How does a 1st generation Korean family do Thanksgiving? I remember the first few times, my parents and I quizzically poking at dry cafeteria turkey breast and grimacing at the new herb flavors in the stuffing. I remember my uncle good-naturedly trying to swallow down mashed potatoes on his first Thanksgiving with us, then eventually caving in and asking for some kimchi to go with it.
However, as the years passed and the more America we absorbed, we learned to adore this holiday and its feasting. And we have blended it with some Korean favorites, which actually go really well with the more traditional dishes.
