In the letter we sent to invite the eight chefs and bartenders appearing in this recipe guide, we said they were not required to get political and conform to the anti-Trump theme we envisioned. Instead, we simply asked them to celebrate Latin culinary cultures from here to Tierra del Fuego. We did this because the president has, in part, anchored his campaign and administration on exploiting racial tensions and white supremacy for political gain, to say nothing of his contemptuous proposed border wall. We'd prefer to celebrate diversity. Making these Latin-inspired recipes won't suddenly make someone part of the solution to this rising tide of hate, but these trends cannot go unopposed, and food has always been political. Enjoy the following recipes, and let the flavors stand as an expression of why America is better as a melting pot.
