This Month We’re Celebrating the Afro-Latinx Experience, One Dish at a Time – Reina Gascon-Lopez

For many Latinx folks living in the United States, having a dual identity — one foot in and one foot out of the culture — is a way of life. Navigating that can be difficult, but I find that the simplest way to stay true to my Puerto Rican and Afro-Caribbean roots is through food. I love making dishes that I grew up eating that remind me of loved ones.
