A Thanksgiving Menu

Maria Konecsny

Thanksgiving, though often thought of as an American tradition, is celebrated in many cultures around the world in different forms including Erntedankfest in Germany. It has its roots in giving thanks to Mother Earth for the main harvest of the year. Autumn marks the time when a lot of vegetables are harvested for storage to get a family through the cold winter months – think potatoes, pumpkins, onions, cabbages.

It's also the time when the main crops of tomatoes, capsicum, lettuces, beans and many other vegetables have been harvested, the plants are coming to the ends of their life cycle and the hard work of preserving and storing away has been done. An occasion to mark.

Our family comes together every year for Thanksgiving. We share a beautiful meal together in the garden, but before we start, we go around the table and we each, young and old, give thanks for the year gone past in our own special way. Some of us give thanks for the food we are about to eat, others give thanks for their pets or the new LEGO they received for their recent birthday; we all give thanks for each other and for being able to come together on this one day, every year, to do something as simple as take a moment to give thanks.

And to you, our customers and supporters, we give a big thanks this year in particular. Thank you for your patronage, thank you for continuing to cook and nourish your families with our spices, thank you for sharing the many beautiful dishes you have put on your tables. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!
