Join us for
an evening with Illyanna Maisonet to discuss her book, “Diasporican: A Puerto Rican Cookbook.” Described as a “delicious journey through purpose, place, and
the power of food” by Jose Andres, Diasporican
is a visual record of Puerto Rican food, ingredients, and techniques. Illyanna traces the island’s
flavor traditions to the Taino, Spanish, African and even United States’
cultures that created it. These dishes, shaped by geography, immigration and
colonization, reflect the ingenuity and diversity of their people. Filled with
travel and food photography, Diasporican reveals how
food connects us to family, history, conflict, and migration.
Registration is encouraged.
