Comida Latina is a database of images, texts, maps, and more related to food, women, culture, and identity. The work on this project started in 2010 with an exploration of the transnational forces that bring Latino foods to New York City, and the research has grown to become the site you are now exploring. Comida Latina is the beginning of a conversation about food and cultural identity, and as such, it is a visible way of showcasing the transformative power of food to bridge cultures.
