Preparing dishes that bring back good childhood memories not only helps me feel more connected to my family in Mexico, it’s also a huge opportunity to pass on my heritage to my family in the United States. We often choose dishes together and make the list. My kids help me buy the ingredients, they learn their names in Spanish, and then help me prepare them at home. I make sure I give them responsibilities that are appropriate for their ages. My youngest can wash the tomatoes and vegetables, while my oldest helps me with the mixture and in preparing the dish.

panic kitchens; because it lends dishes, from the traditional to the contemporary, that authentic flavor that helps Hispanics everywhere bring that back-home flavor into their kitchens – and their hearts.

For Hispanics, food does much more than nourish the body; it unites families, warms hearts and transcends the limits of geography. Latinos are nearly twice as likely to perceive food as being central to maintaining family unity1.

Even for those born in the U.S., recipes like Bistec de Res (pan fried beef steaks) – a staple in many Hispanic homes – is a go-to meal that makes them feel closer to their roots. Knorr is another staple in His-
