Holiday Feasts: Volumes 1-4
Resolute! A New Year's Celebration
There are so many parties on New Year’s Eve that we thought we'd give you a different opportunity to celebrate the start of a New Year. Plus, Asian holidays are all about the food! So here is a delicious series of hot pot recipes. At the Table, we love New Year's resolutions, because our model is all based on “intention.” And there is no intention greater than the New Year’s Resolution. An intentional conversation about moving into the new year gives you and your guests an opportunity to try new ideas on for size as well as committing to a personal vision for the new year.

The Mother Table hosts our ISI between Passover and EarthDay in the spring, building a bridge from the traditional Passover themes of freedom, deliverance and remembrance to that of Tikkun olam, a Hebrew phrase meaning “repairing the world.” During this interfaith dialogue you and your guests will explore how your belief or non-belief intersects with your care and concern for the environment.
