- Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday because I will forever associate it with the huge annual feast my Korean-American family would throw. Plates of kimchi, kimbap, egg rolls, and loads of banchan would dot the table around T-Day standards like roast turkey, stuffing, and candied yams. In Kayoko's family, her dad would prepare usuzukuri (seen above) for Thanksgiving. Wouldn't it be interesting to get a peek at what other families around the country eat on Thanksgiving? The New York Times shared the stories and photos of the holiday meals of 15 families that speak to their heritage and traditions. I'm thankful for this poignant story.
