With the year coming to a close, I’m thinking a lot about holidays, and how to celebrate another year that has passed.  I’m looking forward to the upcoming Kwanzaa holiday, which begins December 26th, to celebrate my African heritage, and enjoy time with family and friends.  I think my Jerk Chicken recipe from Soul of a New Cuisine would be a perfect centerpiece for your meal.
Kwanzaa has seven principles, one of which, umoja, means unity.  You honor umoja when you bring your family and community together for the feast of Kwanzaa this year, and what better way to do it than share good food with loved ones.
