Father's Day is this Sunday, June 21st and I wanted to share this beautiful piece written by Lolis Eric Elie about his son, Niriko. Elie is from New Orleans and his wife, Béa is from Madagascar - two cultures joining together to raise a child. Read the article, "Feeding Niriko", here from the Southern Foodways Alliance. A very HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all our Springbot Dads :)
