¡A Cocinar! Cooking Teach-In: Decolonize Your Diet

Share

John F. Kennedy University
100 Ellinwood Way
Room N 358
Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

November 17, 2016 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

John F. Kennedy University's Undergraduate Success Center invites you to ¡A Cocinar! Cooking Teach-In featuring Dr. Luz Calvo and Dr. Catrióna Rueda Esquibel, authors of Decolonize Your Diet.

More than just a cookbook, Decolonize Your Diet redefines what is meant by "traditional" Mexican food by reaching back through hundreds of years of history to reclaim heritage crops as a source of protection from modern diseases of development.

Authors Dr. Luz Calvo and Dr. Catrióna Rueda Esquibel are life partners; when Luz was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, they both radically changed their diets and began seeking out recipes featuring healthy vegetarian Mexican foods.

They promote a diet that is rich in plants indigenous to the Americas (corn, beans, squash, greens, herbs, and seeds).

Book reading begins at 5 pm. A Cooking demonstration will follow.
