Check out this event that puts a spotlight on Puerto Rican Culinary Arts. “El amor entra por la cocina: Cooking and Cultural Identity amongst Puerto Rican Women Living in New York” A multi-media presentation based on a research project about culinary traditions of the Puerto Rican Diaspora conducted by Dr. Nilsa Rodríguez-Jaca in 2010. She interviewed over twenty senior women of our community who have lived in New York City for at least two decades and recovered their stories about food consumption and sharing, and also how this has helped them to maintain a sense of community and cultural identity for over sixty years. Guests Deborah Quiñones (the  Coquito Contessa ) and Chef Julio Rodríguez will also share their culinary experiences.
