The word “comida” is wonderfully multitasking. It can be translated as “food”, “meal”, a specific type of meal – “dinner” – and it can even mean “eaten”, the adjective, its female form. Comida is a synonym of “alimento“. Alimento also means food, only food, and perhaps nutriment. It does not carry the multitasking ability of comida, and it is closer to the nutritional function of food, with its verb iteration, “alimentarse“, or to nourish oneself.

This blog is a space where food and nutrition studies meet Latino and Latin American studies, through the sharing of ongoing related research as well as a place for explore new ideas.
