La Comida de Puertorriqueño

Alexis Ward

"This series, La Comida de Puertorriqueño, consists of 5 traditional Puerto Rican dishes I love

that I’ve been making an effort to learn how to cook over quarantine. These dishes aren’t just confined to one’s dining room, just anchored onto one’s plate. They’re comforting, filling, evoking a strong sense of pride within the Puerto Rican community and me belonging to that community. These dishes from the sazón, to the olives, to the adobo, fuel who I am: an Afro-Latina Boricua."
