The Thanksgiving Holiday in the US involves a lot of food! Let's take a closer look at what people typically serve in different US regions. 
 
The dataset contains information about what type of dishes are served at Thanksgiving dinners in US households, including type of protein, cranberry, if they use gravy or not, type of sides, pies and dessert, and in which regions they are. Each row of the dataset corresponds to one household. The challenge is to:
 
Task 1
Find the total number of food dishes (protein, cranberry, gravy, sides, pies and dessert) served in each household. 
 
Task 2
Find the average number of dishes served for each US region.
 
Task 3
Determine the total number of pies served for each US region and create a pie chart to show the results in percentage. 
 
BONUS:
What is the most popular combination of side dishes and how many households are serving it?
