Ecuador Tamale

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My object is use for holidays event, it is a food traditionally to eat during holidays event and it’s called ecuadorian tamale. My grandma makes the food and send us some or my mom and my aunt would make some a day before the holiday. My object came from Ecuador and then was taught to my family and make it on certain days mostly when its cold. I learn from this food when i was 6 years old my mom and my aunt would make it every thanksgiving and christmas. I choose this object because it meant a lot for my great grandma and great grandpa and we follow the recipe to remember them. This object makes me feel that all of my problems and stress are gone for that moment And enjoy the taste and cheese it has. It also feels like all of my family are together and having fun.
