Puerto Rico


Pernil is important to me and my family because it is a tradition for my great grandmother to make pernil at any special occasion like Thanksgiving, Baby Showers, Birthdays, etc. My great grandmother also makes pernil to show her love and appreciation on Thanksgiving.In my family our food is used to represent our love and that where we came from(Puerto Rico) will always have a special place in our hearts.
