On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Michael Schaffer
Thanksgiving menus can be a bit of a staid affair: green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows and – of course – a turkey. But for those willing to expand their palates and embrace the new along with the old, the holiday can bring a blend of flavors and traditions. We discuss ways to incorporate traditions from other cultures into this very American holiday and consider how the immigrant experience is reflected in the day’s traditions with local diaspora members from Mexico and Ghana.
