 h1. Dear readers,

 Reading [/books/bookexcerpts/gringa?utmsource=NL20091230&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Gringa&utmcampaign=NewYears "the excerpt"] (published this week on Culinate) of Melissa Hart's memoir Gringa, you get a taste of cross-cultural connectedness — via beefy tamales, famed chicken mole, and limp quesadillas. It's a pull-you-in kind of read, and you may find yourself wanting to order the book immediately. (Remember, if you do order it via Culinate  from Amazon or Powell's before midnight on December 31, you'll [/articles/ourtable/FoodBankDonation?utmsource=NL20091230&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Foodbankbenefit&utmcampaign=NewYears benefit] Feeding America — and we thank you for that.)

 Speaking of cultural connections, check out the [/articles/culinate8/globalnewyearfoods?utmsource=NL20091230&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=NewYears8&utmcampaign=NewYears piece] Christina Eng wrote for Culinate a year ago on traditional new year's foods from around the globe. A lot can change in a year, but celebration foods — not so much.

 So 12 grapes for all! And a happy new year, too.
