This Week's Food
1. Tomorrow January 9th and Tuesday January 12th we will be collecting dry goods for La Colaborativa, a Food Bank in Chelsea, in addition to our new monthly giving initiative at Family Dinner.
2. Latkes are in the house! We are starting a series of restaurant collaborations with some of the best joints in Boston. We are kicking it off with Mamaleh's Delicatessen. We will have their items in the shares and there are plenty of add-ons to pick from for next week only.
This year the holidays will likely take a different shape for many folks. They may be simpler, less fussy than in years past, but may also leave people with a hankering for the familiar or struggling with sadness.
Whatever Thanksgiving brings for you, I hope you find something small and simple to enjoy. The company of a dog, a well-buttered roll, a perfect soundtrack. I hope the simple things burrow their way in and you find a way to love lunch.
Recently I have been reading a lot of foodie type books. One might say, ahem, that I have been devouring them.
It is culinary escapism at its absolute finest. You skip from peering into Bourdain’s life as he climbs the rotten, explicative-coated ladder of kitchen hierarchy, to being tucked into Ruth Reichl’s pocket as she dines at hidden Parisian bistros.
Luis and Maria came to the US from their beautiful home town of Toa Alta in Puerto Rico and moved to Framingham. Luis worked in logistics at the TJX company and Maria in community health organizations. They joined the Family Dinner crew in 2018. To Family Dinner they brought their dedication; amazing sense of humor and incredible collection of Superhero/Disney/Pixar paraphernalia.
