Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Olmsted Culinary Honors Hispanic Heritage Month

Category: Senior Living

Author: Jacqueline Romito, 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 Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Olmsted, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions and celebrating the food of Chile by serving empanada, Chilean tomato salad, flan, and borgona.

I chose this country because I love the variety of food and drink to choose from. I learned that borgona punch is a classic summer drink in Chile.

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