Welcome to the blog of Maria Baez Kijac. Here I will post my ideas about cooking, history, and life, all from a Latin American perspective.
I hope to demonstrate the degree to which native foods from the Americas have changed the way the whole world eats. I will also show how those foods have evolved in their lands of origin, along with how foods and new traditions introduced to the Americas have been incorporated into Latin American cuisine.
I will also talk about foods important to the Americas that never really "left home."
In the meantime, you can find my book, The South American Table.
