Latin American Foodways From Brazil to Mexico


Turrón de Doña Pepa, recipe below

The following is a prerecorded radio interview I did on NPR Wisconsin Public Radio's show Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders. On Friday they feature a food show in which I talked about Latin American foodways. The show starts with a discussion about Peru's colonial history, slavery, and food then the host ask me how my interest in Latin American history began. (original air date October 8, 2010)
