Friday Feature: Flavors from Home by Aimee Zaring

Flavors Flavors from Home: Refugees in Kentucky Share Their Stories and Comfort Foods, combines client stories in their own words with a recipe that remind them of home.

Across cultures, few things create more powerful connections than telling stories and sharing food.  Click here to read one story from a Cuban political asylee and get his family recipe for comfort food Cuban style.

As these individuals and their families struggle to adapt to a new culture, the kitchen often becomes one of the few places where they are able to return “home.” Preparing native cuisine is one way they can find comfort in an unfamiliar land, retain their customs, reconnect with their past, and preserve a sense of identity.

(On occasional Fridays we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
