Que Vivan Los Tamales Food and the Making of Mexican Identity by Jeffery M. Pilcher
5 pages in length. Countries are often associated with the food they eat and produce as a means by which to confirm their individuality. Determining this identity is one way to establish a sense of pride and independence from all other nations in that food offers an historical representation that effectively categorizes all countries. Mexico is one of the most identifiable of those that borrows part of its existence from the native foods, that being primarily corn. The writer discusses how Jeffery M.
