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 Carriage Court Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions and celebrating the food of Nicaragua by serving arroz con pollo and pan-seared pork ribeye, topped with homemade chimichurri. I chose this country because I was struck by how beautiful and unique the food presentation is.
While researching and making these dishes I learned they create a remarkable flavor profile using spices in their recipes.
We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Nicaragua in the process!
