Event Description

Anita Rodriguez is a New Mexican artist and writer. Her father’s side goes back ten generations in her beloved Taos valley, and her mother is a painter who came to Taos from Austin, Texas. Anita’s training as an artist began in childhood from her mother and extended to her formal training at the Colorado College. With many artist shows to her credit, Coyota in the Kitchen is Anita’s first full-length book. Coyota in the Kitchen is a book of stories and recipes, introducing the reader to two eccentric families that would never have eaten together, let alone exchanged recipes, but for the improbable marriage of the author’s parents. Recalling the good and the terrible cooks in her family, Anita also shares the complications of navigating a safe path among contradictory cultural perspectives. She takes us from the mountain villages of New Mexico in the 1940s to sipping mint juleps on the porch of a mansion in the South, and on a prolonged pilgrimage to Mexico and back again to New Mexico. Accompanied by Rodríguez’s vibrant paintings―including scenes of people eating on fiesta nights and plastering an adobe church―Coyota in the Kitchen shows how food reflects the complicated family histories that shape our lives.
