The Princeton Senior Living Culinary Honors Hispanic Heritage Month

Category: Senior Living

Author: Josh Sanchez, Culinary Director

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 The Princeton Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions and celebrating the food of Mexico by serving pork pastor and chicken enchiladas. I chose this country because I am half Mexican and feel a strong connection to the cuisine.

I know quite a bit about my heritage and Mexican culture. I am always glad to share my culinary talents and dishes from our neighbors to the south.

We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Mexico in the process!
