 at the table, we will just cook a pig leg in the oven,"  she said. Her voice sounded melancholic.

Colombian Irish Christmas. Christmas memories and tastes

My father’s side of the family was very traditional with the foods they served during Christmas. Everyone would gather at my Aunt’s home that usually held celebrations for 40-50 people annually. 

There would be food as far as the eye can see. You always start off with the turkey and ham. There would usually be 2 to 3 sets of both meats. One or two would be for the dinner table while another would already be sliced and set in a buffet style so everyone would have their fair share.
