Maybe it's the Chinese food your family orders before church on Christmas Eve. Or the large spread of hors d'oeuvres you have when you get home. Your most treasured food memory may be the leftover pie crust your mom flattened out and coated with cinnamon and sugar, baking it in a still-hot oven just for you.
That's the kind of thing we want to feature in our annual reader-submitted holiday issue of Taste. We're not looking for exact recipes this year, but rather any fondly remembered holiday tradition, morsel or story that has to do with food.
Send your submissions by Nov. 1, and we'll publish a selection in our December issue. Keep them brief; include a photo if you have one. To submit, email email@example.com and put HOLIDAY TRADITIONS in the subject line. Or send mail to Tampa Bay Times, Taste Holiday Traditions, 490 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. For all submissions, include your full name, city of residence and a phone number or email address in case we have questions. (Your phone number and email address will not be published.)
