Nissan Family Cookbook: A holiday gift to the community
December 23, 2020
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Holiday celebrations feel a little different this year, with more people choosing to gather with a much smaller group of family and friends or come together virtually. What won't change is that Americans will get out pots and pans to cook tasty holiday meals. This holiday season, Nissan's U.S. manufacturing team has introduced the first-ever Nissan Family Cookbook — and made it publicly available as a gift to the community.
With 140 delicious recipes ― from appetizers and soups to main dishes and desserts ― the Nissan Family Cookbook was created with hopes of helping people feel connected to one another, break up the pandemic-induced monotony and make new memories.
"While our team is best known for assembling some of the highest-quality vehicles for consumers, they are also quite crafty in the kitchen," said Steve Marsh, senior vice president, manufacturing, supply chain and purchasing, Nissan North America, Inc. "The kitchen is typically the center of holiday activity. It's where everybody wants to be, and there's no reason why this can't continue, even during these unprecedented times."
Several recipes included in the book carry special meaning:
Christy Boisseau – Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant – Smyrna, Tennessee 'Boss Hogg's Tennessee Swamp Cabbage' (Soups and Salads section) "My dad, Tim 'Boss Hogg' Boisseau, retired from the Smyrna plant a few years ago. His recipe is well-known and I'm happy to keep the family tradition going by sharing it with our Nissan family and neighbors," said Boisseau.
Bill Thompson – Nissan Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant – Canton, Mississippi 'Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast' (Entrees section) "I have a son with special needs that loves to help me cook. He loves bacon and chicken so much that we had to put it together," said Thompson.
Arthur Snyder – Nissan Decherd Powertrain Plant – Decherd, Tennessee 'Apple Crisp' (Desserts section) "Born and raised in Rochester, NY, I grew up surrounded by apple orchards, so I ate a lot of apples. This is my favorite way to enjoy them," said Snyder.
The Nissan Family Cookbook is now available and free to download here.
