For immigrants and kids of immigrants, Thanksgiving can get weird. Growing up (and even now as an adult) we never really celebrated it and to this day, I’m usually alone or with one or two people. This week we’re talking with New York Times Cooking journalist Yewande Komolafe about her experience with Thanksgiving as a Nigerian immigrant and what the holidays looks like for her now. She also shares recipes that are great for a crowd of one or two for those of you keeping it low-key this year.
In This Episode We’ll Cover:
- How Yewande’s incredible food scientist mom inspired her to work in the food industry
- Megan Thee Stallion’s Hottie Sauce Chicken Sandwich from Popeyes
- How Yewande honors Nigerian culture through cooking
- Yewande’s advice for anyone who is spending the holidays alone or with just a couple guests
- Recipe recs & MORE!
