Title: Did Your Abuelita...?

Summary: Social and food traditions are the last to disappear in ethnic populations. Topics covered will demonstrate what traditions – life-cycle, food and more - are still observed in many Hispanic families of Sephardic ancestry – whether that heritage is known, has been lost in history, or is simply denied.
