Celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, Thanksgiving is a celebration of the Native Americans and Pilgrim’s giving thanks for nature’s bounty. In fact, during this “first” Thanksgiving, Pilgrims and Native Americans worked side by side to hunt and prepare food as equals and friends. Their friendship and cooperation was yet another thing for which to be thankful.
Today, when we think of Thanksgiving, images of American football, pumpkin pie, turkey dinner and sweet potatoes come to mind. As a holiday that surpasses Christmas in the United States, Eric and Christine Theze of La Boheme will be bringing a taste of Thanksgiving to Waterford this year.
Christine, who is originally from Chappaqua, New York, has lived in Ireland for the last 15 years and wanted to relive the authentic Thanksgiving feast. According to Christine, “Because I’ve been out of the States for so long I genuinely yearned for a traditional turkey and all the trimmings Thanksgiving feast. That is why we decided to offer it to our guests”.
“Thanksgiving evokes such wonderful memories for me and I wanted Waterford diners to experience not just the food, but the atmosphere, the tradition and the heritage of Thanksgiving at La Boheme”.
Chef and Proprietor Eric Theze, will be preparing a Thanksgiving feast of turkey, sweet potato, and all the trimmings on Thursday, November 25th.
In fact the run up to Christmas will be peppered with a host of themed evenings at La Boheme. Thursdays in December will be full of festive fun and cheer as melodic Carol singers provide the choral accompaniment throughout the evening and New Year’s Eve ups the tempo with a fantastic menu and live music.
