The table for a Kwanzaa feast is up to your imagination, but there are a few places to begin. Chicken comes to life with a good marinade, and your favorite seasonings and spices can come out to really make the chicken shine. Shredded jerk chicken becomes the star of the show next to greens, cornbread and even a bit of ham. Great sides like black eyed peas and rice connect the present to the past with ease, and a bit of jalapeno can make these dishes as spicy or mild as you like.

Don’t forget the desserts A sweet potato pie or a pound cake really allows for additions like whipped cream or even ice cream There’s nothing that says you can’t add extra sweetness to the Kwanzaa table.
