Dishes of the (African) diaspora encompass many regional cuisines, but a set of shared ingredients and methods of preparations root them in a powerful and undeniable legacy. Each cook featured in this story prepared an inherited recipe that signifies identity and reveals a collection of family, community and ancestral wisdoms. 

Dishes of the Diaspora is a project that seeks to resuscitate, share, and pass into the future this vast culinary knowledge, and the powerful wisdoms, rituals, and histories that are invoked.

One kitchen at a time.
