Osechi

Photo 2 of 4: Japanese American Oshogatsu 2021

I looked forward to going to my Nisei grandparents’ home every year for New Year’s Day. Grandma always had a table full of food. After they passed we joined a larger extended family gathering. Due to the pandemic we could not have our usual gathering so we had a smaller gathering with immediate family. I prepared traditional osechi and some Japanese American favorites like maki and Inari zushi, teriyaki chicken, cha shu, and tempura. As a half-JA Yonsei I am proud to keep the tradition of celebrating New Year alive.
