Phoenix foodies share their untraditional holiday food traditions

Festive feasting is one of the highlights of the Christmas season. Many people in the United States traditionally enjoy a succulent ham or golden turkey, and popular culture has endorsed these dishes. But there are also those who enjoy food that speak of their heritage and family traditions. Festive dining is a big part of the holiday gatherings. It just wouldn’t be the holidays without this one special dish that is only available at this time of year. For me it’s corned beef and cabbage. The aroma is one that I will always associate with December 25th. But the menu doesn’t stop there. My family always has red cabbage steamed with sauerkraut and Mama Stanberg’s pink cranberry relish. Many of our dishes are even bright pink to create the perfect warm bag to melt butter, creamy mashed potatoes, perfectly fluffed with sparkling red wine. Delicious, not exactly the universal Christmas dish. In this week’s episode of Valley 101, I asked some of Phoenix’s gourmets to share their untraditional food traditions.
