One of the most interesting things about the food of the African Diaspora is how closely it connects its members to one another and how little the members of the Diaspora realize it. They often deny it. Most Dominicans, African-Americans, or Brazilians would deny their close cultural connections, but they do exist. My aim with this blog is to explore those connections and help others (myself included) incorporate more of what brings those groups together into their own cooking repertoires. Food and Identity really, that’s what I hope to explore. The African Diaspora is begging for attention. I plan to give it as much attention as possible.
