Here's a challenge: Name one thing more unifying and divisive than food. Whether it's pungent kimchi, pickled herring, or liver-and-giblet-spiked dirty rice, there are dishes that make some sigh with satisfaction while sparking nausea in others. The holiday season is a good reminder of the many different food traditions celebrated in Southern California now—and throughout the rest of the year.
