Dietary and subsistence practices say much about a persons culture, but what I remember about holidays and family gatherings is mom cooking in the kitchen and grandma telling her “no that’s not enough butter” and grandpa sneaking me a cookie out of the oven before they were done. The conversations held over a cooking pot of hot food and the times spent in the garden with my father nurturing plants, these extra dimensions of subsistence are what foodways entail. Join me on adventures down forgotten memory lane. My research takes us to far away places and sunny warm environments all over the Caribbean. Through archaeology we reconstruct these life-ways that have been forgotten or never told.
