Take Taste Buds on a Trip Around the World This Holiday Season
Date:12/5/2008

and Chinese ingredients into a preparation that's traditionally Italian. Guests can practice their diplomacy as they serve themselves and have fun "making" the dish, by mixing up their own noodles and ragu topping.

From Africa to Asia, there are dozens of internationally-inspired recipes that can turn a "hum drum" traditional soiree into an international affair. Take taste buds on a trip around the world with a "pork passport" stamped with delicious dishes like these:

-- Red Beans and Rice with Ham Hocks (Africa) -- using traditional African ingredients such as beans, rice and ham hocks, this dish is perfect for Kwanzaa, a week-long holiday that celebrates the traditional African values of family, community responsibility, commerce and self-improvement.

-- Hallacas (South America) -- a lunchtime Latin Christmas feast finds South American families gathering to enjoy "hallacas," similar to American tamales or fajitas. Hallacas are composed of pork, olives, raisins and spices in a long bread.

-- Jiaozi (Asia) -- a type of dumpling that typically consists of ground pork, the hallmark ingredient during the most important Chinese holiday, Chinese New Year. Because its shape resembles the Chinese Yuanbao (form of money used in ancient times), eating Jiazi means wealth in the coming year.

Invite the World Home

The National Pork Board, Common Threads and Stephanie Izard agree that creating ethnic dishes at home is a fun way for families to spend time together, learn about other cultures and even start new family traditions.

"Food unites us," explains Izard. "Simply preparing and sharing a meal with others, particularly at the holidays, is a powerful way to bridge cultural boundaries and strengthen our bond as a global family."
