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 Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Royalton, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions and celebrating the food of Costa Rica by serving Gallo pinto and fried eggs. I chose this country because I wanted to make a dish that was a daily staple in Costa Rican life.
We learned that Costa Rican food has a totally different focus than what we had thought. It isn’t as Chile centric as other countries in Latin America. In fact, they seem to like foods that are much milder than other countries.
We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Costa Rica in the process!
