Cedar Knolls, N.J., October 5, 2022 – It’s Hispanic Heritage Month – a time to celebrate the history, culture and influence of the Latino community. In honor of this momentous month, Eggland’s Best has teamed up with SheKnows to host a special virtual event to demonstrate a traditional Hispanic dish that’s sure to become a household favorite and share ways families can pay tribute to their Hispanic heritage.
SK Conversations: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month en la Cocina will be taking place virtually on Thursday, October 6 at 12pmET/9am PT. To sign up for the event, RSVP here. Viewers will follow along as Dalina Soto, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Founder of Your Latina Nutritionist, creates the traditional Hispanic dish, Mangú, and shares ways families can honor their Hispanic heritage and pay tribute to those that came before us.
“As a proud Dominican-American, I often share the love of my culture through the many diverse and flavorful dishes that my family has made for generations,” said Soto. “Among the many nutritious ingredients we use, eggs are a universal staple within many Latin cultures since they are a versatile and affordable source of high-quality protein and other nutrients that all families can feel good about. When it comes to eggs, I always choose Eggland’s Best eggs because they have extra nutrition such as six times more Vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s and Vitamin B12 and 10 times more Vitamin E compared to ordinary eggs.”
As Dalina shares her recipe, she will be joined by Chef Xenia Zee who will also pay tribute to her Latin culture through conversation and recipes. The event will also include a special fireside chat featuring Chef, Cookbook Author and Television Host Pati Jinich and the Editor-and-Chief of SheKnows, Eugenia Richman. From their favorite recipes to the joy of passing down family traditions from one generation to the next, these Latina women will inspire event attendees with special stories of their Hispanic roots.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with SheKnows this Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate traditional Hispanic recipes like Mangú that feature delicious and nutritious Eggland’s Best eggs,” said Kurt Misialek, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “We are committed to providing the highest quality egg possible with superior nutrition, taste and freshness that can nourish cultures and communities alike.”
Eggland’s Best eggs are a delicious and nutritious ingredient to incorporate into any meal. Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain 25% less saturated fat, six times more Vitamin D, more than double the Vitamin B12 and Omega-3s and ten times more Vitamin E.
