for 

Dame Sandra Gutierrez' talk on

 Spain and the  Food of the Nuevo South

and 

Lunch at Jaleo Crystal City
 

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 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 Gutierrez 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 (North Carolina) News, she won LDEI’s 2017 M.F.K. Fisher Award grand prize of $1,000. Sandra is a member of the North Carolina Chapter of LDEI.
