Ancestral Pots and Cucharamamas: A Personal Journey Through Latin American Cooking
CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK PRESENTS

Ancestral Pots and Cucharamamas: A Personal Journey Through Latin American Cooking
with
Maricel Presilla

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

From roots in medieval Spain, through Mexico, the Caribbean, and South America, the food of Latin America is rich and multi-layered, with techniques and flavors that both distinguish and unify them. Maricel Presilla will take us on her journey into the homes and soup pots of every Latin American country, in search of the cocina criolla, "of the land."  From Brazilian feijoada, to Mexican moles, to the matriarchs of Ecuadorian Andes and their soup spoons or cucharamamas, she will describe the ways that these many cooking heritages are related and yet utterly individual.

Maricel Presilla is a chef, restaurant-owner, and scholar. The James Beard Foundation named her Best Chef in the Mid-Atlantic Region for her work at Cucharamama and Zafra, her two restaurants in Hoboken, N.J. She has a doctorate from New York University in medieval history. It was through her research on medieval Spain that she came to explore the rich, multi-layered world of Latin American cooking that she documents in her definitive, recently published book, Gran Cocina Latina.

A reception featuring dishes from Maricel's new book, Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America (W.W. Norton, 2012) will precede the lecture.
