A Recipe for Ujima on Kwanzaa Culinarians

Today is the third day of Kwanzaa. While I know that many people don't celebrate the holiday or think it's even a "real" holiday, I don't believe that it should be ignored. Why? Well, I may not agree on many ideas espoused by the founder, Dr. Maulana Karenga, I think he's done a great thing here. By creating a celebration focused on principles, I think he's adding a grounding aspect to a season that often can be filled with excess (financial or otherwise).

I was very flattered to be asked to write a piece for the Kwanzaa Culinarians site for today's Kwanzaa principle of Ujima.

Ujima stands for Collective Work and Responsibility.

Here's a link to my post featuring one of my favorite Antiguan dishes and a discussion of how it relates to Ujima.
