As I reflect upon my first year blogging about food-centered traditions in What’s For Dinner?, I have definitely learned that a shared meal inspires a connection to communities both past and present. The grains and spices, which seem unique to a place, have already traversed across the globe and been adapted in other landscapes and cultures. These intersections between cuisines are what inspire me, and I hope to continue bringing them to your table. I look forward to learning from you and invite you to share some of your traditions (or suggestions on what you would like me to cover) in the comments.
I would like to thank the bloggers and readers who have shared, commented, and faithfully “liked” my blog in its first year. I wish everyone a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
