Chicos y chicas, Señorita Vino is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by participating in “All Around Latin America,” the brainchild of the lovely and muy talented Bren Herrera at Flanboyant Eats. Read on!
What I love about Hispanic Heritage Month is the opportunity to share the rich diversity of our culture, whether it’s through literature, music, history, or food. In my case, I am an American-born Latina whose parents are from Perú and whose mother was born in the Peruvian city of Arequipa to two Syrian immigrants. My Syrian grandmother’s brother landed in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where my party-til-you-drop Brazilian cousins live. I owe them a huge obrigada for introducing me to Brazil’s national cocktail, the Caipirinha.
