Shipping calculated at checkout
The Rosetta Notebooks are published as part of an innovative project at the Mexico City restaurant led by Chef Elena Reygadas.
Each volume offers a short, incisive text written by a renowned scholar who explores aspects of food culture, health, and environmental concerns.
Chef Reygadas notes:
I’m convinced that we should also consider our work as cooks beyond its hedonistic function. In a world like ours—devastated by climate change, social inequality,, systemic violence, sexism, racism, and the degradation of political life, to mention just a few of many ills—a restaurant should provide a platform for reflection and positive contributions to society.
Alyshia Gálvez, a cultural and medical anthropologist who is Professor of Latin American and Latino Studies at the City University of New York, excerpts here her 2018 book also titled Eating NAFTA. She links policy decisions made in the US and Mexico in the name of international commerce, to a range of public health consequences and loss of economic independence for people least able to adapt to a system in which they have little-to-no control.
References for further reading are included for anyone interested in deeper examination of these issues.
