The Parkway Senior Living Culinary Honors Hispanic Heritage Month

Category: Senior Living

Author: Robert Setina, 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 diverse countries and bring with them unique and different cultures and cuisines.

At The Parkway Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions by celebrating the food of Mexico, Cuba, and Peru by serving brisket tacos, Cuban sandwiches, and Tres leche cake.

I chose these countries because they are some with the most flavorful dishes and the most approachable for the residents of the community. I am also very familiar with the cuisine of the countries I chose.

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