Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’ve always loved the fact that it emphasizes quality time with family, being grateful for blessings in life, and naturally, stuffing myself into a food-induced coma.
But not everyone knows this uniquely American experience. Kang Kim is originally from South Korea, so when AARP asked him to photograph a turkey, stuffing and other Thanksgiving foods for their October/November issue, Kang faced a new challenge. But that didn’t deter him; Kang made a point to explore this tradition deeper and pay respect to the spirit of Thanksgiving.
I think he succeeded, Kang got my stomach grumbling. Now I’m even more excited for Thanksgiving dinner.
How do you like to celebrate the holiday? Any favorite dishes?
