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 diverse countries and bring with them unique and different cultures and cuisines.
At Chestnut Hill Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions by celebrating the food of Chile. We will be serving pasta de chocolo, the national dish of Chile, Chilean tomato and onion salad, and Chilean pumpkin sopapillas.
I chose this country because of the culture of the food, which has both Indian and European influences. It is very colorful and full of different flavors.
While fixing this dish I learned Chile has a wide variety of fresh seafood that can be bought every morning at their fish markets. Chile is also the largest producer of wines.
We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Chile in the process!
