SPAIN AND THE FOOD OF THE NUEVO SOUTH
Spanish colonizers brought forth ingredients, techniques, and culinary language that helped shape what we now recognize as both Southern and Latin American foodways. Sandra Gutierrez (NC) will share how Spanish culinary influences made it possible for Latin and Southern foodways to meld. All the while, you will enjoy a traditional Spanish meal made with the most prized ingredients at the base of the new Southern-Latino table. Sandra is the author of four books including The New Southern-Latino Table; Latin American Street Food: The Best Flavors of Markets, Beaches, and Roadside Stands from Mexico to Argentina; and Empanadas: The Hand-Held Pies of Latin America. A former food editor of the Cary (NC) News, she won LDEI's 2017 M.F.K. Fisher Award grand prize of $1,000.
