A Love Note: 'Grandma's Gorditas'

Posted By on Thu, Dec 27, 2012 at 1:07 PM

From the fine folks at Tucson Meet Yourself, their latest online newsletter features a video from one of Maribel Alvarez's UA folklore students that's worth your time (don't blame us if it makes you hungry and in the mood to listen to more Agustin Lara):

Food and Love. The two have been connected through the ages. Our speech is sprinkled with phrases about seduction, satisfaction, longing, indulgence, moderation that often implicate both basic human needs: affection and nourishment. Jose Serrano, a student in Dr. Maribel Alvarez's folklore course "Food Narratives" this fall has produced a beautiful video honoring his "Grandma's Gorditas."
