Continuities of food practices as cultural and artistic heritage in a transnational context such as that of the exiled Sephardic Jews is also highlighted. This chapter may be linked to a blog entry that I created for the Jewish Studies program at the University of Washington in which I intended to recreate some medieval recipes collected from the archives of the Inquisition. Dos de los platos usados de este modo son la adafina y el almodrote.
This chapter presents the origin and transformations of cacao from a liquid Aztec food to a sweet confection. Through this trajectory students learn about cultures in contact and transculturation in a very tangible way. The chapter also includes text on the chocolate controversy. As a colonial and then a European food, chocolate was the subject of much debate on its purported virtues and evils, on whether it was a female or male food, and furthermore on whether it was solid food or a drink for the purposes of church laws on fasting.

The chapter also discusses the uses of corn alongside chocolate in the preparation of drinks and then moves on to consider the joint centrality of corn in the Aztec and Maya diets, as well as in contemporary Latin America. In this vein, the chapter discusses the importance of corn and chocolate in the making of a typical Colombian breakfast. The chapter presents two case studies on the relationship between geography and food practices. It introduces the concept of the Columbian Exchange and presents the New World foods that were introduced in Europe and from there to other parts of the world.
It also discusses the foods that Europeans introduced into the Americas and the way in which this exchange shaped cultural developments such as that of the cow and horse-centered gauchos and vaqueros. In this vein, the chapter discusses the relations between foodways and ways of life as illustrated by the vaqueros, gauchos, huascos, and charros. Along the same lines, the chapter discusses how whole national cuisines are now identified by New World foods, cases in point being Italy and the tomato, Ireland and the potato, India and the hot chilies.
The chapter further explains the ways in which new crops were introduced in new parts of the world and how, when introduced as monocultures, caused an agricultural failure and starvation that was at the root of massive migratory movements. Some of these migratory movements, such as the failure of the potato crop in Northwestern Spain Galicia , caused many Spaniards to go back to the Americas, this time as poor immigrants.
The chapter discusses some representations of this phenomenon in the cinema of the period, and includes some recipes so that the students can cook them at home while they acquire pertinent vocabulary.
En Chile se ve la influencia de los mapuche, que han dejado sentir su influencia en la cocina. Su importancia se demuestra en su uso en fiestas y ceremoniales. This chapter presents various modes of food preparation in the Hispanic world and relates them to the cultures and histories of different communities. It presents a spectrum that goes from cooking over fire to the lab complexities of modernist cuisine also known as molecular gastronomy.
A related topic is presented in the traditional slaughter of a pig in early winter with all the attendant preservation techniques. The centrality of the pig in Hispanic communities is also considered in light of the ethnic and social considerations presented in the previous chapters.
The poem discloses a space for inhabiting other subjectivities and speaking not on behalf, but rather from the absent point of view of dead migrants. The poem interrogates the complexities of writing an ode from this impossible standpoint, rather than for the dead:. Can there be poetry after Lampedusa, when Lampedusa becomes the symbolic and metonymic stand-in designing this uninterrupted historical trauma in the Mediterranean? Answering this question means to accept taking a responsibility: it means to avoid, at the same time, both the repressively compassionate position of those who unquestionably and unconditionally identify with migrants — forgetting their own privilege and distance — and the racist bad faith of anyone only capable of dis-identifying from them, who reduce the lives of human beings to a security issue, an exceptional state of emergency with no historical roots, or a socio-economic calculation.
Writing poetry after Lampedusa means, in this context, to be able to go beyond both unconditional identification and absolute dis-identification. Border as Method, or the Multiplication of Labour.

There is no guarantee, indeed, that spreading a consciousness of the reiterations of colonial history would automatically lead to the possibility of a response escaping both compassionate repression and the bad faith of European racism.
