In Ching-In and Cassie’s Family, Cultural Differences are Navigated in the Kitchen
1. Making Dumplings (Ching-In)
We began our relationship by eating together.
Cassie courted me by offering to pick up extra goat milk from the raw milk farm. I made avocado and berry smoothies out of the produce I received as part of a year-round produce-buying cooperative my housing co-op participated in. She surprised me with homemade pie. Eventually, we were making lettuce wraps and vegetable stir-fry together a few times a week.
