A new addition to the kitchen library… It’s a beast of a cookbook but a beast we’re willing to take down bit by bit…
World expert on the food of Latin America, author, and chef Maricel Presilla is this week’s guest on Taste Matters. Tune in for a lively conversation about the culture, cuisine and culinary landscape of Latin America. Find out how she managed to write the personal yet encyclopedic award-winning book “Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America”. Learn how all the different Latin American cuisines are part of a larger constellation, and find out why Maricel is not a fan of deconstruction in food. This program was sponsored by 360 Cookware.
“My book, “Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America”, is a product of the US, because I could buy every ingredient I needed in a short distance from my home in New Jersey.” [08:05]
“Deconstruction doesn’t work for me. Some foods require a matrix and there’s a synergy when the elements are combined.” [23:00]
“You have to think about Latin America food as part of a constellation.” [28:00]

Poetry and folk singing at McSorley’s Saloon. New York, 1959.

Let’s all sing.
A couple hours late for a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!” but this is how we’d spend a day claimed for drinking too much and general foolishness.
