New Year’s Day Traditions

Rice, Beans & Greens. Minneapolis, Minnesota. January 1, 2017: Photo by Christopher Pollard

As a Minnesotan with southern roots, New Year’s Day to me means rice, beans and greens. I was raised on the stuff thanks to my Grandma Pollard, an 89 year old Georgia native.

I wasn’t able to make it back home to enjoy my family’s annual feast. Fortunately, I know a guy who whips up a scrumptious bowl of tradition.

Thanks Kirk & Liz.

Breaking Bread is a Wonderful Thing

This was an extraordinary episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. I like to imagine that if my father and I had more time, we too would be eating Bun Cha in Hanoi – talking about his time in Vietnam during the war and how peace with your former enemy is a wonderful thing.
