Chef María Mercedes Grubb and writer Von Diaz on the food of Puerto Rico

We’re exploring the food of Puerto Rico with chef María Mercedes Grubb joining from San Juan and writer and professor of food studies, Von Diaz. Von’s cookbook, Coconuts & Collards, is a beautiful expression of the island. Maria and Von help us understand the context behind a cuisine that endures despite a legacy of colonialism and a very complex food system. Also this hour, listeners share their connections to the food of the island.
