Agriculture crisis in Puerto Rico

cafe3On December 6 PBS posted this video about a local Chef ensuring all of her food is locally grown! How amazing is that.  A place known for its Sugar Cane… that started Domino Sugar!.. is now trying to get back on the map as organic and growing.  I mention this now because there is a very important little fact in this video that otherwise I wouldn’t have known.  There was a cargo ship that sank carrying food to the island.  Why is this important?  Because as of yesterday all Floridians thought they were in heaven when thousands of cans of Cafe Bustelo washed ashore!  After I research some more I will write another post on how the government actively offers incentives to landowners to not cultivate their land and not produce food.

Angie Martinez Day!


On November 19, 2015 City Hall held a Puerto Rican Heritage celebration. This year they honored artist Manny Vega and “The Voice of New York”,  Angie Martinez with their day. Angie has been a pillar in the hip hop community and for those of you that saw Brown Sugar she asks the ever famous question.. When did you fall in love with hip hop. Angie took a turn last year, as did fellow Boricua Fat Joe, and went healthy! Angie helped write a book on making typical Puerto Rican food with healthy alternatives.
