May is Asian American Pacific Islander month, or AAPI for short, a time to celebrate the Asian and Pacific Islanders in the United States and their contributions to the history of this country. By recognizing the culture, history, and achievements of Asian American and Pacific Islanders, we can broaden the understanding of their countries and cultures, as well as enhance the appreciation for all that they have given to make this country great.
As is the case with many commemorative months, AAPI originated with Congress. In 1978, Congress passed, and President Jimmy Carter signed into law, a joint resolution declaring a week in May as “Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week.” This was later expanded to a month, and in 1992, May was designated as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.
At Carriage Court Senior Living Hilliard, OH, we will be celebrating by honoring the countries of Korea, Samoa, and Thailand, and the state of Hawaii.
The dishes I am making are Korean bulgogi, beef satay from Thailand, Hawaiian pau pau chicken, and chicken kale moa from Samoa.
I chose these dishes because they all sounded awesome, and I have never made them before.
As a culinary director and chef, I feel we should celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month because it’s important to broaden our culinary pallet beyond our normal comfort zone and try new things.
We are honored to have the opportunity to celebrate these countries, their contributions, and their foods this month! And we would be even more honored if you would join us. Give us a call to learn more about how you can get a seat at the table this month!
