For most of this century the term “melting pot” has been in use to refer to the assimilation of many cultures into American society.

It’s made up of individual ingredients that stand on their unique contribution to the pot – the meat and the potatoes and the vegetables each make their own statement – and together, they comprise a beautiful meal.
