Passing down recipes and embracing cultural food practices has been one of the few meaningful ways for me to connect with my
Cuban American ancestry. In preparing and consuming foods that are connected to my matriarchal lineage, I actively perform the role
of officiant in a ceremony of remembering and memorializing multiple generations of my female family members whose identities were
often relegated to their roles in the kitchen and other domestic spaces. By creating these temporal memorials, I make space to ruminate on their contributions and through an intersectional lens, while attempting to better understand the concentric circles of loss that surround these women.
