Illyanna Maisonet is a force. She's a powerful writer and an incredible chef. Diasporican is a deeply personal collection of recipes that greatly expanded my familiarity with foods from the Puerto Rican Diaspora. I love that Maisonet doesn't shy away discussing the destructive influences of colonialism and includes headers like "Why the 2:1 Ratio Is Bullshit." I can't wait to continue cooking my way through the many, many recipes I've bookmarked! [Adrienne]
