Happy Thanksgiving

Keiko joins me in sending best wishes to you and your families for a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving celebration.

Although Thanksgiving is a unique American holiday not celebrated in Japan, the tradition of expressing thanks to those who offer friendship and support is deeply embedded in my soul.

I have much to be thankful for –– my family, my health, and for the many members of my extended family and friends who has been such an important part of my life for so long. Despite the distance that now separates us, the powerful memories of times we have shared together remind every day of how fortunate I have been to have you as a friends.

With respect and friendship, Paul

  1. Thank you Mom for always making spectacular meals throughout the years! Thanksgiving won’t be the same without your special dishes. A heartfelt thanks to you on this day, for being my guide, my teacher and my father. Happy Thanksgiving Dad!

    • Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving message.
      Thanksgiving was always a special time with many wonderful memories … grand meals and good times with large groups of family and friends. The favorite remembrance is bringing my daughters to New York City for a stay in the Plaza Hotel’s penthouse suite, exploring its “secret” Eloise passages, and enjoying grandstand seats at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
      This year Keiko and I had Thanksgiving dinner at a small cafe.  Imported turkey from the U.S. with all the trimmings.  It was our first real Thanksgiving meal since 2018!
      Next up on the “foodie” epicurean calendar is preparing my Feast of the Seven Fishes for a Christmas celebration.  We will treat a few guests to an authentic Sicilian dining experience on the 25th.

        • For my non-paisano blog readers, scungilli is the Neapolitan dialect word for conch, a mollusc like an oversized sea snail, considered an Italian delicacy. It has a texture and taste similar to calamari and rather than hunt for it here, I will use calamari,served simply in my seafood antipasto with some garlic, sliced onion, red pepper flakes,lemon, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.
          I will share my Feast of the Seven Fishes menu in a future post and hope you will enjoy the experience. Mangiare!
