Title

Asian-Latino Identity And Cultural Exploration Through Travel…And Food

Description

Cynthia Mari Orozco, Librarian-in-Residence, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, California writes about the role of food in her own identity. "Food is a powerful and subtle way in which communities share their culture, history, and identity with others, essentially a catalyst for storytelling. Food connects us. Food helped me find communities and experiences similar to mine and sparked my curiosity into further exploring my own cultural identity in a global context."

Includes a list of information resources about the foods and cuisines of many different cultures.
