Festive dinners are planned in advance to fill the dinner table with the dishes that look appetizing and where flavors abound. Both the flavors and colorful dishes can be associated with the departed loved ones and specially cooked the way they cooked or liked them. Cherish the person’s memories as you relish the food with your family and friends.
