Diasporican by Illyanna Maisonet is not just a cookbook, but a beautiful and deeply personal journey through the history and culture of Puerto Rican food. Maisonet’s passion for her family’s recipes and the island’s disappearing foodways is evident in every page of this stunning book.

The over 90 recipes included in Diasporican are not just delicious, but also tell a powerful story of Puerto Rico’s Stateside diaspora. From classic dishes like Tostones, Pernil, and Arroz con Gandules to more unique offerings such as Pinchos with BBQ Guava Sauce, Rabbit Fricassee with Chayote, and Flan de Queso, Maisonet showcases the ingenuity and diversity of Puerto Rican cuisine.

What sets Diasporican apart is Maisonet’s rigorous research and dedication to preserving the island’s flavor traditions. She traces the roots of Puerto Rican cuisine to the Taino, Spanish, African, and even United States’ cultures that created it. Through travel and food photography, Maisonet reveals how food connects us to family, history, conflict, and migration.

Not only is Diasporican a feast for the senses, but it also educates and inspires. It’s no wonder that this book was named one of the ten best cookbooks of the year by Simply Recipes and one of the best cookbooks of the year by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Saveur, Smithsonian Magazine, Delish, and Vice.

Diasporican is a must-have for anyone interested in Puerto Rican cuisine, food history, or just looking for delicious recipes that tell a powerful story.

José Andrés, chef, cookbook author, and founder of World Central Kitchen, describes it perfectly as “a delicious journey through purpose, place, and the power of food that you won’t want to miss.”
