This time of year, the Sunday Supper Movement seems to have even more meaning than usual and I am overcome with emotions thinking about our beginnings and how we have grown over the past two years.

To me, December is all about reflections, family and holiday traditions.

Just last night, I was once again reminded how important the family table is in our home. There is something so special when all the chairs around our kitchen table a filled.  My daughter is home from college for the holidays and she brought her boyfriend with her.  Our table was not only full with food, it was filled with love.  As I stepped away, I couldn’t help but smile as I listened to the laughs coming from the other room.  Our dinner menu was a common one for us, salmon, steak, smashed potatoes and salad. For some reason, it tasted extra delicious because all the seats around the family table were filled.

Just like the kitchen table in our home, the Sunday Supper Movement is full of not only recipes, but also traditions. We love welcoming new faces to our Sunday Supper family table. It is so hard for me to believe that many of the contributors in our group have been together for almost two years. When I look back and reminisce at over 100 #SundaySupper events that are now reaching an audience of over 2 million weekly followers — I am overwhelmed with emotion. The tradition of the Sunday Supper Movement has not only touched the lives of our contributors but those of our followers. It is music to my ears when I open an email and I see these words in print, “I want to say that knowing you has inspired me to step up my family cooking game even more – thank you!”

I am once again adding another leaf to our large table and welcoming Gallo Family Vineyards Around the Sunday Supper Family Table. The Gallo family has built their business around family and traditions. Since brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo began to turn their dream into reality over 80 years ago, the roots of the Gallo family tree have extended deep into the Winery. Today their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren work in the Winery, carrying on the family tradition and values – a strong work ethic, a drive for perfection and a focus on quality.

The Gallo family still believes family ownership is the most effective way for the Winery to continue as a world leader in the wine industry. Today, E. & J. Gallo Winery is the world’s largest family-owned winery and the largest exporter of California wine. Just like the Sunday Supper Team, Gallo believes family is more than simply a group of relatives. It’s anyone you share a common bond with. And today, you don’t just have one family. You have many. Whether it’s your blood relatives, best girlfriends, your co-workers, or those you virtually break bread with. These are your other families. And it’s about time we celebrated them with their own family crest!

It is an honor to virtually break bread with Gallo Family Vineyards this Sunday Supper and to introduce you to our Sunday Supper Movement Family Crest. You can create your own Family Crest here.
