The Township Senior Living Culinary Honors Hispanic Heritage Month

Category: Senior Living

Author: Sean Jensen, Culinary Director

In 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law a week-long celebration of the contributions and influences Hispanic Americans have made on the culture and history of the United States. This observance was expanded from a week to a month by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, to begin on September 15th, which recognizes the start of the Mexican War for Independence. All US presidents since 1988 have given a Presidential Proclamation to mark this historic date.

Today, there are roughly 63 million Hispanics living in the United States, that make up 19% of the population. They come from such diverse countries and bring with them unique and different cuisines.

At The Township Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions by celebrating the food of Cuba by serving Ropa Vieja. I chose this country because my stepfather is from there.

Through this culinary experience, I learned that Cuban culture makes the most of every ingredient.

We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Cuba in the process!
