My rant today though, is not about the early plymouth rockeners or our ignorance towards them. It's about how us as US citizens, are destroying what it is to have an authentic treat. I was looking online today for an authentic spanish rice recipe and all I found were recipes from white American's who probably hadn't ever left their comfortable upper-class neighborhoods. The recipes were pathetic! The more I looked the more I longed to be back in the ghettos of CA or PR eating food made by real latinas. Food that came from the heart and hands. Not food that came from a box and said quick-10 minutes! When I cook I try to be as authentic to the cuisine to which I'm trying to make. It's hard when all you can find are recipes that try and Americanize everything. I know I'm an American but sometimes I want a little bone in my soup. It gives it flavor!
