Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s a day to stop and remember all the things we have to be thankful for and to spend time eating a lovingly prepared meal with family and friends.
There are different stories about the origins of Thanksgiving, but the one most commonly cited traces the roots of this celebration to 1621 in Plymouth, Massachusetts where the Pilgrims (a group of settlers from England seeking religious freedom) celebrated their first harvest. The Pilgrims feasted and gave thanks with one of the local Native American tribes, who are credited with teaching the Pilgrims where to fish and how to grow corn.
Today in the US, there are more and more secular overtones, but the core of this annual tradition remains spending time around the table with loved ones.
While each family has their favorite Thanksgiving dishes, almost every table is graced with a roasted turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.
Experience Thanksgiving here in Berlin at the Humble Pie pop-up dinner at Roberta kocht (Zionskirchstraße 5, Mitte). We’ll have two seatings on Thursday, 24. November – one at 18:00 and one at 20:30.
