    On savage shores how indigenous Americans discovered Europe  🎤with Dr Caroline Dodds Pennock.

    On savage shores how indigenous Americans discovered Europe  🎤with Dr Caroline Dodds Pennock.

    Presented by: Rocio Carvajal Food anthropologist, culture & gastronomy educator.



    Episode 85

    This episode features a conversation with Dr Caroline Dodds Pennock about her latest book: On Savage Shores: How Indigenous Americans Discovered Europe combining a critical perspective that questions the historiography, narratives, and consequences of marginalizing the role of indigenous people in the colonial and post-colonial contexts, with a critical view of the complex history of Mexico's formation and the silenced voices and stories that continue to bleed through the cracks of power structures. 



    We talk about the challenges of writing historical narratives about indigenous travelers, the types of historical research will we be looking at in the future, and what are the obstacles that decolonial historical research has to tackle to diversify and enrich present and future scholarship.

    Afromexico: the untold history of slavery in colonial Puebla 🎤with Dr. Pablo Sierra.

    Afromexico: the untold history of slavery in colonial Puebla 🎤with Dr. Pablo Sierra.

    Presented by: Rocio Carvajal Food anthropologist, culture & gastronomy educator.
    Episode 82

    Dr Pablo Sierra’s research contests that blackness is a decidedly foreign concept in the cultural history of the City of Puebla, an idealised urban centre whose narratives about Spanish baroque splendour have silenced the stories and presence of other ethnic groups, namely thousands of enslaved and free afro descendants.
    In this episode, we discuss the rise of Afromexican studies, Puebla’s role in the slave trade, the racialised configuration of the novohispanic society, and the challenges of critical historical research.
    We also talk about the case of an elite Afro-Indigenous couple in colonial Puebla, called Felipe Monsón y Mojica and Juana María de la Cruz that lived in the 17th century and rose to power and wealth as chilli tycoons. Their history reveals incredible details about social mobility, self-empowerment, interracial relations and even Puebla’s intertwined history with piracy in the Caribbean.

    Interview 🎤with photographer, podcaster and author: Shava Cueva

    Presented by: Rocio Carvajal Food anthropologist, culture & gastronomy educator.

    Episode 81

    When Salvador packed his camera and got off to start a journey documenting traditional drinks of Mexico, he didn’t know that his life was about to change forever. This adventure became the beginning of a transformative experience for him and the many lives he has touched.

    In this candid, honest and rich conversation, we discuss his motivations, the creative and personal process behind the making of his book “Beverages of Oaxaca”, social responsibility, the challenges of being a content creator, and he shares advice for those who want to pursue a similar path.

Educational and Fun!

Rocio’s podcasts are educational and fun to listen to. She has a real passion for Mexican gastronomy and culinary traditions that shine through her work. We also took her food tour of Puebla and it was such a joy. Worth every penny and then some. You will eat amazing food while learning all about its rich history and the history of Puebla.

Fermentina ,

Excellent podcast!

Finally: a podcast devoted to Mexican gastronomy! Well researched, interesting and entertaining.
