Kwanzaa Culinarians

What is Kwanzaa Culinarians? A group of food bloggers of African descent working  together to share recipes and stories celebrating Kwanzaa. It's a project that I'm really excited about and so looking forward to collaborating with several other food bloggers.

Sanura Weathers of My Life Runs On Food, came up with the idea. Such a creative lady! Also working on the project are Bren Herrera of Flanboyant Eats, Chrystal Baker of The Duo Dishes,  and Shelley Chapman of Eat. Relate. Love. What a talented group! And there are many more bloggers, writers, and foodies contributing to this new and delicious endeavor.

Besides sharing recipes, we're recognizing food-related influencers with thought-provoking stories and discussions within Kwanzaa’s principles of supporting the African Diaspora community.

The website just launched this week. Each day in December,  you'll find at least one new food story. On each day of Kwanzaa, December 26 - January 1, there will be several food stories representing that day's Principle.

We hope that everyone will join along, even if you don't celebrate Kwanzaa. While I've attended a few Kwanzaa celebrations, it was not something that I or that most of us celebrated at home on a regular basis.

However, we all appreciate the 7 Principles of Kwanzaa, and community coming together to celebrate. And what brings people together more easily than food? Not much. So let's add some more joy, tasty food, and a bit of reflection to the holiday season!
