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 The Westbury Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions by celebrating the food of Chile by serving completos with a Chile seasoned waffle fry and pumpkin sopapilla. I chose this country because two of our residents are from there.
While making these dishes I learned we are more similar than we think we are.
We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Chile in the process!
